Everything you need to know about Sunday’s Big Community Event

Free food, tremendous prizes and great entertainment at Port Hardy's Civic Centre

THE BIG COMMUNITY EVENT

SUNDAY FEB. 26

Thank you to everyone that painted windows, created special menu items, and special offers around town.

Please keep these specials and decorations going until Tuesday Feb. 28 as  the CBC and Arlene will be filming and enjoying our town until then.

There will be no parking at the Civic Centre.

NIT will be providing a free shuttle service from the Thunderbird Mall parking lot, beginning at 10:30 a.m

Leave your wallet at home, this entire day is free!

However, it would be greatly appreciated if everyone could bring a non perishable food item for the North Island food bank’s shelves.

The fun starts at 11 a.m.  and all times listed are approximations.

Everyone in attendance can pick up a ticket and be entered into all the draws.

A list of rules has been attached as well. Winning ticket holders  — except those winners of the second chance draws — MUST be present to claim their prize.— Carol Dirom
