We’re always stoked when Cirque du Soleil comes to Victoria. Opening night at Varekai thrilled us bringing the elements of dance, acrobatics, humour, music and color — all presented in a level of artistry that the Cirque du Soleil productions are known for. Varekia continues at Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre through May 31st. Tickets from www.selectyourtickets.com
This has been a big week for Jillian McCue. The 11 year old Gordon Head Middle School grade sixer has been lobbying Saanich council for two years to allow miniature goats in her back yard and finally got her day in the sun. Monday night she stood up before council armed with a 132 name petition, a Give Me Goats T-Shirt and the support of the Mayor himself and gave an amazingly confident and compelling speech for her potential new “kids”.
We were excited to be a part of Social Media Camp, the Hillside Sea Rangers Club Beach Clean Up, and Family Sunday at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria this past weekend. Check out all the great pictures below!
Lina and Steve Zussino are known as “Canada’s Frugal Couple” having saved thousands of dollars a year on their grocery bill and rewarding themselves vacations on the points they collected. Inspiring to say the least. If we all just do half of want they do every day, we’d save a lot on something that always takes a huge chunk out of our monthly budgets.
On May 14th and 15th, we held our 13th Annual Radiothon for Kids in support of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation at Hillside Centre. Once again, you helped create a miracle. Your calls and online donations helped raise an incredible total. Watch the video below to see just how much money you raised!
Have you driven by Quadra Elementary lately? There’s a big white tent set up on the school grounds with a sign that reads “Aboriginal Art Being Created”. Our curiosity peaked so we had to take a peek inside.
We look forward to Thursday morning at 6am with a mix of anticipation and reservation. Anticipation because we can’t wait to share with you the stories that bring to light those families who are faced with the biggest challenge of their lives. Reservation because some stories are difficult to tell.
We’re doggy-sitting this beautiful dog now — it’s kind of a “trial run”? You know, to see if we could fit a dog into our life? He’s so sweet, he’s a Golden Retriever, the “supermodel” of dogs, with the personality to go with it. But I’ll say this — having a dog in your life is a pretty big deal compared to having cats, hamsters and fish, haha.
