A young Sooke girl, two years ago diagnosed with stage-four Burkitt lymphoma, a fast-growing and rare form of cancer, is giving back to the community.
Lily Lecinana, along with family and friends, is hosting a bottle drive in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness.
The bottle drive is at the SEAPARC Leisure Complex sign this Saturday (Sept. 19) from 8 a.m.to 4 p.m.
Lecinana, 11, spent months in B.C. Children’s Hospital before returning home last February. The disease has been in remission for 10 months.
What’s wild and wonderful to you? Landscape? People? Pets? Colour? Texture? Pattern?
Artists hope to answer that question at the Wild & Wonderful art show at the Sooke Arts Council Gallery until Oct. 16.
The Sooke Arts Council Gallery is located at Unit 6, 6596 Sooke Rd.
The Sooke Garden Club resumes its new season online with Zoom this Wednesday (Sept. 23) at 7 p.m..
This month Kristen Miskelly of Saanich Native Plants is the guest speaker. She’ll discuss how gardening with native plants can help maintain local biodiversity.
Like an old-fashioned show and shine, the weekly Sooke Coffee and Cars is a chance for local car enthusiasts to come together and marvel over shiny paint jobs and what’s under the hood.
Running every Saturday through the summer starting at 6:30 p.m. in the A&W parking lot, Sooke Coffee and Cars is an everyone-welcome event highlighting classic, custom and vintage cars, trucks and motorcycles.
Cue the music.
