Transition Sooke’s latest monthly newsletter was distributed to our email list on the weekend. Check it out here online. If you’d like a copy sent to your own email box, please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks as ever to our designer/editor Sofie Hagens and contributor Jeff Bateman.
Given the wonderful range of activities happening in the Sooke region at any given time, we usually inadvertently overlook a couple of events we later wish we’d shared. One of note this time around is the Sooke Family Resource Centre‘s second Wadams Way Public Market, set for Saturday, Sept. 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The day will feature family activities, live music, booths featuring local artisans, a Fair Trade Aboriginal Art Show and much else. Not to be missed!
As you’ll see in the newsletter, our marquee attraction this month is the Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke federal candidates’ debate on climate change and related issues, set for Wednesday, Sept. 16 at Edward Milne Community School from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Mayor Maja Tait has kindly agreed to moderate the evening, and childcare services are available on-site by pre-registration. Sincere thanks to our local sponsors: A Sea of Bloom Floral Design, Seaflora Wild Organic Seaweed Skincare, the Sooke Harbour House and Tugwell Creek Honey Farm & Meadery.
