Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary linen sale set for weekend

Members of the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society are mending and washing piles of linen for the annual sale taking place this week.

Members of the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society are mending and washing piles of linen for the annual sale taking place this week.

The sale has taken hundreds of hours to prepare, said Gladys Laing, a volunteer with the society.

“We put in a lot of hours, more than two hundred hours are put in to get the linens, bleach them, wash them, iron them, starch them and mend some of them,” Laing said.

This time around, the sale will only be held in the fall, as opposed to previous years when there has been a spring and fall sale.

The main reason for the slight cutback is the labour required to prepare the goods, Laing said.

“Our membership is aging and we are getting burned out because of all the hours we’ve spent. We have no life except for linen but it’s really appreciated by the community,” said Laing.

The sale will be held this week on Nov. 4 (10 a.m.-3 p.m.) and 5 (9 a.m.-1p.m.) at First United Church, 15385 Semiahmoo Ave.

All proceeds from the sale will go to the hospital.
