More good times in the works at Pender Harbour Golf Club – the annual memorial fundraiser to honour the amazing Jan Watson, who put her heart and soul into the club, is looking good to go on Aug. 28. Stay tuned for updates on the club’s Facebook page and be prepared to book as this event will be an instant sellout.
The vibe is a happy one in downtown Madeira these days with The Bargain Barn open Wednesdays and Saturdays noon to 3 p.m., Harbour Gallery 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Madeira Market every Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Madeira Market this week, weather permitting, will have treats and treasures for everyone from Judy’s Handcrafted Gifts, Beads, Blooms & Baked and live music as singer-songwriter Matt Richards will entertain. Educational, helpful and timely information from Sunshine Coast Bear Alliance and ElderDog Sunshine Coast will be available. Come visit, come shop!
June is National Indigenous History Month. The Kamloops Residential School discovery has overshadowed what was to be a month of celebration. More than ever this is a time to learn, appreciate and acknowledge the contributions First Nations, Inuit and Metis people have made in Canada. Our own EarthFair Store has many important reads, including those focused on the history of Indigenous people such as On the Cusp of Contact. There is insight and knowledge to be gained in the pages of these books.
