4oth annual Oak Leaves Bazaar fills Monterey centre

Sale starts 9 a.m. on Oct. 21

Monterey Recreation Centre transforms into a bargain hunter’s paradise, as the annual Oak Leaves Bazaar takes over the seniors’ social hub on Saturday.

The big fundraising event generally features rooms filled with art and jewellery, two traditionally popular items during the annual affair leading up to Christmas.

Proceeds go to the Monterey Recreation Activity Association to support its membership through sponsored activities, extras such as birthday celebrations and support for 30 clubs based at the centre.

The 40th annual Oak Leaves Bazaar is at Monterey Recreation Centre, 1442 Monterey Ave. on Saturday, Oct. 21 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
