Larry Moss was awarded $1,000 to assist in the cost of creating and developing a community website to cover all aspects of Metchosin. The site is completely free and all-inclusive; there are no charges for listings or paid advertising.

The site is intended to give local residents a place to show off our beautiful and diverse community; promote their creativity, ideas and businesses; and to learn more about each other. It is a one-stop web presence to show Metchosin to the world with our stunning nature, rich history and creative community. Community involvement for content is welcomed.
