Madeira Market this and every Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. behind The Hall is a great place to visit and shop. Vendors have wonderful treasures to offer: Huckleberry Pottery, Rachel’s Artwork Rocks, Young Living potions, essential oils (and a whole lot more), dahlia bouquets, and summer bling! Delicious lunch from Tony at Triple B’s is a must and worth waiting for. The halibut and chips are five-star! Huge thanks to the talented entertainer, singer, songwriter, guitarist Matt Richards for great music last weekend and our fantastic, lovely vendors. Hope he will join us again this Saturday. COVID protocols in place. Tables are $10 for vendors. Call 604-989-0851. Proceeds to the PHCC to maintain The Hall.

Thanks to Les and Diane Roberson, Northwest Crossfire Club (and loyal fans of this column) for the perfect get-together during these COVID times. The rally along our beautiful Sunshine Coast was fantastic, pure joy! Thanks too, for all the help caring for a damsel in distress with her Ladybug. My first time as a car club member and I highly recommend it. Safe distancing is mandatory.
Have a great week, everyone. Safety first. Be kind (the best way to be). Karma will reward you. Contact me with your news at firstname.lastname@example.org for the Friday edition of Coast Reporter.
