A request had been made to the Town of Lake Cowichan from the Cowichan Valley Community Radio Society for utilization and consistent use of the band shell through the summer months for concert activity. A motion was made at Tuesday’s Town council meeting to accept this request, with minor details to still be worked out amongst staff.
The Cowichan Valley Community Radio Society will be hosting a series of summer concerts every Saturday beginning June 23 through to and including Sat., September 1. Concerts will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The Radio Society will be working with other not-for-profit organizations that wish to participate in the organization of said events, alternating the organizations each week so that everyone interested in being involved will have the chance to do so.
Participating not for profit groups are the Cowichan Valley Arts Council, Kaatza Lakeside Players, Lake Cowichan Food Bank, CICV 98.7 FM The Lake, Cowichan Lake Area Chamber of Commerce, Cowichan Lake Seniors Association, Kaatza Art Group, and the Honeymoon Bay Retreat group.
Local volunteer talent from the Cowichan Lake Region will be filling the stage with music every Saturday for the entire summer. With the permission of the performers, the shows will also be recorded and played later on CICV 98.7FM.
As there is much involved in the organization of the summer concert series, the Cowichan Valley Community Radio Society would like to invite any interested performers to contact Elvin Hedden at 250-749-6379 or email him at Kayakluver60@hotmail.com so he may schedule the entertainment accordingly. There will be an open stage from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. followed by coordinated groups until 9:30 p.m.
