The Madeira Market is back July 2 to celebrate Canada Day.

Happy Canada Day 2022 everyone! We have so much to celebrate, be thankful for and reflect upon. Top of the long list is how geographically fortunate we are not only to be in Canada but here on the Sunshine Coast. I could go on but as a full-time resident I know all about finding paradise.  

How quickly things change for the better and this weekend Madeira Market is back Saturday July 2 to celebrate Canada Day at the courtyard at the Hall 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Come visit! Come shop! See artisan vendors and enjoy live music with the wonderful, talented Matt Richards. Matt has fantastic original songs and when covering tunes of the past will share their history. I will be there as a vendor with bouquets, moonstone, and mermaid treasures, to enjoy Matt’s music and to have Tony’s best-in-the-world Veggie Burger for lunch. The Harbour Gallery will be open and also joining us with incredible works of arts from local artists. Carol Goodwin is back after a three-year hiatus with window charms and jewelry. Teaguen’s Island will be overflowing with her creations. Hot tip, you can phone in your order to Tony’s but do it early. 

FibreWorks Studio and Gallery has a new exhibit “Mix it UP” on display now through to July 31 at the Yurts. Enjoy the Virtual Artist Talk July 3, 11 a.m. to noon. 

Mark your calendars, School of Music Coffee House July 8: Next Friday welcomes to the stage performers, Mark Petersen, Enns of the Earth and Westerley Acappella Group. Doors open at 7 p.m. Music at 7:30 p.m. $10 minimum suggested donation at the door. 

I am awestruck, full of admiration, appreciation and cannot extend enough thanks to all of you, our amazing hardworking front-line heroes serving in our community. I don’t go out much but when I do here in Madeira and Egmont, I encounter some of the best people on the planet, those on the front line.  

We are Canadians and we are going to celebrate, so come on down Saturday and have some more Madeira my dears!
