Build a new wardrobe:

Saturday, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., the Big Annual Clothing Sale at Cates Hill Chapel will have rooms full of clothing and accessories at bargain prices. Admission is by donation to the Food Bank and all sale proceeds will benefit the Bowen Island Community School Parent Advisory Council.

Take a stroll:

It only takes 30 minutes of daily physical activity to start down the road to healthy living and minimize the risk of developing diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s. Get a start with Saturday’s Walk With Your Doc, starting in front of the library at 10 a.m. Stroll around the neighbourhood with local physicians and health care experts.
