Last week, the Cornerstone Children’s Centre (Daycare) in Fairview received financial support from the Nelson and District Credit Union for its Children’s Carnival which is taking place this Saturday.
Last week, Des Reilly from the credit union joined event organizer Cindy Turner and the rest of the Cornerstone crew for a show of thanks. Saturday’s carnival will be taking place at the Cornerstone gymnasium (611 5th Street).
The carnival runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and has over 15 carnival games including: tame the flame (junior firefighting game with members of the Nelson Fire Department Auxillary), prize wheel (created by Gericks Cycle and Ski), fish pond, lucky treasure chest, sucker pull, monster bowling, paratroopers landing, flower bean bag toss, pot o’ gold bean bag toss, puddle ducky, froggy toss and more. There will be free face painting, lots of great door prizes such as a one-night stay at the Prestige Lakeside Resort, family pass to Touchstone museum and Ainsworth Hot Springs and lots more.
Tickets are 50 cents each and go towards some renovations and emergency subsidies for families. Prizes include candy, toys, stuffed animals and gift certificates to local businesses.
