Canadian Aviation Museum Holding Annual Fundraiser Tomorrow

Jun 14, 2013 No Comments by

There will be plenty to see and to buy in the parking lot of the British Columbia Aviation Museum in Canada tomorrow.

The museum is located in Sidney, B.C., and organizer and secretary to the museum’s board of directors, Eleanore Arkesteyn, says there will be a collection of goods donated to the sale mostly by the museum’s volunteers and board members. Also up for sale will be aviation and military books from the museum’s collection.

The parking lot sale coincides with the museum’s annual Father’s Day by-donation admission special. The museum opens at 9 a.m. and closes at 4 p.m.; all entry is by-donation only. The parking lot sale itself is running from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. — starting one hour earlier than last year, Arkesteyn said. That is to allow people an earlier start to their day.

The sale — which goes rain or shine — have been going on for years, said Arkesteyn, noting that it was running even before she got involved with the Museum in 2007. “We’re always trying to organize it a little better each time,” she added.
