New info signs for Qualicum Beach

A crowd of some 25 supporters gathered to witness the unveiling on Monday

The Chamber of Commerce of Qualicum Beach unveiled its new information signs on Highway 4 on Monday afternoon.

A crowd of some 25 supporters gathered to witness Oura Giakoumakis, chair of the chamber, and Mayor Tuenis Westbroek welcome the community and admire the new additions to the highway pull-out.

“This is the second phase of a two phase project that started back in early 2014, when it became obvious to staff and Chamber Board that maps throughout the Town needed updating,” said Giakoumakis. “The new maps will act as a way-finder for our 25,000-plus visitors who stop in throughout the year.”

“This photo collage on panel one is the result of many generous community members and organizations contributing their photos. I would like to formally thank the Parksville Qualicum Beach Tourist Association, Horne Lake Caves, the Qualicum Beach Museum, Milner Gardens, Linda Matteson-Reynolds and Rusty Joerin from Woodsgift Enterprises.”
