Oceanside Welcome Wagon Welcome Wagon has been providing Newcomers with a welcome basket across Canada for more than 85 years. The “Welcome Wagon” idea originates from pioneer days in the prairies when residents came out and welcomed newly arrived families.
The Parksville Newcomers Club works with the Oceanside Welcome Wagon to provide a basket full of greetings, gifts and information to Newcomers to the Oceanside area. In addition to lots of community information, the basket has hundreds of dollars in free gifts and discounts from local merchants. If you are interested in receiving a basket please contact Pat Famulak at our monthly meetings, call her 250-248-7119 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
