Symphony carpool

For several years a friend and I have purchased season’s tickets to the Vancouver Island Symphony concerts in the Port Theatre in Nanaimo.

For several years a friend and I have purchased season’s tickets to the Vancouver Island Symphony concerts performed in the Port Theatre in Nanaimo. We would like to continue to do so. However, as we approach our eighties neither of us truly enjoys the evening winter drives to Nanaimo.

We have therefore approached the driver of a local shuttle business in the hope that he would provide transportation to the theatre and back to Parksville after the performance and he is prepared to do that. His shuttle bus has the capacity for 12 people and we wondered if there were other seniors in the community who would like to ride along with us in comfort with no hassles regarding parking, for a truly enjoyable evening.

If so, please contact Aileen Fabris at 250-951-0324 to discuss price and a contact spot to be picked up by the driver.
