Christmas in April? Have I lost track of time?
Walking into Lake Cowichan’s United Church, Wednesday, April 27, that’s what one may have thought.
Throughout the day, the United Church played host to an aptly-named Bizarre Bazaar, during which time people sold crafts, art, goodies, and clothes, in order to raise money for the church.
In the arts room was the husband and wife team of Myrna and Robert Lang. Myrna sold Christmas crafts, while Robert sold cards featuring his oil and watercolour paintings.
“I just thought I’d help out the church by donating these,” he said, of his cards.
Robert recently joined the Kaatza Art Group, and plans on having some of his items featured at their upcoming show, May 20 to 22.
His cards will also be sold at the Coffee Mill in Honeymoon Bay, with all proceeds going to the United Church.
“The church needs the help. It’s one of these things that keep it going. It’s one of the best churches we’ve been to,” Robert said.
The church will also continue raising funds during their weekly Thursday thrift shop sales.
