Week 2
There’s Just So Much to Do!

Where is the time going? We’re already 2 weeks in and PNO is this Saturday night. Time sure flies when you’re having fun at CBSC.

In case you haven’t heard, we had a feel-good story this week at CB. On Tuesday, a seal pup rescue happened on the beach. CBSC lifeguards, coaches and members quick action helped keep it safe and the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Mammal Rescue Team took over to rescue the pup.

Many people stepped in, but special thanks to Sally, Josh and Pilar who watched over the pup ‘til the rescue team arrived. All in a day’s work here at CBSC.

He’s been named Fitz Island and you can follow his progress here.
