#25 Live music and entertainment all day.
#24 Help send a Sooke youth to college or university.
#23 Make someone smile… free entry for door prize, $100 flower bouquet from Sooke Flower House.
#22 Happily spend some $$, knowing it ALL goes directly to helping neighbours and friends in need.
#21 Get a brand-new-to-you bike at such a great price, you can afford to buy one for a friend too.

#18 Empower Sooke’s youth, tomorrow’s community leaders http://www.sookeyouth.ca/
#17 Buy some plants, talk gardening with other greenery-obsessive folks.
#16 Catch up with old friends over a beverage. Or meet a new friend (maybe someone who will buy you a beverage).
#15 Send a teen on a Rotary Youth Adventure … technology, leadership, film, forestry, culinary arts.
#14 Learn how fun and fulfilling it is to be a Rotarian, maybe join the club!
#13 Support literacy, contribute to book buying for Sooke’s libraries http://www.sookewestshoreliteracy.ca

#8 Business expo… who’s who in Sooke… see and be seen!
#7 Party time….clowns, miniature ponies, free cupcakes, bouncy castle… oh yeah!
#6 Rotary pier, SEAPARC bus, what’s next? Help us decide on Sooke Rotary’s next big project.
#5 Bargains, bargains, bargains … silent auction, live auction, online auction
#4 Because Mother’s Day is a week away, buy a nice gift early (and maybe save a few bucks, but don’t tell mum).
#3, 2, & 1 to attend Rotary Auction & Spring Fair: Because it’s fun. Because you care. Because we need your help kicking off our next 25 years of serving Sooke!
