After 34 years of teaching primary grades in the Comox Valley, Lisa Brown is retiring this June.

Lisa was born and raised in the Valley and has considered it a privilege to teach so many local children to read and write.

She will sell all teaching materials, kid’s books, toys, games and month-long theme boxes by donation. All proceeds go to popular local charity You Are Not Alone (YANA).

The sale will take place June 19 from 3:30 to 5 in Room 141 at Huband Park Elementary school at 5120 Mottishaw Road in Courtenay.

All primary teachers, parents and homeschoolers are welcome.
