Metal Recycling at Kus-kus-sum

In the spirit of summer fun, Project Watershed is holding a contest to see who can guess the number of full bins of metal that will come of the site. If you want to take a stab at estimating, email Caila.Holbrook@projectwatershed.ca, or post your guess to Instagram or Facebook with #metalrecycling and #kuskussum, by Friday June 23rd. The closest three guesses will win a $25 gift certificate from the Peninsula Co-op. If there are more than three correct guesses we will draw three names from those who have guessed correctly.

BUS STORY

I gave up owning a car the moment I retired. Why not! There was a bus stop right outside the front gate, and another just across the road. For seven years all I had to do was to battle the regional district to deal with the water-logged gullies and the erosion of the grass between the pull-off and the ditch between our fence and the actual stop.

Roxanne’s Story

When I was living in Victoria I had acquaintances who regularly drove to Fanny Bay to dine at the Fanny Bay Inn or ‘FBI’ – that’s what the locals call their pub. Little did I know that soon I would be hanging out in this cozy place, too, because Life had moved me to Fanny Bay.
