The first edition of a new quarterly magazine called Oasis is now available throughout the Parksville Qualicum Beach region.

There’s a bright, new publication circulating throughout our region, an Oasis for everyone to enjoy.

Oasis Magazine’s first edition is now available inside today’s Parksville Qualicum Beach News in the Parksville Qualicum Beach area, and is available throughout Parksville, Qualicum Beach, Nanoose Bay, Arrowsmith and Lighthouse Country (a full list of locations where you can pick up the free magazine will be in Tuesday’s edition of The NEWS).

This quarterly magazine — the next edition hits the streets in September — provides a glossy, colourful look at the people and places of this region.

“Our staff has worked tirelessly on this project and we’re quite pleased with how it’s turned out,” said Publisher Peter McCully. “We are also delighted to have the support of so many businesses in the region and we’re happy to provide a different vehicle for them to reach their customers.”

Oasis editor Lissa Alexander — coupled with the design skills of Leigh Craig — have assembled and displayed the work of some of the best writers and photographers of Parksville Qualicum Beach to put together a professional, entertaining product.

“We are very excited to feature the region’s best talent,” said Alexander. “We believe readers will enjoy the stories and photos they provide of the quirky, interesting, colourful people and places of the area, especially in this glossy, full-colour format.”

This first edition of Oasis, for example, features stories about sailing, Milner Gardens, local food, a renowned carver and much more.
