It's BBQ SEASON and we have a HOT DEAL for you! A Fiesta Express BBQ & Steaks! Value at $500. Come and check out our display on Saturdays in front of Tourism Information Booth and purchase your tickets for $2 ea or 3/$5. The draw is on June 27 and all proceeds go to the Quadra Island Senior Building Fund.

Many thanks to Quadra Island Builders for the great price on the BBQ and to Heriot Bay True Value Store for the $100.00 gift certificate. And special thanks to the community for your support and making this dream possible!

At a recent meeting of the newly constituted Board of Directors we had a presentation by John Toelle, who has volunteered to act as project manager in assembling the specifications for the bid package to start construction of the first duplex. We are very happy to announce that the project is underway!

Debra Gilliland has volunteered to take over as fundraiser, and Bob Lasby will assist. Bob will continue with publicity and membership. Jeanne Stoppard joins Kurt Hagen on the Building Committee. It is great to have younger folks stepping in to these jobs! The board will be having regular monthly meetings, with extra meetings as required to deal with the building project.

We have another member of the 1000 Club -- another few dozen will assure the first duplex is finished to occupancy in 2009…..LET’S GO QUADRA!!
