SOLD For Sale: 2 Pear Trees

I have one Comice and one d’Anjou pear tree for sale at $40 each.  Both are about 6 feet high with a 2” girth at the base of the trunk.  They need to be planted in the ground or larger pots asap before the buds break.  Both have produced pears the last two years. 

Call Rodney Badger at 246-4676 or email at .


Need Someone to Take Dog Across on Monday

I am wondering if there might be someone who would be able to walk (or take in vehicle) Sara, my older & very mellow dog, over on the 8:05 ferry to Chemainus or the 1:50 ferry back to Thetis on this coming Monday, the 20th. Ernie will be at the ferry on Thetis and my mom on the Chemainus side, so it will just be a hand off. She has a vet appointment.

Thank you, Michelle
