While usually Bowen Island Integrated Health looks after people, next week it’ll be looking after something else entirely: Halloween spirit.
With so many regular Halloween activities modified due to the pandemic, BIIC is starting up its own pumpkin carving contest. (Sarah Haxby’s usual contest out of Deep Bay isn’t happening this year.)
Those wishing to participate in Carve up the Cove are to drop off their pumpkins between Oct. 26 and 30 at the clinic, which is below the pharmacy. BIIC will post photos on its Facebook page and islanders will vote virtually.
“Stop by Halloween night to light your pumpkin and receive a spooky grab bag,” says the poster.
As there are several age groups, anyone can enter. “Even if your little ghoul isn’t ready to do their own carving yet, they can paint or design it and have someone else do the slicing and dicing,” it says.
There will be prizes from BIIC and other community organizations. For more information, visit bowenislandhealth.com.
