It has been three years since the colorful banners that grace the poles on Railway Avenue were painted by local citizens. Our hot summer sun, together with wind and winter cold has faded the banners so the time has come to replace them.

A workshop to paint new banners will be held March 18-19 from 6-9 p.m. in the Ashcroft Community Hall. Hosted by Ashcroft Communities in Bloom committee with assistance from local artist, Jo Petty, the workshop will be free thank you to funding from the United Way.

We are inviting local citizens of all ages to participate in this event. As there are a limited number of spots available, people are encouraged to register as soon as possible by calling Andrea Walker at 250 453-9402. We ask that children be 8 years or older, but if a child between 6-8 wishes to paint that they be accompanied by an adult.
