Apologies – Phone Disruption at Our Community Office

December 19th, 2012

The voice mail system at the VWTH Community Office has been having problems since last week.  People calling from outside are unable to get through to the extensions if the receptionist is not there to pick up, and the mail box does not accept any voice mails.  Our technician has been trying to fix it, he is expected to arrive with a new system today and hopefully everything will be back to normal soon. Many thanks for your patience – in the meantime email is the best way to reach us

Feel good about giving this holiday season

In my experience, the best gifts are the ones you secretly wish to keep for yourself… and this calendar is certainly worthy of buying an extra!


This 2013 Art Calendar is available for $20.00 from the community office. The artist, Suzanne Heron has graciously donated $12 from the sale of each calendar to the Victoria Women’s Transition House.


With her stunning mastery of digital painting , Heron has captured the best of Vancouver Island in a calendar. Designed to illustrate a one-day Tour of Vancouver Island, she captures the natural beauty of our diverse landscape, highlights our favorite landmarks and shares the secrets to colorful local cuisine.


A few of my favorite paintings are above.


This is the perfect gift for someone who already appreciates the rich culture and landscape of Vancouver Island or for someone abroad you would like to share the Pacific Marine Coastal Tour with.


You can feel good about giving this as a gift this Holiday Season!
