Many thanks to our local donors!  Well done!

Saltair Centre’s First Annual Christmas Craft Market brings in record crowds.

“Big thanks to the Saltair Community Society Directors for putting in so much time, effort and energy in making our first craft fair happen.

Also the amazing crafters who came to display their great talent.

To Hazel and Rose who came with their Food Safe certificates and served the soup that was prepared by Old Time Bakery in Ladysmith.

Thank you also to those that came and browsed, stayed for lunch, browsed again, bought lots of goodies, and left with smiles on their faces.

There were lots of laughs, happy faces from the little ones who had their faces painted.

It was wonderful to see many local Saltarians attending the market. People came from Ladysmith, Chemainus, Cedar, Yellow Point, Nanaimo and Duncan.

All in all a great day.

Thanks again to everyone. Job well done.  See you next year!”

Nadi Bottomley, SCS President
