The Hospital Auxiliary Society is holding its annual Customer Appreciation Day on Saturday, May 14, at the Thrift Store, serving up free hot dogs, beverages and other goodies, as well as some excellent door prizes.
Everything in the store will be half-price and there will be a fine selection of camping gear and summer toys.
The store will be open from 10 am until 4 pm and the hot dogs will be grilled from 10 am till 2 pm. It’s the society’s way of saying thank you to all their loyal customers and donors.
“Without their wonderful support we could not do what we do for the community,” society spokeswoman Wendy Larson told The Current.

A generous Alpine Club of Canada members is donating a full set of Canadian Alpine Journals to the Revelstoke branch of the Okanagan Regional Library.
“The only stipulation was that we offer them to a regional library or other worthy organization,” ACC Executive Director Lawrence White said in an e-mail to Community Librarian Kendra Runnalls. “Given our ties to Revelstoke and Glacier Park in particular, I can think of no better recipient.”
He said the set runs 1907-2015 and is valued at $4,000. They are to be kept as reference books, which means they cannot be loaned out.
