Windsor Plywood donated materials to the annual Small Talk Plywood Cup held on June 18th, 2016. Dozens of amateur boat builders gathered at Granville Island on Saturday afternoon to race in the fundraising event.

Seven teams of four had 90 minutes to build a single-person boat from plywood to travel across approximately 300 metres of False Creek as part of the fundraiser for Small Talk B.C., a language therapy centre for young children.

In addition to time constraints, the teams had limited tools to build their boats.

They were supplied with:

  • two large sheets of plywood
  • a rod of lumber
  • one roll of duct tape
  • one bag of nails
  • a small handsaw
  • a hammer
  • yardstick

The “pie”stache

The Windsor Plywood store on 7th & Fir participated in a successful fundraiser for the Movember campaign on November 21st.
The Movember campaign encourages participants to grow moustaches to support men with prostate and testicular cancer and mental illness.
It featured Movember themed treats from Vancouver’s “The Pie Hole” bakery. Jenell Parsons, the owner/baker set up an in-store booth. She sold tasty “pie”staches with lemon and blueberry pie fillings to “dip” the mustache in. As well, she had her “To die for” butter tarts for sale as well.
Jenell raised $90 towards Prostate Cancer research and Windsor met her donation total of $90 from the store.
A big thanks to goes to Jenell and The Pie Hole for donating time, a booth and tasty treats for the day!
