Annual Bazaar

Saturday, November 22rd, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The Olde Forge, 2730 Carling Avenue

This very successful event featured baking and preserves, a silent auction, attic treasures, knitting, Christmas items, jewelry and collectables. An interesting variety of items was on offer. The most popular table was the baked goods but the Silent Auction was also well supported. A hearty ‘thank you’ to the Staff, led by Elizabeth Parcher, for all their hard work in organizing this popular event and to all volunteers who contributed to make our Bazaar such a great fundraiser.


1st Annual Antiques Appraisal Day

Saturday, June 14th, 2014

McLean and Associates

Our first ever Antiques Appraisal Day was a great success. Over a hundred people attended and appraisals were made on a variety of items from jewelery to art to books and china. You name it, they appraised it. We raised over $1100 for the Olde Forge Community Resource Centre and we’re looking forward to doing it again next year.
