Christmas Celebration

 Our Christmas celebration will be on Monday, December 6th at 7:00 p.m. on Zoom.  Please join us for a presentation by Jennifer Lasko from ‘Mod-Pots’ on ‘Wreath and Matching Front Door Decorating’.  Please mark this date on your calendar.  We look forward to “getting together” before the holidays and providing some inspiration with decorating ideas.

With deep regret, we would like to inform you of the passing of two of our long-time members in 2021.

Both gentleman passed away of cancer.

Our sincerest sympathies are offered to the Bombezin and Cottell families.

Marcel Bombezin January 31, 1936-June 14, 2021

Marcel was a kind, friendly, generous, “always smiling” active member of our club. He volunteered for years at the Plant Sale Table during our garden club meetings along side his good friends Floyd, Jean and Aase.

Twice a year his helping hand was happily offered to assist at both annual Spring and Fall Plant sales going on 20 years now.

Born in Houilles-France, he moved to Victoria at the age of 18 and soon found work at the shipyards in the pipe shop. He could fix anything! He was a talented sketch artist, painter, gardener and woodworker. Loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He loved his family deeply and will be greatly missed by them, his friends and the Victoria-Qualicum communities.

Phil Cottell 1941-2021

Long-time member and husband of Donna Cottell.

He was born in Ladysmith, enjoyed a varied forestry career until he retired and lived in many different areas.

He was a skilled woodturner participating in many different art shows, volunteering at Artsea, selling his works at various galleries as well as teaching and writing articles in woodturners magazines/ we will always remember his friendly and pleasant disposition when attending all Peninsula Garden Club meeting and activities.

The extended community will miss this kind, helpful and supportive well-loved man.
