A very Happy St Patrick's Day to you! We hope you enjoy a fun night at home with your families.

Want to enjoy a green beer at home? Add 3-5 drops of green food dye to a pint of your favourite pilsner or pale ale. Adding it to the bottom of the glass before pouring allows it to mix as you pour.

Happy Argyle Day 2020

Happy Argyle Day. Its kind of a big thing with Dawn if you hadn't noticed. She has been sporting the vibrant argyle vests for years and today it is officially ARGYLE DAY so who better than Dawn Walton & Associates to wish you a very happy argyle day!

The argyle pattern comes from the tartan of Clan Campbell, which originated in Argyll in western Scotland. While this pattern was used by members of Clan Campbell for kilts and plaids, the argyle pattern has been worn in the form of patterned socks by various clans in Scotland from the 17th century.

2019 Pumpkin Patch - Thank You !

Thank you to all of this year's sponsors, volunteers and to all those that attended the 2019 North Nanaimo Pumpkin Patch!

It was another great year with a load of pumpkins to choose from, hot chocolate, treats, games, family photos and face painting and we couldn't do it all without the help from our sponsors, volunteers and all those that join in the fun with their donations for these two very worthy causes. $2586 was raised for KidSport Nanaimo and the VIU Athletic Bursary in memory of our friend, Erica Murphy.
