Thank you, Great Lake Walk volunteers

To drum up some early interest, and to thank volunteers of the past and present, Great Lake Walk organizers held a customer appreciation cake-cutting in front of Lake Cowichan’s Country Grocer, Saturday, April 16.

The 10th Annual Great Lake Walk is fast approaching!

To drum up some early interest, and to thank volunteers of the past and present, Great Lake Walk organizers held a customer appreciation cake-cutting in front of Lake Cowichan’s Country Grocer, Saturday, April 16.

“We’re always looking for more volunteers,” Joan Hieta said.

Special pins, and a grand prize of $1,000 in services from the Honeymoon Bay Lodge and Retreat are in the works.

The grand prize will be part of a draw that will include those who finish the 56 kilometre walk around Cowichan Lake.

The Great Lake Walk is set to take place Saturday, September 17. Early bird registrations are $40 until July 1, with increasingly expensive registrations taking place until September 1.
