Harbour-Egmont Highlights: Shout out for food bank support at May Day

Also, watch for bears out and about
Pender Harbour

Was that the best May Day celebration yet? How about the Attack on Danger Bay Longboard Race? WOW! On behalf of the community and all that attended, a standing ovation and enormous thank you to the organizers and volunteers. 

The Pender Harbour Food Bank Society sends a shout out full of heartfelt gratitude to the gardeners who generously donated plants for the second annual Pender Harbour Food Bank Plant Sale at May Day. Another goes out to Gord Sanders whose brilliant idea to open his property on Lagoon Road for parking by donation for the food bank brought in welcome funds. Thanks to John, Craig, and Peter Salem, all the volunteers and shoppers that made this fundraiser possible – $700 was raised. Joka Wright is the humble, tireless superwoman heading up our food bank. Her husband Bill has the job no one wants, he is the treasurer. This dynamic duo feeds our people. Namaste. Donations can be made by e-transfer to

The Sunshine Coast Bear Alliance is counting and mapping out where mother bears with cubs are on the Coast. Have you seen them in our area? If you do, please contact me by email, address below, or Messenger. I encourage everyone to visit site for helpful info to keep us all safe. A cub was hit by a car on the weekend. The young wildlife, with and without their moms, are everywhere at this time. Please do not speed.
