August 18-21 Charity Book SaleĀ 

 
 
Our August Charity Book Sale was held at the Peace Arch Curling Centre from August 18-21, 2016. The location allowed us to display almost all our books on top of about 110 tables. In addition, we helped artists from the community display and sell their works. With assistance provided by volunteers comprising our own members, spouses, Rotarians from other clubs and Non-Rotarians from the community, we were able to conduct a successful Booksale. (see below for the list of volunteers)
 
All members of the public who came to buy books commented very positively about the venue and suggested we should conduct future sales at this place if possible. The lighting was good, the vast space allowed people to move freely and browse without overcrowding. 
 
The gross income from the book sale was about $21000. Net proceeds would be used to fund worthwhile projects in the community as well as a project in Pakistan in association with Adopt-a-village foundation.
