June 2024

This is my favourite time of year. With the start of summer with its fresh green growth everywhere, this is an excellent time to explore your community. So put on your coolest shades, grab your water bottle and let’s play “Hometown Tourist”.
For 13 years, TAKE 5 has spearheaded the Be a Hometown Tourist campaign, working with local businesses and community groups to bring you events and specials to encourage residents to discover why visitors love it here. It’s not surprising, when you consider charming downtowns, small shops, great markets, lovely parks, and a fantastic coastline. We have friendly folk who give their time to make things happen, along with specials such as golfing and kayaking. In addition to the specials, there are several free events happening on June 15 and 16, including an Open Mic “Music Off the Dock” at Ladysmith Museum, an Open House at Ladysmith Little Theatre and B.C.’s Family Fishing Weekend at Bush Creek Hatchery.
Also, in this issue, we put a spin on the world of e-bikes and check out what’s happening in and around town. Remember to pick up or view online the 2024 Explore Guide for Ladysmith, Cedar, Saltair and Chemainus for suggestions that will keep you discovering our communities year-round.
In closing I’d like to say thank you as we celebrate another year of independent publishing at TAKE 5. This issue marks the 28th anniversary of TAKE 5. Thank you to our readers and advertisers for bringing a little TAKE 5 into your world every month.
