OUT AND ABOUT: From business welcomes to wastewater

Christine Scott and Shelley Westwood report from the street

Hopefully everyone is recharged after the long weekend and enjoying the fact that the evenings are starting to stay lighter a little longer.

We would like to welcome House of Gains, now open at 866 Goldstream Ave., to the West Shore. This second location joins House of Gains’ other store on View Street in Victoria. They offer personal training, group training, supplements and meal planning, so if your new year’s resolution includes a healthier lifestyle, why not make time to go and see them.

On Wednesday night (Feb. 10), the Westshore Chamber of Commerce monthly mixer is being hosted by the Pacific Centre Family Services Association. The gathering goes from 5 to 7 p.m.; take some time to stop by and connect with business members on the West Shore.

Also Feb. 10 is the first of three open houses on wastewater treatment options, at the Langford City Hall, 877 Goldstream Ave. from 5 to 8 p.m. Drop by if you want to find out more about what’s going on with the regional sewage issue. The City of Colwood hosts the second open house on Saturday, Feb. 13 from 1 to 4 p.m. at City Hall, 3300 Wishart Rd. And View Royal hosts the third on Feb. 15 from 5 to 8 p.m at the town hall, 45 View Royal Ave.

Also on Feb. 13, the Royal Canadian Legion in Langford will be hosting a Valentines Dance from 7 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. at 761 Station Ave. Come and dance the night away to the live music of Phoenix.

Tickets are $10 per person; for more information call 250-478-8365.

There are four Toastmasters clubs on the West Shore and they will be jointly holding an open house at the Goldstream Club at Westhills Stadium on Feb. 22 from 7 to 9 p.m. This program is for business owners and employees. For more details, email mlumm@shaw.ca.

Westshore Parks and Recreation hosts teen drop-in sessions Feb. 12 and 26 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. for youth aged 11 to 14. For more info email teen@westshorerecreation.ca.
