Sale helps

Church bazaar takes place this Saturday in Maple Ridge.

The Haney Presbyterian Church Bazaar happens this Saturday, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

It started 14 years ago as the Haney Presbyterian Family Bazaar, because organizers Ruth Larmor and Shirley Lyster wanted to emphasize the church family working and playing together.

The event has since become a community outreach.

The church hall will be filled with a multitude of gifts and goodies for all ages, from baked items and candy, antiques, sewing, knitting and other fabric arts, a silent auction, children’s table, crafts, books and then a lunch.

Throughout the year the church craft group, under the leadership of Karin Breuer, works almost every Monday morning preparing for the wonderful craft table, said event coordinator Kelvin Chiddick. All year, Breuer has gathered things for the boutique, which has always been a favourite for many. The church is at 11858-216th Street.
