25 reasons to attend the Rotary Auctions and Spring Fair

Sooke Rotarians give you many good reasons for coming to the fair

Sooke Rotary’s Auction & Spring Fair is this Saturday, May 5, at the SEAPARC arena.  With this year being the club’s 25th Anniversary, here are 25 reasons to attend this year’s Auction & Spring Fair.

#25 Live music and entertainment all day.

#24 Help send a Sooke youth to college or university.

#23 Make someone smile… free entry for door prize, $100 flower bouquet from Sooke Flower House.

#22 Happily spend some $$, knowing it ALL goes directly to helping neighbours and friends in need.

#21 Get a brand-new-to-you bike at such a great price, you can afford to buy one for a friend too.

#20 Help eradicate polio world-wide http://www.rotary.org/en/EndPolio/Pages/learn.aspx.

#19 Because there’s no Canucks game on Saturday, May 5. 🙁

#18 Empower Sooke’s youth, tomorrow’s community leaders http://www.sookeyouth.ca/

#17 Buy some plants, talk gardening with other greenery-obsessive folks.

#16 Catch up with old friends over a beverage. Or meet a new friend (maybe someone who will buy you a beverage).

#15 Send a teen on a Rotary Youth Adventure … technology, leadership, film, forestry, culinary arts.

#14 Learn how fun and fulfilling it is to be a Rotarian, maybe join the club!

#13 Support literacy, contribute to book buying for Sooke’s libraries http://www.sookewestshoreliteracy.ca

#12 Sing O’Canada in public, loud and proud.

#11 Raffle for a Broil King BBQ, $2 a ticket.

#10 Tasty dinner … pork roast with all the trimmings. Mmm, mmm, good.

#9 It’s a party! Sooke Rotary is 25 years young and going strong!

#8 Business expo… who’s who in Sooke… see and be seen!

#7 Party time….clowns, miniature ponies, free cupcakes, bouncy castle… oh yeah!

#6 Rotary pier, SEAPARC bus, what’s next? Help us decide on Sooke Rotary’s next big project.

#5 Bargains, bargains, bargains … silent auction, live auction, online auction

#4 Because Mother’s Day is a week away, buy a nice gift early (and maybe save a few bucks, but don’t tell mum).

#3, 2, & 1 to attend Rotary Auction & Spring Fair: Because it’s fun. Because you care. Because we need your help kicking off our next 25 years of serving Sooke!

Some honourable mentions that didn’t make the Top 25:

•Highest bidder can learn Indian Food Cooking Lesson with Ron Kumar (Peoples Drug Mart). Ingredients, recipes, lessons included. Food for four people.

•You know you’re going to need it anyway … 96 rolls of toilet paper.

• You don’t need it but you sure do want it … salmon fishing, halibut fishing, crabbing tours, horseback riding, golf, art, jewellery.

 

See you at SEAPARC on Saturday, May 5, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
