Warm clothes available

If you or anyone you know needs warm clothing this winter, there is lots to choose from through the “Coats For Folks” program. Visit Ingrid at the Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce office at 33 Roberts St. Mondays and Wednesdays between 10:30 a.m. and noon to find coats, toques, scarves, boots and sweatshirts. Other arrangements can be made as well.

Hamper time

Today (Dec. 16) is the final day to register with the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association (LRCA) for a Christmas Hamper. To register, bring two pieces of ID to 630 Second Ave. between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Packing and sorting takes place Wednesday and Thursday, and hampers will be distributed Friday.  To volunteer, call 250-245-3079.


Last week, in the article “Chemainus Auxiliary honoured for its work,” we incorrectly stated the Chemainus Health Care Auxiliary donates to Vancouver General Hospital. It should have said Victoria General Hospital.
