Craft sale raises funds for local PAC

Coquihalla Craft Sale runs 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the school gym on Nov. 24

Hope residents are encouraged to come and check out the Coquihalla Craft Sale on Nov. 24 in the Coquihalla Elementary School gym, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Parent Advisory Council (PAC) has put together a day featuring a variety of crafts, from ceramic jewelry, to wood works, Avon products, and more.

The PAC will also provide a bake sale, selling delicious treats.

So far, 40 tables have been rented.

“The money for renting tables goes to the PAC, which is used for funding field trips and other events for the Coquihalla Elementary School,” said PAC President, Toni Williams.

The Coquihalla Craft Sale started last year as a small garage sale, and this year it has evolved into a larger event, becoming more of a craft fair.

“It will be fun. We get to raise money for the school, and booths get to make money selling their products,” added Williams.

The school is located at 
455 Sixth Ave.
