Silver Spur Toy Ride a great success!

The Annual Silver Spur Toy Ride was a great success! 45 riders and their horses, decked out in Christmas attire, made their way through the streets of Parksville with a wagon, collecting toys for the SOS Caring for Community at Christmas program. The Silver Spur Riding Club stopped at SOS for a snack and hot chocolate, and then carried on to Stanford Place where they collected more gifts! Their efforts brought in a very large pile of toys, $650, plus $130 in gift cards. Thank you to everyone who took part in and supported this wonderful event, benefitting our residents in need. This will go a long way in brightening many local Christmases.
