Weather not Cooperating for 50th it Seems

Hi Everyone!  As some of you may have heard I had to make an executive decision and the Party in the Park on Saturday is now going to be the Party at the Arena.  I’ve watched the weather forecast all week and due to the chance of rain on Saturday we have to switch venues.  Unfortunately the bouncy houses cannot be set up if it’s raining since it’s just to dangerous!  The Party in the Arena will go from 1:00 – 4:00 as planned after the parade.
Tomorrow nights Party in the Plaza will still be held at the Plaza with a list of events that will be posted in the morning.
Please spread the word!
Hope to see everyone over the next couple of days!

Classic Rock Bingo: A Huge Success At The Ridge

Classic Rock Bingo: A Huge Success At The Ridge

Every week The Ridge hosts Classic Rock Bingo and it’s getting more popular each week. How do you play?

You get a free music bingo card when you come to the Ridge, instead of numbers, the card has names of songs. The games feature the most popular songs of the last 50 years, when you hear a song that is on your card, you mark it off. When you get two lines, holler bingo! And you get to choose from a collection of prizes.

You don’t need to be a music buff to play the game, if you don’t know a song, the bingo host will tell you. Everyone has the same chance of winning. Last week there was a winner that was 8 years old and another winner was 68 years old. It truly is a game for the whole family. Classic Rock Bingo gets under way at 6 p.m. every Wednesday night.

Former Gold Riverites Car Stolen from Courtenay

1971 Chevy Chevelle

Sometime late afternoon/early evening of Aug 19 my 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle was taken from the parking lot of my apartment building on Ryan road in Courtenay. The RCMP are on the look out but I would appreciate any and all help in locating the car’s whereabouts. It could possibly be anywhere on the Island by now. It is very recognizable as you can see by the photo. (Click photo to enlarge)

I graduated in Gold River in 2012 so am asking the community of Gold River to keep their eyes out as well.

If you have any info or see the car please call Courtenay Crime Stoppers at 1-250-388-1321

Thank you!

Caedon Newman (Nicole Lajeunesse’s son)
