Tough: The Poster

Okay, so a couple days ago I awoke to a bit of a shock. I had the Tough! poster proof sitting in my inbox and well let's just say it wasn't at all what I expected. The designer even sent me a pre-poster-image email to explain the idea behind the poster before actually sending me the poster. I guess to cushion the shock. It didn't help.

That's not at all to say that I don't love the poster. I do. It definitely gets your attention and as Andrew said to me it "should raise some eyebrows, huh?". It sure will.

Twenty-Something’s Second Annual Trash or Treasure Event

Yup, we are hosting another fundraising yard sale this Saturday, July 9 to help raise money towards our summer production of George F. Walker's Tough!.

Last year’s sale went very well, despite a cantankerous woman yelling at us, shouting racial slurs, and having the cops called on her. This year we’re hoping for something just as successful, though perhaps less dramatic.

Our location this year is pretty awesome. We will be selling our wares to coincide with the West End Farmer’s Market, so there is lots of cool stuff for everyone to check out. You can help to support local farmers, while you help to support us!

Some items for sale include:

- An Xbox + games

- snowboards

- lots of ladies clothes (sizes S and M)

- books

- DVDs

- household items

- and more!

We will be setting up shop across the street from the vendors on the 1100-block of Comox Street, between Thurlow and Bute, across from Nelson Park. Opening at 9 am and finishing up around 3 pm.

So come on by and hunt for your “treasure” this Saturday, or even just to come and say hello. The weather is forecasting full sun for this weekend, so let’s hope it stays.

See you there!
