We hope you will all come meet the saints at our Annual Open House!

SAINTS will open its doors to the public Sat/Sun June 23 & 24 between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

Please consider bringing an item from our wishlist. Also, someone will be on-hand to issue tax reciepts for any cash/cheque donations over $25.00 (every little bit helps).


Here us a link to downloadable pdf poster with all of the detail:

On the Saturday of the Open House, Cole a grade 7 students from Vancouver who created greeting cards from his SAINTS photos, will be selling his beautiful creations to raise money for SAINTS. Here is a message from him and a couple of snap shots of the cards:

SAINTS truly touched My heart when I went for the tour, I decided I would do some fundraising by selling cards. My cards will be on sale at the SAINTS open house on June 23, here are some photos of my cards.

Cole will be present at the open house on Saturday to sell his cards. The cards were part of his Global Citizens Project at Moody Middle School in Port Moody, where he lives. We're looking forward to seeing everyone at the Open House! Carrie - Cole's Mom.

Hi, Guys, I'm not at the Open House until the Sunday. I want to buy some of Cole's cards. I see he has an email address on his envelope, but I can't read it. How can I get some of Cole's cards?

Just a reminder as well, that Brent and I are manning a SAINTS RESCUE information booth at the corner of Pendrell and Denman Street for the West End (Denman Street) Car Free Day, Sunday, June 17th. We will be offering photographs of our popular Saints for a nominal fee. Sunglasses - valued $19.99 to $29.99 - free with a donation of $2. Samples of rug hooking projects, where the proceeds go to Saints Rescue, will be displayed. Barking Babies, Yaletown, has provided doggie treat samples as a hand out with a 10% discount card. Barking Babies will contribute a percentage of the proceeds from those discounted purchases to Saints Rescue. We will also be posting signs thanking, Steele on Your Side and Accurate Security for all their help with the Saints security.

I did get approval from Tony at Accurate to post the name of the company as well as their New Westminster phone #.

Carol's books will be on display for reference. Anne was sweet enough to provide a portable DVD player so we could run Jenn's video on Saints. We will post the Open House poster. AND we are really going to try to attract some folks to Maggie's 1000SAINTS program.

I hear the weather is supposed to be great this Sunday, let's cross our fingers. Last year was cold and blustery. If it's nice out the beach will be packed and we are one block up from the beach - that would mean tons of foot traffic - woot woot. Wait, perhaps it's woof, woof.

Did anyone send a copy of the poster to Fetch a Bone in Pitt Meadows, they sponsored the Christmas Photos with the Grinch event.
