Thanks for your generosity

Lions Club and Sooke mayor express heart felt gratitude for donations

The Sooke Lions club was, once again, pleased to sponsor Moss Cottage Christmas at the Sooke Region Museum and host Breakfast with Santa at the Sooke Community Hall.

Thanks to the Sooke Community Association who let us use their hall for the breakfast.

It was a great breakfast enjoyed by young and old. Our donation box collected money which will all be donated to the Christmas Bureau/Food Bank.

Thank you Sooke and district for continuous support of your Sooke Lions club since 1965.

Steve Wright

President

 

On behalf of the District of Sooke, I would like to thank everyone for all of the time and effort put into this year’s food drive.

It is only because of the spirit and huge time commitment put into this project by the many volunteers that this project once again enjoys a successful conclusion.

I want to say a special thanks to the members of the Sooke Fire Department who have been tireless in organizing and keeping this project on track. Many of us have put in a couple of hours here and there but the fire department has been the mainstay, filling in shifts and doing the hard work after we have all gone home.

Once again thank you to everyone.

Mayor Wendal Milne
