Metchosin Minute: for Nov. 25 to Dec. 4

Community events aimed at residents of Metchosin and the West Shore

Friday, Nov. 25, 7 p.m.

Come on down to the Metchosin Community House, 4430 Happy Valley Rd., for a film night featuring Hadwin’s Judgment. The movie was inspired by the book The Golden Spruce, a True Story of Myth, Madness and Greed, written by John Vaillant about environmental “terrorist” Grant Hadwin. Ex-Metchosinite T.J. Watt will be the evening’s special guest.

Thursday, Dec. 1, 7 p.m.

Mayor John Ranns will speak on the proposed boundary swap between Metchosin, Langford and Beecher Bay First Nation. The event will take place at the Metchosin Community House and all are welcome.

Sunday, Dec. 4, 7 p.m.

The Metchosin Community Hall, 4401 William Head Rd., will host the Pearson College Christmas concert. A colourful choir, a raffle draw and refreshments are on the menu. Donations will be accepted for the food bank.

Ongoing

The Metchosin Foundation is looking for ideas on the feasibility or means to make a storable (foldable) table top model of the Metchosin landscape, for use in environmental education. If you have any ideas on how this might be done, or are interested in helping, please contact Kem Luther at kemluther@gmail.com.
