We know the days are dark and long, and being stuck inside is making this January a little boring, BUT we want to change that! 

The Oliver Community League has been embracing winter and we're planning SNOW DAY 2021, a snow sculpture competition! 

The grand prize is $250 worth of goodies from Oliver Exchange and we'll also be running the competition on Instagram with a chance to win a dozen doughnuts from none other than Doughnut Party! 

We just have to get around 2 major challenges before we finalize details of the event:
1. Covid restrictions/regulations
2. The weather 


So keep your eyes on your inbox and on social media in the coming weeks for final details!


And while you're waiting, we'd love if you'd fill out our Events Survey so we can plan amazing events, catered to your exact desires 😎
