Canada Day & Summer in Campbell River 2018

This Summer Shoreline Real Estate Team has put together a Schedule of Events to help you make the most of your Summer in Campbell River! You can view and download our calendar here:

Shoreline Summer Calendar

Our calendar kicks off Summer with Canada Day in Campbell River but there is some exciting things in store at Spirit Square downtown on June 30 including a BBQ at 5pm put on by Greig Seafood at the same time as the Tyee Chevrolet Car Show (5-9pm), Country Music live by Jackson Hollow (7-9pm) and a Ridgerider ‘Best Western Dressed’ contest at 7:45pm.

Canada Day preparations to celebrate have already begun and the endless hours put into this community celebration every year is nothing short of amazing; businesses, volunteers and the City band together ensuring that Canada Day is an event for the entire community to enjoy.

As always we are beyond excited for the whole day of events as there is plenty to do, but a few highlights are:

Rotary Canada Day Parade begins at 3:00pm! You can find details and the parade map route HERE>>

Pancake Breakfast Located at Frank James Park (Willow Point) Details about this can be found HERE>>

Huck Finn Small Fry Fishing Derby Located at the Discovery Pier Details about this can be found HERE>>

Fireworks Located at Robert V. Ostler Park (Foreshore) Details about this can be found HERE>>

A complete list of activities on Canada Day can be viewed and downloaded here: Canada-Day-2018

Last year Shoreline Real Estate Team supported and sponsored the Discovery Passage Aquarium on their float which one first prize!  Although the Aquarium is not contributing a float this year, we still believe education about our oceans and how to preserve and keep marine life safe, is something that should be taught from an early age. This summer the Discovery Passage Aquarium has plenty to offer:

  • Instead of a float on Canada Day, they will be open until 9:30PM with face painting outside for children with an aquarium admission;
  • They will be celebrating their Birthday onSunday, July 8th. You can win prizes for coming to the aquarium dressed as a sea creature and join in for cupcakes at 12:00PM! Half off admission for the entire day;
  • On July 15th they are hosting Explorer Lab Crafts Day where you can visit the explorer lab for crafts with a by donation admission; and
  • they have their Summer Camps available. You can find out about the dates, cost and details HERE>> 

In our calendar we have included some local businesses and their summer events and camps such as Holly Hill Farm, the Campbell River Country Golf & Country Club, various local markets, and some WOW days for cruises sailing through the Discovery Passage. We consider WOW days as any more than 3 ships passing in one night. However, if you are an avid watcher, you can view the entire schedule HERE>>.

Shoreline Summer Calendar

On July 2 Spirit Square is alive from 12 – 4 for Health with a Heart where there will be face painting, live music, dancing and a bake sale to name a few. In fact, Spirit Square will be playing music every Tuesday at 12 noon with music throughout the Summer!

Keep in mind this is not an exhaustive list of events, we are sure there are many more things happening in and around the area we just have not yet heard about but what we encourage is that you get out and enjoy Campbell River and the Community this Summer and all it has to offer! If you are new to the area we are more than happy to recommend some must see spots to take in as much of the natural surroundings you can.

Now get out there and enjoy all that Campbell River has to offer this summer!

There is plenty of fun and prizes to be had, have you picked up your tickets or added yourself to the event on facebook?
Saturday, June 9 is when ROYAL LEPAGE Advance Realty is proud to start festivities at Robert Ostler Park (Foreshore Park) in Campell River.
A full day of family fun is arranged including live music, food trucks, CR Fire truck, and KIDS ZONE sponsored by Steve Marshall Ford with bounceramas, slides, games and a dunk tank with local celebs!

We are so excited about the prizes this year and want to thank all of our sponsors, this event could never be what it is without their support and of course yours, our Campbell River community!

Let us introduce you to: Serious Coffee

Serious Coffee may not be new to you or Campbell River per se, but the owner, manager and interior will be!

Nicole Rae Husby is the proud new owner of Serious Coffee at #1-2253 South Island Highway in Willow Point . With her new business endeavour she is making some serious (see what we did there?) changes to the location.

Husby took possession of the Willow Point cafe on April 19, 2018 and is planning to celebrate the reopening of Serious Coffee and unveil the major renovations currently underway on May 19th with a grand opening.  2day FM will be at the location for the grand opening from 2pm-6pm. There will also be live music, draws, prizes and of course, great coffee and food!

One of the reasons Husby says she chose a Serious Coffee franchise (besides the great coffee) “was because of the authenticity and community spirit. [We] want to make our Willow point location a hub for locals and are open to facilitating more local clubs/groups and people’s ideas for new events.”  The “we” she may be referring to is her long time best friend, Christie Keddy.  Keddy and Husby have known each other their whole lives and have been best friends for years. Keddy will be the cafe’s manager, managing and running the front of house. She is definitely a big part of the business.

Major renovations are currently underway at the cafe which include almost a complete gutting of the previous space. Husby clearly has big plans for the space to bring it up to date and add a north island feel. “We have sourced the most beautiful materials from local-craftsmen including handmade tables and live edge slabs that are absolutely stunning!” “It’s going to be clean, functional and welcoming for all customers including whether they are typing an assignment for work, enjoying a good book with lunch or coming together with the many clubs and groups that meet weekly at the cafe.”

The renovations don’t just end there, the drive through is getting a bit of a makeover as well; It’s great if you’re in a hurry and need to have your coffee and breakfast or lunch on the go!

 

Staff will be serving new menu items and will really focus on consistency, community and  excellent coffee, food and service.

Serious Coffee has a liquor license and will be offering up great beers and wine too. They will be hosting different events throughout the months. Some examples are plans for more live music nights, children’s tea parties, wine and paint nights, flower arranging with signature martinis, games nights, etc. The website includes an events tab that will be updated as new events are added.

Like the Shoreline team, charity is near and dear to Husby’s heart and she will be donating a portion of the money made during the grand opening on May 19th to a local charity and has committed to continue to donate locally throughout the year.
Nicole Husby and Shoreline are excited for the changes! We can’t wait to check them out and see you there  on May 19th!

Campbell River Salmon Derby 2018

We are so very excited to announce that Campbell River will be put in the spot light once again with the 3rd Annual Royal LePage Advance Realty Salmon Derby. Plans are now underway for the Salmon Derby scheduled for Saturday, June 9!

Royal LePage Advance Realty is all about giving back to the community. This event raised over $90,000 total in the past 2 years  for local charities!

Last year we gave away over $20,000 in cash and prizes. stay tuned for the 2018 prize list as well as more details here, on our facebook page and the official event page.

Shoreline Real Estate Team’s First Anniversary a Success!

What an amazing turn out! We had a lot of fun at our 1 Year Anniversary/Client Appreciation event on Thursday, February 22 at the Campbell River Golf & Country Club .

We wanted to find a way to give back a little and say ‘thank you’ to our clients for their support over the last year while we transitioned into a team and the golf course did just that with its great food and atmosphere!

We love supporting local businesses and got to do just that with some great coupons and giveaways during the night.

The evening just couldn’t have been such a huge success without the generous donations from our local friends:

Ragdolz Clothing
Sage Spa

Jill Banner-Cook and Katie Cronin- Mortgage Centre Specialist
