Strawberry Tea & Fashion Show

The weather was near perfect, for the 2012 Hornby Island Preschool Strawberry Tea and Fashion Show. This year's annual event held again through the generosity of the Bishop Family at the Sea Breeze Resort highlighted clothes from Fibres, hand spun, dyed and knit fashions by Vera of Mermaid Designs and amazing wearable felted art by Mya (of the Old Rose Nursery).

Here we have Tyler & Alex modeling clothes from Fibres.

The finale is a time honoured tradition with the Hornby graduating students, showing off their wonderful dresses and suits.  Nearly all of these students were one time preschool students.  Oh how time flies!

Ringside Changes - The Gas Bar Building is moved!

The Gas Bar Building moves and opens up the Ringside Market 
With the help of many it is moved uneventfully!
It is now situated where the propane tank was.  This is going to be a nice change for the Ringside.  It opens up for more green space
