Come in out of the rain and enjoy the party

Our little legion is opening its doors for the first indoor show since “the before times.” With its newly sanded floors, it hasn’t looked this good ever, probably not even when it was a fishing camp (in the real before times).

Our little legion is opening its doors for the first indoor show since “the before times.” With its newly sanded floors, it hasn’t looked this good ever, probably not even when it was a fishing camp (in the real before times).

The inaugural rip-it-up, indoor hootenanny this Friday, Sept. 17 is hosted by none other than your favourite Ween tribute, Captain Fantasy! Doors: 7 p.m., and the music goes till the next day (1 a.m.). Members $8/guests $15. Capacity is less than half, so get registered for a seat at rclegionevents.com. As per provincial requirements, proof of vaccination will need to be shown.

Saturday at the legion brings a whole new homegrown party to the indoors, an Open Stage/Jam night! Reserve at info@robertscreeklegion.ca for stage time for you and your fellow musos, and show us what has kept you sane (or not) these last 77 Saturdays. From 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. Next Saturday, Sept. 25, Staggers and Jaggs brings their musical prowess to the #219, rclegionevents.com to get tickets.

On Sunday, Sept. 26, get outside and celebrate World Rivers Day with the Sunshine Coast Stream Keepers at Roberts Creek Pier. Help clean up the estuary, riparian zone and beach of Roberts Creek and learn how to identify a creek’s riparian zones and keep them healthy! Meet them at 11 a.m. and bring gloves. Volunteers with questions, email scstreamkeepers@gmail.com. The latest B.C. health guidelines of will be followed

RCCA annual general meeting alert! Wednesday, Sept, 22 at 7 p.m., Roberts Creek Community Hall. It’s time to step up and get involved with the community, join your community association and maybe even run for board of directors. Email vicepresident@robertscreekcommunity.ca for more info. Marvel at the president’s report, be dazzled at the acumen of the financial report. Applaud the election of directors and be in awe of the plans for 2022

(robertscreekcommunity.com). Masks/vaccinations are required.

There were about 30 of my neighbours on Harman Road this past Sunday, expressing their opposition to a rezoning application to create twelve 2.5 acre lots there. Get informed, so you can formulate an opinion, by contacting SCRD senior planner Yuli Siao, yuli.siao@srcd.ca, or if you already have an opinion, let our director, Andreas Tize, know at andreas.tize@scrd.ca or 604-218-3402.

If you are denied service or access to something provided by business or government based on something you cannot change, that is discrimination and it is illegal. If you are refused a place based on your colour, or denied a job because of your sex, then you have a valid complaint. If, on the other hand, you can’t enter a restaurant because you have no shirt, lose your licence because you don’t buckle up, or you refuse to follow public health orders and don’t get a vaccine and now you can’t go to the bar, then that’s on you, because it is something you can change. If you think you are being discriminated against, you’re not.
