Featuring clothing sold at Cowichan Lake area businesses, and broader Cowichan Valley businesses, Lake Cowichan Secondary School Grade 12 students will be hosting a fashion show, Friday, May 27.
It will cost $4 to get in, with those opting to pay more being entered into a draw for a $50 gift certificate at Copper Lane.
“It’s to raise money for the Japanese relief fund,” key organizer Ally Earle said.
Concession goodies will be available on-site.
The fund-raising event is being held in response to the earthquake that ravaged Japan earlier this year, hitting the city of Lake Cowichan Secondary School’s sister school, Sendai, the hardest.
There are a lot of links between the Cowichan Lake area and Japan, Earle said, bringing the issue closer to home.
Television at info centre
The Cowichan Lake District Chamber of Commerce plans on purchasing a 42 inch flat screen television for the chamber’s Visitor Information Centre.
Broadcasting out the window 24/7, the television will feature photos of the area, alongside advertisements for local businesses.
“That will be free to the members and a part of the membership,” chamber president Jim Humphrey said.
Two houses being built
April saw two applications in to the Town of Lake Cowichan for single family dwellings.
“There’s still lots on the market,” chief administrative officer Joseph Fernandez said, of the low number for this time of year.
