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

What’s Going On In August!!

How is it August already?? We have been making the most of summer with camping trips, beach and river days and lots of outdoor time. We hope you’ve been enjoying lots of adventures, fun and time with the kiddos.

There are just a few weeks left before the kids head back to school and we’re sharing a few more events coming up in August that really cater to everyone. Check out some of them below.


First up is the Filberg Festival which takes place at Filberg Park in Comox July 31- August 3. The Filberg Fest offers tons of vendors, art, music and entertainment and great eats. There is even something for the kids with a petting zoo, crafts, entertainment and yummy treats. Sam’s favourite part of Filberg is just the sheer volume of local goodies and the fresh squeezed lemonade ( A MUST!). Here is the website for more information:

CR Salmon Fest LogoThe next event to add to your calendar is the 48th Annual CR Salmon Festival and Loggers Sports. This event is held August 7-9 at Nunns Creek Park and there is truly something for the whole family. Besides the traditional Logger Sport events, there is live entertainment, local vendors and a BEER GARDEN. There is also a bunch of great things happening for the kids with bouncy houses, face painting, games and entertainment. Click here to check out a video: and the website here:

Comox Valley Air ShowEvery two years the Comox Air Base hosts the Comox Air Show which will be on August 15. The gates open at 9 am and there is a shuttle bus running all day from North Island College in Comox. Bring a chair and a picnic or indulge in one of the many food trucks on site while watching different aerial performances all throughout the day. There will also be lots of planes and helicopters to actually walk around and tour. To find tickets and more information, check out the website here:

Is there something we missed that you think people should know about? Make sure to let us know about an upcoming event this August and we’ll make sure to share.

Deanna’s Client Appreciation Day!

On May 30, 2015 we had the pleasure of hosting an event at the Discovery Passage Aquarium. Deanna’s Client Appreciation Day was an afternoon to thank Deanna’s current and repeat clients as well as those who have been kind enough to refer Deanna to friends and family.

The afternoon was held both inside and outside of the aquarium and the weather was just perfect. We invited families to come and explore the aquarium and then enjoy some games and arts and crafts. Have you been to our local aquarium yet? It’s a great place to spend some time exploring the marine life on our coast. And for the little ones, there is a large touch tank, where the kids can get a real “hands on” education!

Deb Cowper and her team at Discovery Passage Aquarium were beyond amazing when it came to treating Deanna’s clients to a fun day! They provided fabulous prizes and awesome interactive games and arts and crafts. We would highly recommend working with them to host an event again!

Here is a snapshot of the day:
