We have lived in our Brando home now for one year and, in the rare instances where there have been concerns, they have been dealt with quickly, professionally and to our 100-per-cent satisfaction. Brandon even stopped by to give us a Christmas card! We love our Brando home in Lancaster Heights and would highly recommend this company to anyone in the market for a new home.The Black Swan Fiddlers want to thank all those who supported our fiddling efforts to raise funds for the Japanese earthquake victims.  We were successful in raising $306 for the Japanese Red Cross. If you missed us at the Zocalo Café, then you can hear us again this Saturday at the Farmers’ Market. Music starts at 9:30 a.m. People still have an opportunity to donate to the Japanese earthquake victims at the “Red Cross For Japan Fundraiser” at the Courtenay Legion on Friday April 8.  Our own Comox Valley Fiddlejam plays from 3:45 – 4:15.
