Just in time for the start of ski and snowboard season, the Family Resource Association is holding their first annual ski/snowboard swap.
The event will benefit parents who have to replace sporting equipment yearly because their children grow so fast.
The swap will provide community members with the opportunity to buy used sporting goods for a reasonable price and to sell their used goods as well, making sports more affordable for everyone. The event will also provide some extra funds for the Family Resource Association and will go directly to services for families, children and youth involved with the Family Resource Association.
The ski/snowboard/sporting good swap is being held at the Family Resource office in Qualicum Beach at 181 Sunningdale Road West on Saturday, December. 3 and Sunday Dec.ember 4 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is a 20 per cent consignment fee. People can drop their sporting goods off at the office until Friday, December 2 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information call 250-752-6766, ext. 119.
