Shopping to help curlers

Chilliwack curling club, junior curling championships

The Chilliwack Curling Club’s junior women’s team is hosting a Ladies Shopping Night Thursday at the Best Western Rainbow Country Inn.

The Vedder room will be open from 6 to 9 p.m., packed with vendors ready to help you get your Christmas shopping done.

The junior curlers have had a busy season and are working hard to get to provincials at the end of December. The proceeds from this event will assist them in that goal.

The cost of admission is $5, with door prizes, refreshments and a raffle draw available.

the list of vendors  in attendance will include; Vicki Williams (Scentsy), Shannon Ross (Silpada), Anita Morgan (Tupperware), Pamela Law (Partylite), Penny Code (Avon), Lorraine Clayton (Watkins) and Angie Martin (Pampered Chef).

They have all donated door prizes and 10 per cent of that evening’s sales.

 

— The Chilliwack Curling Club finds itself short of junior curlers this season.

The Little Rockers program is available to youths between the ages of 8 and 11, at a cost of $50 for the season. The junior program, for ages 11-18, costs $60 for the season.

CCC is hosting the mainland/island junior regional playdowns Dec. 3-5.

Four boys teams and four girls teams will emerge from that bonspiel and move on to provincials, which take place in Victoria Dec. 27-30.
