June Update for Art Rave Members

Lots of planning and groundwork now underway for Art Rave 2014. Here are a few things to note on your June calendar.
Art Rave is entering a float in the July 1st, Canada Day Parade. It seems a great way to introduce ourselves to the community, promote our event and have some fun.
The Heritage Society is loaning us a 30′ flatbed trailer and truck that will need decorating so some work parties planned.

June 21st – Work Party to make float decorations. 1-4 PM at the Old Scout Hall, 4th & Montrose
Supplies provided, but bring along your ideas and props etc. Keep in mind the Art Rave colours are red, yellow and blue.
June 29 – Work Party to decorate the float. 1-4 PM at the
Industrial Heritage Society building in the Curling Rink building.
July 1 – Parade Day – if you’d like to be in the parade, please contact Linda @ 250-723-7158. Props & costume ideas encouraged.
*We will also need some help from members to remove decorations from the float after the parade.

But all work and no play, make for a dull Art Rave so…
No Work Involved Party – June 27 – Adults only. Starts at 8PM, the Old Scout Hall, 4th & Montrose.
