Canim Lake Band volunteers hosting a bazaar Dec. 3

Revenue helps ensure children get a special gift on Christmas morning

By Melissa Smalley

Vendors are being sought for the Canim Lake Band’s Third Annual Christmas Bazaar set to take place next month.

The Dec. 3 bazaar will be held between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. at the Canim Lake Band Gymnasium – off Canim-Hendrix Road and Charley Way – and will feature new and used merchandise, handmade Christmas crafts and an array of home-baked goodies.

Last year’s event drew more than a dozen vendors, organizer Chantil Frank tells the 100 Mile House Free Press, noting the band is hoping for even more participants for this year’s event.

The bazaar raises money for the Canim Lake Band Children’s Christmas Fund, which helps to ensure little ones in the community have a special gift come Christmas morning.

“Each year a group of community members volunteer their time to fundraise money to purchase gifts for the children in our community,” Frank says, adding that little ones aged newborn to 18 years receive presents.

“Last year, we purchased up to 125 gifts.”

Vendor tables are available for $15 each and can be booked by calling Frank during business hours at 250-397-2227.
