Salmon Derby Logo - Copy

We are busy preparing for the June 11th Salmon Derby!  I am so excited to see this event come to life!  It’s been a topic of conversation around the office for years and I am thrilled we have made it a reality!   We have over $20,000 in cash and prizes including a $5000 top cash prize.  With so many donations we have decided to have a silent auction the day of at our headquarters Robert Ostler Park ( the foreshore)

All the details at www.crsalmonderby.com

Find the event on facebook by searching Royal LePage Salmon Derby

Buy your $40 ticket online or at our front desk.  Proceeds will be going to our local Women’s Shelter and the C.R Salmon Foundation.

We already have big plans for next year! I would love to see a catch and release category and turn this into a 2 day event with beer gardens and maybe a live music/dance one of the nights.  Campbell River deserves an event like this!

Deanna’s 10 Days of Giveaways ~ DAY 6 Holly Hill Farm

 

On the 6th Day my favorite farmers over at Holly Hill Farm are gifting one of you lucky followers a family barnyard tour complete with horse rides (for the Spring of 2016).

Holly Hill Farm is an authentic family farm ran by Katie and Kyle Denne. It is located in the heart of Campbell River, on Canada’s beautiful Vancouver Island. The farm is home to a diverse range of animals and 16 acres of stretching farmland.

In just a few short years they have grown this property into a multifaceted farm, offering  guests educational farm tours and horseback rides. Birthday parties, fields trips and summer kids camps too!  Campbell River is fortunate to have Holly Hill Farm also supplying the community with healthy free-range meats, eggs, and fibre raised ethically and naturally.

I have had the pleasure of visiting for a few birthdays and this year’s Easter Event with my daughter who by the way speaks about Katie at least once a week.  She truly thinks Katie is the coolest farmer out there and wants to have a farm just like her one day!  Katie really is a natural when it comes to showing the kids around and teaching them about the farm.  I look forward to watching this farm grow and the community benefit from it. More details about all they offer here http://hollyhillfarmcampbellriver.com/

Day 4 DUDAR DESIGNS 3 Hour Consult and Design Draft for a small reno

WOW!!! DAY 4 is a dream! Karlene of Dudar Designs is giving 1 lucky winner a 3 hour consult and design draft for a small reno!  That dream walk in closet ? New bathroom?  Laundry room revamp?

ENTER TO WIN THIS FABULOUS PRIZE From Karlene at Dudar Designs here <a href=”http://a Rafflecopter giveaway“>

Born and raised in Campbell River Karlene eats, breathes and sleeps design!   Her favorite saying is ” GOOD DESIGN ON A DIME”

Karlene works full time with a Developer designing custom homes, but still makes time for smaller jobs, renovations and even commercial design.  She is currently wrapping up “her absolute most favorite project” – Sage Spa’s new space on the South Island Hwy in Campbell River.

I have personally witnessed Karlene walk into a house under construction and just start listing off colour concepts, little tweaks and ideas and watched the clients relax, nod and agree with all her ideas!  She has a confident coolness about her.   I’ve had her come to my own 1980s built house and give me great ideas how to update it on a dime! I am always in awe how she can look at a wall and blurt out the exact colour it should be painted.  2 times I didn’t listen and I chose a different shade of white and a lighter shade of grey than she had recommended.  2 times I regretted my wall colours after painting!  With a gazillion shades of white and too many colours out there to choose from don’t we all sometimes just want to put the paint chips down and have an expert come along and tell us ” you need to paint it …. this colour” DONE!!!

Be sure to follow Dudar Designs on facebook so that you can see upcoming photos of her work with Sage Spa!
