project has expanded into the largest and longest-running Lower
Mainland drive, netting thousands of blankets and warm coats, hats
and mittens. Even when the news of economic downturns comes to

The close to 300 members of the Chilliwack and District Real Estate
Board wish everyone a very Merry Christmas season, and best wishes
