A message from Gord Kruger, Evergreen Club president
Greetings Once Again Everyone!!!!…..I know that I spoke quite confidently about the coming of spring and all the wonders it brings back in my April message. Seems I might have gotten a little ahead of myself. Shortly after my declaration of spring, sunshine and all that other good stuff, nothing seems to have changed. We have just experienced another month of the same old late winter routine…..some rain, some wind, some more rain, and even some more wind. I know we constantly hear about “Climate Change” but this is not quite what I had expected. And on the other side of the granite barrier it’s even worse as the prairie provinces and Eastern Canada have had some pretty wintery spring conditions. We have actually been better than they, so I’ll save my whine.
A couple of great musical adventures are happening in May. The first is on Sunday May 6th as “The Jacqueline Lambeth Singers” will present a Gospel Music Extravaganza in the Conference Hall with a start time of 2pm. This musical event will be a fundraiser for the Sonshine Club lunch program and tickets are available at the centre office. That’s followed by “Mystery, Magic & Majesty on Sunday May 13th. This is an Evergreen Club event that features the Comox Valley Concert Band under the direction of Denise Marquette presenting songs of intrigue and inspiration. The band will feature selections to exhilarate the body and lift the soul. This is planned as a great Mothers day event. Tickets are available at the centre office or at the door on event day.
And do not despair my friends as the sunshine will anoint us very soon and this wonderful valley will swing into full summer mode. For those new to the valley many of our great summer activities will keep you busy and entertained. May long weekend activities are centered in Cumberland….July long weekend (Canada Day) activities in Courtenay….August (BC Day) long weekend activities in Comox. In amongst that mix are things like Music Fest in July, Fall Fair in September and Sunday Night Concerts in Simms Park. There are many other special days that pop up along the way…..busy summer times ahead. And something to remember this summer….”You do not need a parachute to sky dive, but you do need a parachute to sky dive twice” Adios for now….gk
