Firewood Sale Date Announced!

Saturday , October 23rd, 8AM - Across from Blewett Elementary

$280/cord - only pay for what you take.

This year's annual firewood sale fundraiser will begin at 8AM, Saturday October 23rd, across from Blewett School.
We will sell until we sell out!
Bring your trucks, trailers and strong kids to get a great deal on (ready to burn!) firewood for the winter!
Due to COVID restrictions we ask everyone to load their own trucks, so please come prepared to do so.  We will help out as much as we can/are allowed, as always.
Don't need a full chord? No problem - you'll only pay for what you can carry!

We are grateful to Kalesnikoff for once again donating the logs - and all our members and volunteers for splitting them up!

We hope our Canada Day Pancake Breakfast will return soon - until then, our annual Firewood Sale is our club's biggest fundraiser.  100% of money raised is donated by our club back to our community. A HUGE thank you to all of you who continue to support our growing club!
