What's happening

Port Renfrew finished fifth in the WFN Ultimate Fishing Town Competition and I’m pleased to announce we won an affiliate prize of $1,000 from Bell T.V. The money will go to the San Juan Enhancement Society to help with repairs on some of their fish tanks.

Mike Kuzman from the hatchery said the money couldn’t have come at a better time as they need to replace approximately 60 valves at $40 each.

Thank you to everyone who supported us by voting everyday for six weeks. We could not have made it with you.

As one of our chamber members stated, “on a per capita basis of residents, Port Renfrew is the clear winner,” and I agree. Well done!

The Real Goods Market held their grand opening Saturday, June 11 to coincide with our summer market.

Real Goods Market will be open from 8 a.m to 6 p.m., closed Wednesdays. They will carry  items  such as fresh produce, dairy, breads, frozen meats and snacks. You can find them next door to our information centre.

The Tall Tree Music Festival is taking place in Port Renfrew for the second year from June 24-26. Last year’s event was so successful and was run so professionally by its organizers we, as a chamber, are very pleased to have them back.

For more information please go to their website  www.talltreemusicfestival.com
