Last year we saw 489 attendees, 24 exhibitors, 32 volunteers who contributed 135 hours on the day! We sourced a local bakery (Bella Nonna’s) to make 100 salmon-shaped cookies for us to give away to the event participants. We provided an opportunity for a local small business to offer their wares for sale and bought coffee and treats for volunteers from a new local coffee shop called “The Nut”. We hired local entertainers: Click and Clown, The Well-Worn Trail, and Lisa Rae Simons to provide on-stage fun for kids and their families. We also recruited mostly local environmental and community groups to attend the day including Ridge Meadows Recycling Society, Maple Ridge Museum on the Move, Maple Ridge Bears, the CEED Centre, Golden Ears Transition Initiative (GETI) and many more. We also had BC Wildlife Federation and the BC Conservation Foundation’s Northern Spotted Owl group attend as well.
