Getting cracking on crackers!

Posted on

It’s that time of year again! YANA’s doors are open to crafting volunteers Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10am to 2pm starting October 11 through to November 10. We have 5,000 Christmas crackers to make and we would love your help! No appointment necessary, just bring yourself and your craftiness. All supplies provided. Our office is located at 102-2456 Rosewall Crescent (Tin Town) in Courtenay.

The fall Kids’ Clutter Sale was a huge success thanks to lead coordinators, Tanya Del Bianco and Meghan Hunt, and their terrific team of volunteers and contributors including School District 71, Courtenay Elementary School, and Coastal Transportation and Storage.
