Parksville Qualicum REALTORS® donated $500 to the Parkville Lions Club Sunday, March 3 to help fund its successful Family Skate Program. The money will be used to purchase new skate aides for beginners (the red and blue items) to the sport like the trio illustrated in the accompanying photograph. Taking part in the presentation were (left to right) Don Gamble, Chair of the Family Skate Program, REALTOR® Margo Hoffman, Gail Vuillamy, Lions 1st Vice President and Lions President (and REALTOR®) Jim Hoffman.
