Due to the uncertainties surrounding the current pandemic, the annual book sale held in October at Bonner School will be cancelled for this year. We plan to resume the sale in October 2021.
On a positive note, we are happy to let you know that the annual grants from the foundation fund will continue to be given out this year before December to Cowichan Women Against Violence, Cowichan Family Life and the Cowichan and District S.P.C.A.
Next year’s sale will be well worth waiting for, judging by the quality of donations we have received so far. We are continuing to accept book donations, so please call 250-743-4627 for drop-off details. Thank you for your patience and continuing support!
We are looking forward to seeing you again next year during the excitement of the sale. In the meantime, we wish you the very best of health.
Jackie and Jim Barker
So quickly the garden bursts into flower announcing spring’s arrival. The flowering cherry is hauntingly beautiful at night when illuminated from below. The garden gate and old cow bell watch as the garden transforms from season to season.
The Garden House gnome was entered in the Mill Bay/Malahat Historical Society’s Good Old Daze event in July 2015 and received an Honorable Mention award. At the October book sale at Bonner School, he sat cheekily watching everyone as they entered the sale.
The snow arrived gently and before we knew it the world was monochrome. The silence was heavenly, especially while walking in the not-so-dark evening.
