Fifth annual estuary carol walk set for Sunday

The fifth annual Comox Valley Estuary Carol walk begins at 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 6 at Mansfield Drive parking lot (behind Serious Coffee at 26th). Carollers may also join at the airpark parking lot.

In addition to the Airpark and Riverway carol walkers, Captain Dan Clair of Comox Harbour Charters takes carollers ($30) on his decorated boat. (250-218-9146). They depart from Comox Harbour and will meet near the government dock, tides permitting. For carollers with limited mobility, it’s a good way to participate.

Joanna Finch is carol leader. She has prepared an online carol booklet that may be downloaded from the Project Watershed web page (www.projectwatershed.ca).  Children and dogs welcome. Bring a flashlight or headlamp if possible.

St. John Society volunteers will patrol.

On behalf of Project Watershed, Betty Donaldson organizes the volunteer team. It isn’t a fundraiser and registration isn’t necessary. The purpose is to enjoy making joyful sounds in this outdoor environment while continuing the tradition of holiday singalongs. For more information, contact the PW office (250-703-2871).
