Hospital Day is Saturday

  • Jun. 14, 2006 5:00 a.m.

It’s Hospital Day in Queen Charlotte on Saturday, a chance to have some fun, chat to friends, and help raise money for a very worthwhile cause.
It all starts at 8 am with the pancake breakfast.
The parade rolls out from in front of the hospital at 10:30 am. Just after the parade, it’s food, food, food, as the booths open selling everything from burgers to sushi, from popcorn to cool pops.
Throughout the afternoon, never a dull moment, with the wheelbarrow race, auctions, bingo, face painting, paper airplane race, the list goes on an on.
Hospital Day got started way back in 1908, it’s almost 100 years old.
For complete details, see the yellow flyer included in this Observer.
And see you at Hospital Day!
