It seems that PGOSAns like to chow down on those yummy pancakes and sausages. Let's make the August pancake breakfast the best one yet!
When: 10 to 11:30 am, Friday, August 19 Where: Parksville Community Park Picnic Shelter What: Pancakes, Sausages, Coffee, Tea, Juice and Good Times! Cost: only $5! What to bring: a lawn chair and your appetite.
Can you help serving up those delicious pancakes and sausages? All volunteers welcome (and appreciated!)
And while we're on the subject of the Pancake Breakfast...
We would like to have a pool of Pancake Breakfast volunteers who have their FOODSAFE BC Certification.
Do you have your certification and would like to help ensure that we are following best practices?
Or, are you interested in obtaining your certification for the Pancake Breakfast? PGOSA will cover the course fee upon successful completion of the course.
There are two possible dates Sept 24 and Oct 1.
This will be a combined effort between PGOSA, Qualicum Beach Seniors Centre and The Bradley Centre.
Contact Doug Williams for more details and to register.

Guys vs Gals Slo-Pitch Game – Wednesday, July 20th
What a game! Here is what a summer visitor from Vancouver said, “ I have not seen entertainment like this in years and I watch a lot of local ball”
49 runs were scored. The gals got 24 of them and the guys got 25. The game was so close it came down to the last batter in the bottom of the seventh – the same as last year.
Congratulations to all of you players – you are all a class act!
Congratulations to Sue Whittaker and Art Klingspor for MVP’s
Join PGOSAn Jo Kelsall and neighbours for the "Laneway Art" exhibition. And while you're there, take advantage of the opportunity to view some neighbourhood gardens.
