Recommended reads: Our July Newsletter + the summer edition of the Rural Observer

Check out the news updates, events calendar, inspirational quotes and social-media highlights in our just-published July newsletter, which was distributed to our mailing list this weekend by editor Sofie Hagens.

Also worth a read (as always) is the latest edition of the Rural Observer. It includes Jeff Bateman’s overview of Transition Sooke’s vision and current activities; Dogwood Initiative regional organizer Terry Dance-Bennink’s rousing take on the upcoming federal election; columns by MP Randall Garrison and MLA John Horgan; articles on the Sooke Sailing Association and the Stinking Fish art tour; a call for electoral reform from Dogwood Sooke’s Gail and Katie Armitage;  and some celebratory words about the heritage designation recently granted (after a 12-year campaign by Shirley residents) to the Sheringham Point Lighthouse. Kudos once more to RO editor Terri Alcock for producing another great edition focused on life right here in the JDF.
