Tickets have been printed and the itinerary set for the arrival of the Ohtaki/Date city students and their adult chaperone delegates who will be arriving in Lake Cowichan on Oct. 6.

Organizers have been busy making sure that everything will be perfect, from the meet and greet potluck on the afternoon of Oct. 6 ,at the Lake Cowichan Firehall, to the banquet night at Centennial Hall on Oct. 9.

The meet and greet will begin at 3 p.m., and gives a chance for homestay hosts to meet their homestays and will give the delegates their first taste of Lake Cowichan hospitality.

A full list of activities has been put together for the week, including shopping in Nanaimo, a visit to the hockey stick in Duncan, the Kinsol Trestle, and the fish ladders at Skutz falls.

Delegates will also have an opportunity to bowl at Youbou Lanes, take part in classes at Lake Cowichan Secondary and take in some local history at the Kaatza Station Museum.

Coun. Jayne Ingram says that the volunteers involved in this visit have been working hard, but that having a committee of volunteers lightens the work load.

The banquet on Oct. 9, will include a ballet performance by Alicia Fall, a dance number by three young men from Carlsons School of Dance, and possibly a performance by the Khowutzun Tzinguaw Dancers.

The event is open to everyone, and tickets are available through the town office at a nominal cost of $15.
