Second Time Around turns straw into gold

Ashcroft second hand store gives out thousands of dollars to local non-profit groups.

January and February were really busy months for us at Second Time Around, giving out grants for a total of $4,950 in January, to: Boys Basketball, Winding Rivers, Sea Cadets, Sage Sounds Choir, and Cache Creek school trip. In February, it was $4,700 to: Village of Cache Creek and the Tennis Club.

So please, keep the donations coming so we can continue to give our these grants. The more donations, the more grants. At this time, we really need decent furniture (no beds!) – tables and chairs, couches, dressers, etc.

To celebrate our second anniversary, we will be having a Customer Appreciation Day on Wed., Apr. 11 from 11 am to 1 pm with hot dogs, drinks, cake, etc., being served by some of the groups who have received grants from us. Join us as it should be fun.

Our Annual General Meeting will be held Apr. 26 at 1 pm at the store. It is only $2 for a membership.

We are looking for a new manager for the store as I would like to finally retire. If you are interested, please drop by the store and ask for Val. We are always looking for people to volunteer helping in the store.

Any questions or comments, you can call Val at 250-457-9337 or 457-3080.

Val Martin, Manager
