About us

WhoTotems Are We ?

We are a Social Group consisting of individuals (singles and couples) who have moved here from far away, or just around the corner – or who have been here all along.

Our aim is to give members the opportunity to expand their social life, meet new people, join and learn new activities, and explore the Cowichan Valley (and beyond) regardless of whether they are working, semi-retired or retired.

What do we do ?

Monthly events provide opportunities to socialize with other Newcomers. Usually they take place in the Cowichan Valley; sometimes we venture further afield. 

There is a variety of activities such as Book Clubs, a Knitting Group, a Writing Group, a Monthly TGIF, Hiking, Biking, Card Games, a Dinner Group, a Tasting Group, Arts and Crafts groups, Lunching Out and much more.  We are always interested in new ideas you might wish to add.

What do we Offer?

We provide a friendly, comfortable and welcoming environment for everyone at all of our functions. A monthly newsletter that outlines the planned events, current activities, and contact information is emailed to members each month.
