Hear from our Members...

At 59, newly retired, and recently moved to Sooke, I seek new challenges. I tried rowing for the first time with Sooke’s longboat group. I discovered a wonderful activity out of my comfort zone with the help of a welcoming group. It is what I was looking for."
- Paola

Remembering Judy Gilligan

The Society will forever be in Judy’s debt. It’s hard to sum up all the wonderful things she did and all the good times we had! Judy was a community builder and a good friend. Read more about Judy here.
