This holiday season, all of our Supporters are entered to win an $800 Shopping Spree Giveaway!

Councillor Dan Davies explains the day is meant to give residents an opportunity to ask questions of the Public Works department, as well as have fun.

“It was basically created as an opportunity to get citizens of Fort St. John to come out, learn exactly what the municipality does.”

As part of Arbour Day, this year Carmine Jewel cherry trees will be available to residents for $35, one per residence. NEAT will also be selling rain barrels and composters.

If you’ve ever wanted to dunk a city councillor, now’s your chance, as Councillor Bolin, Councillor Davies and Councillor Klassen will be sitting for a half hour each between 4:30 and 6:00 with all proceeds going to the Ride for the Disabled.

Tomorrow night is a perfect time to bring the kids, as there will be a free fish pond, bouncy toys and a rock climbing wall.

The Arts Council is running a Flower pot Auction at 7 p.m. and the Girl Guides will be selling popcorn.

To top it all off, draw prizes will be given out at the end of the event.
