Another Sold Out Show!

Our fundraising drive to build the ‘Lighthouse Villa for Seniors’ has now reached a new high of $145,000… thanks to you!

We had a successful evening Saturday, November 18th, with Elvis Elite, starring Steve Elliot in a tribute to the King, Elvis Presley.

Along with the entertainment, we had a live and silent auction 
with diverse offerings for bidding, Stocking Stuffer bags with
guaranteed prizes, and an amazing meal. All enjoyed by a generous and appreciative crowd.

We can’t thank you enough for supporting us with your donation and helping to raise awareness for our project. 
Please continue to follow our progress at www.bshs.ca. 
With the aid of community-minded supporters like you, 
we will make seniors housing in Bowser a reality!

Many thanks from the Board of Directors,

More Firewood

MORE FIREWOOD

This weekend we will be teaming up with the Deep Bay Fire and Rescue Society for a Firewood Fundraiser. Many of you asked if we would be back again and we are happy to say that Firewood will once again be available on October 7, 8th and 9th. Details are on the poster below. Please spread the word by sharing this email with your friends, family and neighbours as well as any networks you have.

Firewood Sale! September 23-24!

Now that the weather has cooled….. our firewood sale is back on for this coming week-end September 23 and 24th.

For the past thirteen years, Bowser Seniors Housing Society (BSHS) has been working to build Independent Supportive Housing that will allow seniors to remain in their community when they can no longer maintain their homes.

The Board has been busy fundraising over the last four years to make this dream a reality.   We are hoping for funding in the very near future from government sources.

This is exciting news!  However, this is not 100% project funding and we will still have to carry a mortgage.   To keep the mortgage as small as possible, we will continue to fundraise.   Our upcoming fundraiser on September 23rd and 24th  is an opportunity for you to cut Firewood  This is a Community Firewood Fundraiser and has been made possible through Island Timberlands on their private forest land.

To participate you will need to travel to the gate at the top of Cochrane Road (6.5 km from Hwy 19A) in Qualicum Bay between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 23rd  and Sunday, September 24th.   You will need power saws and protective equipment and be prepared to pay at the gate for your permit – $30.00 CASH for every half cord (equivalent to a level pick up bed or utility trailer).   The last permit will be issued at 2:30 p.m. each day, with the gate locked at 4 p.m.

Please come out and support Bowser Seniors Housing Society.
