“We cherish and value our readers and this is a chance to meet and greet them, in true Oak Bay fashion, with tea and treats,” said publisher Janet Gairdner. “We work hard to serve the residents of Oak Bay and we also wouldn’t exist without the best community readership in Greater Victoria.”

It’s also a chance for readers to bring their story ideas and to share what’s happening with fellow residents.

Expert tea pourer Coun. Hazel Braithwaite is a regular attendant.

“Having a local newspaper is extremely important and valuable to our community,” Braithwaite said. “It keeps us in touch with all of the going’s on in our district – both community events and municipal matters.

“As community members I encourage everyone to support our local newspaper,” Braithwaite added.

Please visit us to share time with us as together, we are the community of Oak Bay.

See you on the 17th!
