Happy Summer! Congratulations to all the grads of 2022. This is also the time of year when activities conclude, and new ones are planned for.  

Last two days for Chair Yoga are today, Friday June 24 and Monday, June 27 with Carole at the Hall before a summer break in July. Chair Yoga will be back Aug. 5. 

Fashion Show! Yes, all you fashionistas out there needing a summertime fix, Harbourside Friendships this Thursday, June 30 at 10:30 a.m. at The Hall is where you want to be! The Fashion Show will feature the wonderful clothing from our Bargain Barn. 

The inaugural Pottery Prowl, a two-day self-guided studio tour celebrating the talent of Sunshine Coast ceramic artists takes place Saturday and Sunday July 9 and 10  from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Geopia at Earls Cove, the magnificent gallery, gardens and studio of Pia Sillem and George Connell will be the highlight of the tour. This is a Coast-wide event with 12 studios participating. Visit linktr.ee/potteryprowl for the studios’ profiles, maps, and contact information and plan your prowl! 

The Dock Project returns! Once again, Ken Mellquist will graciously and generously host Gunboat Bay Blues Saturday, July 23, rain or shine. This fantastic evening of live music from his dock on Gunboat Bay, featuring the extremely popular Peter Van Trio, is becoming a summertime tradition as this is the third annual. When the pandemic hushed live performances, Ken found a way to keep the music alive with the audience afloat on their boats. For more info contact Ken at ken@mellquist.ca 

I have had inquiries as to the absence of the weekly Madeira Market. After four very chilly Fridays in April with only myself, Beads & Blooms and Judy and Rob from Langdale, Judy’s Handcrafted Gifts, lack of other participants and customers we decided to pause the market. If enough interest and commitment it will resume. You can contact me at 604-989-0851 or by email. To all my bouquet loving friends, not to worry, I will have an endless supply for you very soon.  

Let me share your news and info in my column by emailing me, dilysanne@hotmail.com. Have a wonderful week!
