Light up your address for Santa this year

Get your own 911 reflective address sign at Comox Centre Mall Saturday Dec. 13

911 reflective address signs will be available at the Comox Mall on Dec. 13

If you are wondering where people are getting the blue reflective address signs popping up all around the Valley you can thank the Comox Valley Monarch Lions Club.

They continue to sell the 911 reflective address signs as a community fundraiser project that will help keep families safe.

Every year people spend precious minutes waiting for emergency services because the drivers can’t find their home. When it’s dark out, address numbers may not be visible from the street.

Households that frequently have guests over in the evening can also benefit greatly from installing a reflective address sign.  They’ll help food delivery drivers, taxis, and home visiting nurses too!

You can get your own 911 reflective address sign at Comox Centre Mall Saturday Dec. 13. Lion volunteers will be set up at the mall to promote and make these address signs. Just visit their table to order your customized sign and it will be made while you wait so you can install it the same day.

“We have sold hundreds of address signs and they are very effective, especially at night,” said Lion president Rick Grinham. “They are very easy to install because of the predrilled holes.  And 100 per cent of the money raised from this project goes directly back into the community.” The Comox Valley Monarch Lions Club serves the community by distributing donations, grants and bursaries to worthy recipients throughout the Comox Valley.

911 Reflective address signs also make thoughtful gifts for your family, friends and neighbours. They sell for $40. To place your order call 250-338-9602 or visit www.911reflectivesign.ca.  Orders are processed quickly and are available the following day for pickup.
