Holiday Events 2018

We had such a fantastic response to our Summer Calendar that we figured we would put together a Holiday one too!

On the Event poster you will find as many events as we could find – we even put a call out to you to make sure we didn’t miss a thing – to take you through the 2018 holiday season in and around Campbell River!

Because there was just SO much going on in this great city we call home, we had to keep the information as simple as possible and we still have 3 pages! You will see what the event is, the date and time it’s happening and a link for you to punch into your device of choice to find all the little details.

We hope you find this helpful and fun to print off and have in your home! Leave us a comment so we can find out if this is something you’d like us to continue or if there is anything different you’d like to see.

See you all out there!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

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
Gathering Place Trading company 
Jill Banner-Cook and Katie Cronin- Mortgage Centre Specialist

Let Us Introduce You To…Holly Hill Farm!

It’s Tuesday Folks and that can only mean one thing…It’s Local Feature Tuesdays!

We are so pleased to feature Holly Hill Farm as our local business this week. It is a beautiful and ever expanding family run farm and absolutely worth a visit. Here is a little bit more about the farm from owner/operator Katie Denne.

Holly Hill Farm is an up and coming farm owned by Katie and Kyle Denne. They bought the farm from Katie’s grandparents who were long residence of Campbell River: Mary & Danny McKenzie. The farm currently runs a weekly egg program that delivers fresh, free-range, eggs to 10 families. They also sell eggs at their farm gate when there is a surplus. The farm is a 16 acre parcel that has hopes of supplying Campbell River with fresh, local meats, fruits & veggies raised & grown in a healthy, happy way.

The farm is also a wonderful place to hold a child’s birthday party where the kids are able to visit with the alpacas, chickens, mini donkeys, and Snickers, who is pictured in the photo.

The farm has hosted many families as a photoshoot location, and recently hosted a bride & groom on their special day.
