Family Day thanks from Coombs

Thanks for the kindness and generosity in supporting the fourth Annual Coombs Fair Family Day Celebration.

On behalf of the Arrowsmith Agricultural Board (AAA) and Arrowsmith Community Recreation Association (ACRA), we would like to sincerely thank the Regional District of Nanaimo and all the wonderful community businesses, organizations and volunteers for their kindness and generosity in supporting the fourth Annual Coombs Fair Family Day Celebration.

This proudly “unplugged,” free community event, welcomed more than 1,500 residents and visitors to the Coombs Fairgrounds on Feb. 8 to celebrate the Coombs Fair “Year of the Sheep.”

Visitors had the opportunity to churn butter, spin, play old-fashioned games, be archaeologists, follow the interactive Children’s Railway and hold farm animals.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this a special and memorable day for so many families.

Kim Longmuir, ACRA recreation co-ordinatorParksville
