Showcasing local business

The third annual Spring Into Action is this Sunday.

Spring is here, in case you haven’t noticed. Come celebrate the first day of Spring at the upcoming third annual Spring Into Action at the Cache Creek Community Hall and support the Cache Creek Youth Group while you’re at it.

This is a venue for local entrepreneurs who would like to either debut or promote their home-based businesses and hand crafted products, as well as for local groups who promote outdoor activities and healthy life style choices. Let’s celebrate Spring and all the wonderful activities, home businesses and local products in Cache Creek and Ashcroft!

Proceeds from admission go to the Cache Creek Youth Group, which is growing in popularity and attendance! The youth group meets at the hall or at the Cache Creek Park. We play team building games, create artwork and crafts as well as make snacks. The youth are ages 10 to 15 and are enjoying having something fun to do on a Friday Night! The next youth group is March 27 at 6pm and we will meet at the Cache Creek Park.

There will be demonstrations, entertainment, door prizes as well as a food concession operated by the Cache Creek Elementary School PAC. There will be many tantalizing products and local groups such as Scentsy, Epicure, Hoops & Poops (worm castings), Watkins, Geocaching demonstration, Zumba by Krystal, Sage & Sands Pony Club, Baking by Jeannette Renz, Stamps by Sandra Nixon, Baby Beanies by KC, Organo Gold Coffee, Soap Nuts, Mary Kay, and much more! Admission is by donation to the food bank, or to the Cache Creek Youth Group.

Spring Into Action takes place at the Cache Creek Community Hall on Stage Road on Saturday, March 21 from 10am-2pm. To book a table for Spring Into Action contact Marcie Down at 778-207-6957. Proceeds for the table rentals go to the Youth Group.
