Join Mayor Nels Jensen on the Oak Bay Tourism/Community Associated sponsored Pop Up Tourism Kiosk. Your Community Association wants you to participate bring your bicycles, wagons, or even just your feet. We would love to see lots of members out to have fun, and which will of course will draw new members. And you know how that works…the more, the merrier!
We are going to keep it simple again this year, with a no-emissions float…okay, small exception…we are keeping up the tradition of candies distributed by the mayor and riders! We ride our bikes or walk together, we laugh, we carry our banner and we have a great time, all while raising our community profile.
If you can join us, please RSVP to email@example.com and meet beside Windsor Park Pavilion between 9:30 and 10:00AM on Saturday morning.
The Annual Tea Party Parade is an Oak Bay tradition. If you’re just out to watch, it begins on Saturday at 10:30AM from Windsor Park. The 45 minute parade winds through the streets of Oak Bay, ending at Willows Beach Park.
Thefts from Motor Vehicles
There were a rash of thefts from motor vehicles overnight last night. The vehicles were all unlocked, some parked in driveways, others on the road. Areas of thefts were Brighton Street, Windsor Road, St. Patrick St, Clive Drive and the 1500 Block of Beach Drive. Two bikes were stolen from a home where a vehicle was entered, so it’s likely the culprits are on bicycles.
Please ensure your vehicle is locked and suspicious activity is reported.
Please fan out.

Pop-Up Tourism Kiosk comes to Oak Bay
Who sells food to feed the seals? What is that mountain range across the water? Where do I go find a great local coffee shop? When do the night markets begin? Why are there logs along the beachfront? Where did the first nation’s people settle? What is a Garry Oak? Where is the closest washroom? Want answers to these and many other questions you might have when visiting Oak Bay, one of Greater Victoria’s 13 municipalities? Tourism Oak Bay and the Community Association of Oak Bay have collaborated in creating an ingenious method of finding answers to the above questions, and many more. Information about this most scenic region of southern Vancouver Island will be found on a bike driven, trailer pulling, Pop-Up mobile tourist information centre and bicycle emergency repair centre. The bike and trailer will provide up to the minute municipal tourist information. Community gatherings, from the University of Victoria to Gonzales Beach, from Mount Tolmie to the Oak Bay Marina will benefit with this movable info centre. The Kiosk will have a tablet computer to help answer questions about our community. The Oak Bay Community Green Map will be available on board! Cycling through Oak Bay along the very scenic Beach Drive is a year round activity and one in which will benefit greatly with the pop-up tourist info centre.
If you can spare a couple of hours on the weekend to promote Oak Bay contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Training will be provided.
This is an interesting presentation by Councillor Pam Copley presented to the Rotary Club of Oak Bay. I thought it would be useful to provide additional background information to the membership.

Thanks to everyone who attended and especially members of the Friends of Uplands Park and Community Association of Oak Bay who co-hosted the event. See you next year!
