Coming Events

 

 

 

Our next show is another riotous comedy "Present Laughter" by Noel Coward.

And we will begin building a lovely set of an upper class English apartment (flat) beginning at the start of March. The show opens on April 3.

We are in need of handymen and women to assist in building the set, painting set pieces, and so on. If you are handy with a hammer and saw - we have a fully equipped shop in the theatre and can use your help. We have some retired architects, builders and just general handy people who all enjoy getting together to create a magical world for the audiences to experience. So if you are a builder or painter with time on your hands or have retired and want to keep a bit busy we can use whatever time you can spare. If your talent with tools or paint brushes be big or small, it does not matter - everyone is welcome and we will find something for you to do. This is a very social club and those involved very much enjoy the company of each other and usually end up becoming fast friends. We are a non profit group. Every penny we make goes back into the theatre to produce upcoming shows or improve and upkeep the building, which is the Coast Capital Playhouse on Johnson Road. We have various social events during the course of the year which are a lot of fun. Aside from set builders we are always looking for people interested in all aspects of the theatre, from costumes, to props, to sound to lighting and of course acting. And there are several volunteers who are happy to train new people in an area they might be interested in. So - if you would like more information and think you might like to join our happy little group, please contact me via messenger or by email to whiterock1953@gmail.com. Have a lovely day...Susanne

"George Garrett is one of the most remarkable reporters of news that I have ever known.

He has always had the ability to smell a good story and to report on it honestly and accurately."

--Jim Pattison, Canadian business magnate

Starting from humble beginnings as a farm boy in Saskatchewan, George Garrett rose through the ranks of journalism and came to be known as the reporter who, as radio personality Rafe Mair recalled, "seemed to know details almost as soon as the police did" on such infamous stories as the Clifford Olson murders. He was willing to take risks to get to the real story, which resulted in his being assaulted in the Rodney King riots in Los Angeles among many other scrapes. In this memoir, Garrett shares the behind-the-scenes tales of his harrowing, humorous and occasionally humiliating investigative tactics, from posing as an accident victim to uncover the questionable practices of an insurance claim lawyer, to acting as a tow truck driver to expose a forgery scheme, and baring it all for the sake of an interview with a local nudist colony.

Garrett also delves into the personal details of his life, sharing the hardships and resilience that marks him as an empathetic storyteller. He reveals the heartbreaking loss of his son in a canoeing accident, and his wife Joan's devastating diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease which inspired him to dedicate his time to supporting the Alzheimer Society.

Through it all, George Garrett never lost the insatiable curiosity that, according to Rafe Mair, made him the "standard by which good reporting is judged."

 

 

Did you know the Ocean Park Community Association has served the Ocean Park Community since 1925? And that we are one of only a few community associations left? You bet!

The board of the OPCA maintains the Ocean Park Hall (yes, that hall is community owned and operated), and serves the Ocean Park community through events, like; the Annual Halloween Parade, the Winter Wonderland event at the Hall, the Amazing Race in Ocean Park Village, the Annual Easter Egg Hunt, Invasive species removal work parties at Fun Fun Park and Kwomais Park, the Annual Heritage Tea, Coffee with a Cop and Blockwatch Open House - and the list goes on!

We also beautify the Village with Christmas lights, spring planters, and banners. 

We run this Facebook page and the oceanparkvillage.com website.

We manage the OPCA Youth Team and look for opportunities where they can contribute to the community.

We work on heritage projects. 

And, we also provide two high school students with bursaries each year.

It's a lot of work, for a small board - but we all LOVE what we do. 

Why are we sharing this with you today? Because our annual membership fees are due for renewal in January of each year and we are currently seeing the lowest membership rates ever. The membership fee is $25 annually and those funds help us to do all that we do.

If you would like to sign up, and support your community association, you can do so on our website at: oceanparkvillage.com

You will receive a monthly eblast directly in your inbox letting you know what the OPCA is working on, and what is going on in Ocean Park. You will also receive a 15% discount on renting the Ocean Park Hall. But most importantly, you will support YOUR community association.
