May 2nd, 2024 the Critical Distance experience came to Pender.  It was an opportunity to virtually swim with the whales. We saw and heard them, as they swam all around us, hunting for salmon.   Kayaks passed overhead and then a huge container ships churned above.  

It was a holographic adventure in a 3D underwater world.

 

90 Penderites came through the Hall, taking turns  to enjoy this technically creative visual feast. 

A huge thank you to Simres for organizing this.

The Pender Island Conservancy (PICA) celebrated Earth Day with a well-attended beach clean-up.  PenderPod was at the drop-off point with a display and information table. PICA did such an incredible event, complete with music, food, and good cheer.  The Pender Pod banner was flying high while we danced up a storm.
