The auction will be titled “Victoria (British Columbia, Canada) PARTNER MANAGED Charity/Fundraising Online Auction for PLDCA – Sparton Road”

Successful bidders will receive instructions for pickup on Saturday, April 20 at the Prospect Lake Hall (5358 Sparton Road).
Art at the Lake is made possible by the generous involvement of Steptoe Services, their partners at Maxsold, a wonderful group of volunteers, and most importantly all of those who generously donated their art!

This is a fundraiser for the Prospect Lake District Community Association, a non-profit charity, for the improvement of the heritage Prospect Lake Hall in the heart of the Saanich Peninsula. The Prospect Lake Hall is one of the few community owned and maintained halls left in BC. All profits from the event go directly to the PLDCA.

We Are the PLDCA

Our vision and mission were determined through community input.

  • Encouraging discussion on local issues
  • Traffic

The Prospect Lake District Community and the Community hall lay in the traditional territories of the Lekwungen peoples. We acknowledge with deep respect that we are visitors on these lands, and that the historical relationship of the W̱SÁNEĆ peoples continues to this day. We strongly encourage those who live, work, visit and recreate in the territory acknowledge the homelands of Indigenous nations we experience and occupy and to learn further about your relationship as a visitor to the traditional territories of the nations you reside upon.

The W̱SÁNEĆ People are Salt Water People. Traditionally the W̱SÁNEĆ People had homes throughout the San Juan Islands and on the east and north coasts of the Saanich Peninsula.
Their land went east through the Gulf Islands and San Juan Islands and northeast across Georgia Strait to Boundary Bay. Their territory included the Saanich Inlet and deep into the forest lands on its west side. On the Saanich Peninsula itself, and went south as far as PKOLS (Mount Douglas), and from there across to W̱QENNELEȽ (Mt. Finlayson) and SELE₭TEȽ (Goldstream). W̱SÁNEĆ (Saanich Peninsula) was the headquarters because this is where the W̱SÁNEĆ People built their permanent winter homes.
