Sweet way to support endowment fund

Commemorative chocolate bars are available at Hot Chocolates

There’s a sweet way to celebrate the City of Courtenay’s 100th birthday.

Commemorative chocolate bars for Courtenay’s centennial year are available at Hot Chocolates on Fifth Street. The bars are $4 each, with $1 from each sale going to the Centennial Legacy Endowment Fund. The chocolate bars feature a variety of photos from the Courtenay and District Museum’s archives.

The chocolate would be a perfect pairing with other Centennial fundraising items.

Select wines are available at four Comox Valley wineries: 40 Knots, Blue Moon, Beaufort and Coastal Black.

You can also make a festive addition to your wardrobe with a Centennial T-shirt, at the Courtenay Recreation Lewis and Filberg Centres. Only $20 including tax. Limited sizes available.

Funds collected for the endowment fund will be directed back to the community through grants supporting youth initiatives and community-building projects.
