Community Connect Day on July 20

Women-centred resource organizers joining together for community awareness event

  • Jun. 19, 2013 12:00 p.m.

Comox Valley women-centred resource organizations will join together for a community awareness event dubbed Community Connection Day.

Scheduled for July 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Comox Band Hall, the event will feature information booths about local women-centred resource organizations, according to Double Waters Society executive director Jackie Watson.

“The people who come to it will be more aware of the service providers in the Valley,” says Watson. “We’re trying to do some kind of fun event that will attract the public, but also educate them.”

Participating organizations will provide information about their organizations to event attendees. Each organization will also be able to fundraise in their own way at the event.

Double Waters Society will hold a barbecue and sell its home-made pies. The society will also sell various gently used household items to raise funds. Watson is looking for community donations of small pieces of furniture like dressers, chairs and lamps to sell. Anyone wishing to donate can call Double Waters at 250-941-1742 or e-mail Jackie Watson at jackie@doublewaters.ca.

Watson notes Superstore will donate hot dogs and smokies for the barbecue but she is also is looking for other food donations from the community.

The event will also feature entertainment, a raffle and door prizes.
