HOSPITAL DAY

Probably the most notable event of the year, Hospital Day has a long history originating in 1908 to raise money to build our first hospital.

Today all funds are used to support the hospital contributing such necessary items as birthing beds, physiotherapy equipment and monitors.

Though over the years the activities have changed the day always begins with a parade through town to the Community Grounds and follows with games and entertainment for everyone: the VIP dunk tank, shopping cart races, marathon races and the gum boot toss as well as an auction and food booths are favourite features. A dance with live music in the Community Hall ends the day of festivities. Hospital Day is held on the Saturday closest to June 21 each year.

HALLOWEEN

CHILDREN'S PARTY
A children's party sponsored by the Queen Charlotte Child Centre members with costume judging, games, prized and treats are the highlight of the Halloween celebration for the younger children of the community.

HALLOWEEN DANCE

An evening of dancing with such an incredible array of costumes that the judges have a difficult time choosing the "best" costumes in each category. The Community Hall is always filled to capacity for this annual fund raiser for the Volunteer Fire Department and Community Club.

CHRISTMAS & NEW YEAR'S

The Christmas Craft and Art Fairs feature the work of local artists and crafts people with something for everyone.
The Christmas season offers many opportunities to meet others in the community to celebrate the festive season. An annual Christmas luncheon for our seniors, breakfast with Santa, children's parties and movie, a pot luck dinner for everyone and a family New Year's First Night celebration fill the Community Hall with Christmas cheer and good will.

The Community Hall is also the venue for many other social activities, meetings, fund raising and group activities. Each year there are five "Swap and Shop" days where tables can be rented to display and sell your crafts or "no longer needed" items. Music filled "Coffee Houses", dances and roller blading are other activities. See the Observer newspaper for dates and times for these and other local events.
