Welcome Back Cottagers!

east beaches? traders, crafters unite

by kelsey schaefer For Interlake Publishing Craft show season is back in Manitoba and the Annual Grand Beach Area Development Corporation Trade and Craft Show is coming up May 27. The event, which is sponsored by the GBADC, will be held at Walter Whyte School and promises to be another successful, fun-filled one. The GBADC is a body of concerned citizens, both corporate and private, from the Grand Beach, Grand Marais and surrounding East Beaches area who are determined to improve the quality of life and increase opportunities through responsible economic development and preservation of the natural and cultural resources and heritage. GBADC is an open and democratic organization that is uniquely positioned to deal with issues that span municipalities and government departments. Membership and participation in GBADC is open to individuals and businesses that identify with the objectives of the organization. Roger Batchelor, current president of the GBADC and also the leader of the event, has been a huge part in its occurrence since its debut four years ago. ?We started the show to ?showcase? the crafters and trades within the East Beaches area,? said Batchelor. ?We are really trying to promote all of the great businesses in our area.? Walter Whyte Elementary School is located approximately 40 minutes north of Selkirk on highway 59. The school holds a large amount of community events and makes for a suitable venue for large crowds. Each artist, or crafter, will receive their own table at the event to display their products and discuss what they provide with the public. Along with those indoor tables, organizers will also be offering outdoor locations to those who would maybe prefer to be outside. Greenhouse workers, wood carvers, or perhaps businesses that bring large equipment are welcome to opt for an outdoor location. ?We also have each vendor supply a ?gift? that we use for free draws throughout the day,? added Batchelor. The event charges $2 per person for entrance fee and donates half of those proceeds to Walter Whyte School, while the rest is kept for the non-profit organization.
