Nootka Sound RCMP News Release – Back to School


News Release

It’s back to school for Gold River and Tahsis students next week. “We’re encouraging parents to review the rules of the road with their children and go over their daily route to and from school. Drivers should expect more traffic and watch for children, especially in and around school zones” stated Cst.Walker of the Nootka Sound RCMP

The first day of school this year is on Tuesday September 6th and the Nootka Sound RCMP along with the ICBC Speed Watch Volunteers will be out monitoring traffic to ensure that motorists are complying with the school zone speed limits which are posted 30km/hr between the hours of 8am and 5pm on school days. School buses are back on the road as well and motorists are reminded to obey the red flashing lights regarding no passing as children are either entering or exiting the stopped buses.

Carpet Steaming Iron Needed

Hi everyone. Does anyone have a CARPET SEAMING IRON?  I need to use one for 2 hours or so. I can rent one at Home Depot, but I’d have to return it the next day which is a lot of driving for the little use I require.
Any reply is appreciated.
Thanks. Dan 250-283-9207

Gold River Days Family Bike Ride


Via Betty Bell

I would like to thank everyone who helped make our first Family Ride a success.

With all your help and participation we managed to raise $283.25 for the Gold River Volunteer Fire Dept. This was from the entry fee for the Ride, donations and the BBQ.

There were 16 registered riders and two volunteer riders. For those of you who would like to join us next year you have 364 days to get ready for Family Ride 2017.

The Winners of the random prize draw for the Family Bike Ride were:

  • Flemming Alstrup
  • Kathy Durante
  • Vicky Ruterberg

They each receive a bike light.
