LOTS OF fun events for good causes are taking place this week with something of interest for everyone.
Plans to recover memories of the Second World War years here begin at 2 p.m. June 13 with a 1940s Remember When Tea at Ksan Place on Hall St.
“We are hoping to garner memories of that era from citizens whose families lived here and have stories of those days when 6,000 men arrived and the army camp began,” said quilt coordinator Marylin Davies. “These memories will help to develop the quilt squares and will also be retained in a book accompanying pictures of each square,” she added referring to the Ksan Place quilt project.
Then at noon on June 15, there will be an army lunch. Once again stories will be documented and ideas used for the quilt. Both events are free and to attend, call Marylin at 635-6468.
To help raise money for a trip to Mainstage Theatre Festival in Kamloops, Terrace Little Theatre is holding several fundraisers.
A bottle drive is on until June 22 and you can call or email the theatre for pickup.
Everyone is invited to throw a pie at local “celebrities” at noon June 15 at the George Little Park band stage. As of late last week, celebrities include mayor Dave Pernarowski, the fire department’s Dave Jephson and Joe Vidal for the teachers, to name a few. For more theatre fundraisers, see City Scene in the print edition of the Terrace Standard.
As of June 7, the Terrace Relay for Life had taken in $147,912. Forty teams, including many new to the relay, and 369 participants took part in the 12-hour long event June 3.
