Lake Cowichan Summer Concert drew multi-generational crowd

Thanks go out to the people who supported CLAC’s efforts

The organizers of the CLAC Summer Outdoor Concerts breathed a sigh of relief at the clement weather on Saturday Sept. 3.

Last year their efforts were hampered by rain, however this year the partially cloudy skies created the perfect day for sitting on the lawn and enjoying live entertainment. Between the music, weather and vendors there were many smiles throughout the afternoon and into the evening.

This year featured The Renovation Blues Band, Hell Katz and Kent Ball who were supported by the excellent sound management by Trevor Linde. An open area in front of the stage created a dance floor for many participants from two to 82 years old. More than 80 children took advantage of the scavenger hunt and received their choice of awards.

Thanks go out to the people who supported CLAC’s efforts. In addition to the CLAC executive, KB Music and Entertainment took charge of all the stage entertainment; Sharon Klein controlled the 50/50 tickets (which raised $303 dollars for the next event), Margaret Symon provided the first aid, while students Chelsea, Amanda, Jeremy and Courtney helped everyone, especially by minding the children’s activity table.

With all the support from the community, this will become a yearly event. The search is underway for more sponsorships and grants to make this a multiple day festival of the arts.

Whether you are a volunteer, vendor or musician, anyone wishing to participate in next year’s event can email info@cowichanlakeartsandculture.org.
