In addition to the monumental unveiling of the International Woodworkers of America 1-80 archives, which includes the Wilmer Gold photograph archives (see Page 1), this year’s Heritage Days included the event’s normal array of entertainment, and then some.

A logging truck and bicycle parade began Saturday’s festivities, followed by a performance by Mary Egan’s music students, who are performing an original play next month.

Meanwhile, at Centennial Hall, the Kaatza Art Group hosted their annual Art Show, complete with artistic demonstrations by various members.

Overall, it was fun times for the Cowichan Lake area community.
