Spring Into Action coming up

Cache Creek event puts the spotlight on home-based businesses.

It’s time to Spring Into Action, when the annual event returns to Cache Creek on March 19 for its fourth year. It’s an opportunity for any local residents who run a home-based business or service to showcase what they provide, whether it be handmade arts and crafts, horseback riding, or karate. It also provides a venue for local groups that promote outdoor activities and healthy lifestyle choices.

“We have more than 20 tables already booked,” says organizer Marcie Down, who adds that the event usually has between 25 and 30 displays. Tables cost $10 each, and can be reserved by calling Down at (250) 457-6237. All funds raised will go to purchase softball equipment for the league the Cache Creek Activities Program is planning to start up this fall.

Among the vendors and groups taking part last year were Scentsy, Epicure, Watkins, Gold Country  (geocaching), Zumba by Krystal, Soap Nuts, Mary Kay, Baby Beanies by KC, Organo Gold Coffee, Sage and Sands Pony Club, and much more.

Spring Into Action will take place at the Cache Creek Community Hall from 10:00am to 2:00pm. A concession run by the Cache Creek Elementary School PAC will run throughout the event, and admission is by donation to the food bank, with both cash and food items accepted.

There will be demonstrations taking place on the stage, and Down says that while no entertainment has been booked, she’d be pleased to hear from any local singers or musicians who would like to take part.
