• Christmas Toy Runs 2011

      It's soon that time of the year again ... Christmas. And while we all begin to make preparations for our own friends and families, we sometimes forget others less fortunate. This year, we want to let you know about three (3) Toy Runs that are happening in the Lower Mainland. We hope that everyone will take the time to participate in one or both.

      1. Quads.ca 5th-Annual Christmas Toy Drive

      Event Date: Saturday, November 5th, 2011
      Meet Time: 9am but coffee will be on at 5:30am
      Meet Location: North end of Gill Road in Chilliwack

      Look for the Quads.ca banner. The guys from the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau will be on site, with their quads. There will be a silent auction as well, with all proceeds to the LMCB. Lunch and refreshments are provided - pulled pork sandwiches cooked in root beer, and a big pot of chili.
