Victoria band Virgo Rising will be playing their first public event in more than a decade.

Roots/folk/ragtime musicians The Chattering Class, also from Victoria, will perform as well.

Admission to the show will be free, although a collection will be taken in order to help pay the musicians.

A concession with coffee and goodies will also be available on-site.

The show will begin at 7 p.m.

Lions’ Day for Kids

Saturday, July 30, will have children flock to Lake Cowichan’s Saywell Park, for the annual Lions Day for Kids event.

The day’s events, intended for kids aged 12 and under, will include things like hot dogs, games, prizes, and other family-friendly activities, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The tile project

Although disheartened by recent vandalism, the tile project at the Duck Pond’s trestle walking bridge will carry on.

Volunteers are currently being sought to help stick tiles to the sides of the bridge.

Those interested in helping out can stop by the trestle any time between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., Tuesday, July 26, to help organizers install tiles.

As they’re down a week’s work, there’s still a fair number of tiles that require installation.
