Senior residents to show off talents at Festive Fair

The Gardens at Qualicum Beach residents and other vendors are ready to share their talents at the senior residence’s second Festive Fair.

The fair, which is open to the public by free-will donation, will feature a variety of vendors selling items from jewelry to cards, baked goods, ornaments and more.

Some of those vendors will include senior residents as well, said recreation therapy and volunteer manager at the Gardens, Lyndsay Boers.

Third floor and second floor groups will be selling knitting and various crafts, she said.

“Actually quite a few of our residents are going to be selling items and showcasing their talents,” said Boers.

The fair will also include live entertainment, gift basket draws, hot chocolate and other goodies.

The idea behind starting the event was to provide an opportunity for residents to do some of their holiday shopping at the residence.

“It went really well last year, so we thought we’d do it again, and our residents really enjoyed it,” Boers said.

The free-will donation for entrance to the event goes to a fund to purchase items for the enjoyment of residents.

The Festive Fair takes place Thursday, Nov. 23 at The Gardens at Qualicum Beach (650 Berwick Rd. North) from 1 to 4 p.m.
