The SAM Community Sale Event at St Norbert Market

St Norbert's Farmers Market Sale

On Saturday, September 18, 2010 the Stroke Association of Manitoba (SAM) was represented at the Community Booth in the Market space.

the Auxiliary Ladies, with assistance by SAM staff, helped pull together the supplies which I picked up on Thursday.

There was no charge for the booth and it can be used once per year by a non-profit group.

The weather was very cool in the morning and there was a huge demand for our mitts and hats. Sales were good all day but slowed down somewhat after noon.

We gave out papers with the auxiliary information to anyone who might be interested in donating materials or crafting for us or were interested in purchasing items directly from the office. We met several people who have had a stroke and a couple of adult children of stroke survivors who were interested in our services and took information pamphlets with them.

It was very positive PR to have our name seen by probably 1000 or more people. We explained about our organization to many, many people. It was a good day.
