VIDEO: Puzzle sale returns with more pieces

Better weather and more puzzles—organizers hope for more funds raised

The 18th annual Friends of the Chilliwack Libraries Society puzzle sale opened its doors to a rush of jigsaw enthusiasts at Sardis Library Friday morning.

Rain didn’t keep people from lining up long before the 10 a.m. start of the fundraiser, when the room filled to capacity quickly.

This year’s event boasted over 2,200 puzzles, with organizers hoping to break the $6,000 mark over the two-day sale.

Last year, the organization raised more than $5,000.

The Friends of the Chilliwack Libraries Society puzzle sale is open Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
