Volunteers needed for Skidegate Days

  • Jul. 11, 2005 5:00 a.m.

There is still time to jump in and help out with Skidegate Days 2005. The next planning meeting will be held July 15 at 1 pm at the Skidegate Health Centre.
Organizers are hoping to entice and thank volunteers for putting in at least 10 hours with a draw for great prizes. Co-ordinator Roberta Aiken says those who volunteer for 15 hours will have their names entered twice.
She is still looking for donations for raffles. Any interested community groups wishing to be involved in teams, parade, concessions, exhibitions or fun events should contact her at 559-4113.
Don’t miss the $12,500 bingo at the Skidegate community hall on July 21, kicking off the three-day event this year. The traditional canoe races, kid races, slo-pitch, Coke guzzling and fish splitting events will all be part of the festivities. A new event for this year is the 16 and under, two on two basketball.
All proceeds from fundraising over the weekend will go to the Skidegate waterfront playground.
