Letter: Oak Bay comes together for Queen’s celebration

I would like to thank our community for really stepping up and helping with the Celebration of the Queen’s Reign events

I would like to thank our community for really stepping up and helping with the Celebration of the Queen’s Reign events – we are truly so very fortunate to have such wonderful, civic-minded businesses and organizations within Oak Bay.

Thanks must go to Oak Bay United Church for lending us the tea cups (very important for this event!!), Oak Bay Flowers for the lovely table arrangements, Thrifty Foods Fairfield for their huge generosity with sandwiches etc., Oak Bay High School for finding us a throne for our “Queen,” The Monarchist League – Victoria Branch, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Association of Canada, Vancouver Island and Islands Section for – you guessed it – the corgis (but sadly we do not get to keep them!), the Oak Bay BIA for their planning help, Tetley Tea for the other main component of our event, the Girl Guides for helping to serve the tea, Oak Bay News for the wonderful coverage, Oak Bay Heritage and Archives, and of course, the Oak Bay staff who have helped every step of the way to ensure our residents have the best events put on in the region! (I believe we are the only municipality that did two events!)

Coun. Hazel Braithwaite,

District of Oak Bay
