Ski and snowboard swap

The Family Resource Association’s popular swap meet is Dec. 1

Buy or sell some ski and snowboard gear while helping raise funds for youth services in District 69.

Sunday, December 1 the Family Resource Association is hosting its third annual Ski and Snowboard Swap from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The event provides residents with an opportunity to sell their used ski and snowboarding equipment for a 20 per cent consignment fee and replace it with other equipment at a reduced cost.

This makes skiing and snowboarding much more affordable for families as children tend to outgrow their equipment in one or two years. In addition, the association will be accepting gently used and laundered ski and snowboarding apparel.

There is no charge for admission. Older style, straight downhill skis will not be accepted because there is no market for them.

People can drop off items on Wednesday, November 27 and Thursday, November 28 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. or Friday from noon to 6 p.m.  For alternate times call the Family Resource Association at 250-752-6766 extension 119. The office is located at 181 Sunningdale Road West in Qualicum Beach, across from the museum.

The last two years have been very successful. The community support and participation was great and the Family Resource Association plans to continue to host the event annually.

The Family Resource Association is a non-profit agency that serves children, families and youth in a variety of ways.  For additional information please visit the website at www.d69fra.org.
