The Bowen Island Undercurrent and Bowen Coffee are pleased to announce that Ginger Erskine has won the draw for a $50 gift card to be redeemed at Bowen Coffee.
Erskine was excited to be the winner. She said, "I've never won anything. And I might get my husband a latte this morning." She explained that her husband is a teacher at IPS and has to complete work on report cards.
Erskine's name was drawn from a number of participants who had filled out an online questionnaire to let us know what readers are looking for when they get the Undercurrent.
"I like to look at the letters to the editor," Erskine said. "I have lived on Bowen Island for two years and I recognize many names." Before moving here, Erskine lived in New Westminster, a community that is much bigger and where she didn't necessarily see familiar names in the paper.
Erskine also said that she loves Ron Woodall's cartoons and regularly checks the calendar of events. She has worked at the Coastal Patterns Gallery and the Gym and likes to find out what is happening on Bowen. Erskine added that "the coverage at election time was super helpful."
Erskine is an artist and also works as a graphic designer. She does look at the display ads because she is interested in what businesses and organization on the island are doing. She also reads the unclassifieds Bowen's own section on the classified pages.
Erskine loves the selection at Bowen Coffee where she can get coffees, tees, mugs and even shirts. Congratulations and thanks for paticipating in the draw!
