Lighthouse ready to attract families on mom’s day

Mother’s Day event at Lighthouse Community Centre in Qualicum Bay set for May 13

Anyone looking for a treat for mom on Mother’s Day on May 13 has to look no further than the Lighthouse Community Centre in Qualicum Bay.

Lois Nelson is one of the organizers of this year’s Mother’s Day pancake breakfast, which runs from 8 a.m. to noon at the centre, which will feature breakfast served by the Qualicum Bay Lions Club, a live dove release, Community Club hanging basket sale, poultry swap and flea market.

The event will also include musical entertainment, featuring the Island Gospel Singers, Pat and Jamie, Peter Mason and Friends and foot-tapping bluegrass music performed by members of the the Mid-Island Bluegrass Society.

“We get the place rocking when the bands are on,” Nelson said.


“It’s going to be a really good day.”
