What happens when two Grandmothers to Grandmothers groups join forces? More of a very good thing!
The Nan Go Grannies of Nanaimo are contributing outdoor Christmas wreaths and door swags to the Extravaganza (Friday Nov 29 2-7, Saturday Nov 30 10-4, Quality Resort Bayside, Parksville). First pioneered last year, these wreaths are constructed on a base of grape vine and willow prunings, greened with evergreen cuttings from members’ gardens and decorated by their group to become unique expressions of the Christmas spirit. When hung outside they last at least 3 months. They’re pricing them at $25 — and all proceeds go to the Stephen Lewis Foundation. Look for their display at the entrance to the Quality Resort at Bayside.
