First and formost, a HUGE thank you to all our builders, volunteers, vendors, and businesses around Campbell River who donated their time, products and made this event so successful!

We have our 7th Handyman Challenge coming up tomorrow, this is our yearly big fundraiser, and every year the whole community pulls together and helps us out one way or another! Weather its volunteering their time, a prize for a silent auction or their time to build a shed, what a great community we live in!

Welcome to our new website and blog! Blogging is new to me (us) so bear with me (us)! We are so happy that summer is finally approaching! We have been busy little bee's out in the garden, preparing the beds, weeding ( which is quite the undertaking) ( we are novice gardeners!) and of course planting! It has been a fun adventure both creating and keeping up with the garden. What a great resource for our members. It is already being used as a therapy garden, with certain members coming in almost daily to access it, use it to create better moods or take out frustrations! Mind you, we have been doing a bit of both of it ourselves!
We also have our Handyman Challenge coming up, May 24th and 25th this year. For those who don't know, Handyman Challenge is our big yearly fundraiser. Most of our programming is funded by fundraisers and generous donations and Handyman is our main one! Please see the Handyman section for more detail. This year we are holding the build at our premise on the corner of 9th and Dogwood. Our mini market has already filled up and the projects this year are fantastic! make sure to stop by and see the progress! It also gives you a chance to hoke around our building and check it out!
