Estate sale to benefit Grandmother to Grandmother Campaign

One Glacier Granny’s generous bequest

The Glacier Grannies were sad to say goodbye to a long-time member, Nadine Towell, who passed away just before Christmas.

However, they are moved by her generous gesture in leaving the contents of her home to be sold in aid of the Grandmother to Grandmother Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Campaign.

As well as her good-quality furniture, household goods, and sterling and fashion jewelry, Nadine possessed an interesting collection of art, reflecting her world travels. These are in a variety of media. She was also a keen quilter and sewer, and leaves a large collection of equipment and supplies.

The Grannies are holding an estate sale at 515 Chemainus Cres. in Courtenay on Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 18-19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. All are welcome to attend.
