Metchosin Day organizer needed

Volunteers sought to keep popular event going

One of Metchosin’s most popular events needs a new organizer.

Mary Gidney organized Metchosin Day for many years, but a move into Victoria means a replacement organizer for the annual celebration is needed.

Gidney has offered to help work with and train a new volunteer organizer over the next two years.

The September event routinely draws hundreds from around the region and features hayrides, music, vintage cars, and horse demonstrations, among many other activities.

A lamb and salmon barbecue caps off the busy one-day event.

This year’s 50th anniversary event goes Sept. 10. Those interested in volunteering to organize Metchosin Day should contact Gidney at mgidney@shaw.ca or 250-589-6145.
