Willoughby Town Centre hosts family activities July 11

Does Teddy have a boo boo?

Is Dolly not doing as well as she should?

There’s help available this Saturday at the Teddy Bear Clinic.

Willoughby Town Centre is hosting Willoughby Day and one of the highlights is the clinic.

“Kids can bring their Teddys or their dolls to the clinic and they will attempt to make them better through various ways,” said Nicky Kruger, one of the Willoughby Day organizers.

The medical treatment for those fabric and felt friends is by donation.

The clinic benefits the Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation. At Willoughby Day, people can also find out about the foundation’s work and its volunteer opportunities.

Established in 1985, the Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation has raised more than $30 million to support Langley Memorial Hospital and the healthcare needs of the Langley communities.

Willoughby Day runs 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on July 11 at 208th Street and 80th Avenue.

In addition to the clinic, there’s lots to do and see.

Langley Township firefighters will be there with trucks for the public to explore.

Vanilla Clothing hosts a fashion show.

Shoppers Drug Mart has a cosmetics launch party. There’s wine tastings by Town Centre Liquor Store.

Dairy Queen is providing free Dilly Bars to the first 500 people and will soon be opening in Willoughby Town Centre.

Hakam’s Grocer has all sorts of goodies.

Enjoy psychic readings, a show and shine, face painting, the RBC craft tables, demonstrations and more.

Langley’s Karen Lee Batten performs right after lunch while DJMAK 6 will be spinning tunes all day and Music Schools International Langley has performances.

There’s also a chance to win prizes. Pick up a passport at any store and get it stamped.

When it’s full, enter it in the draw.

There’s also $1,700 in Willoughby Town Centre gift cards up for grabs during the day.

Another prize is the trip for four to Disneyland.

The draw is at the end of the day and is G&F Financial’s way to mark its first anniversary at the location.

Kruger noted there’s ample parking at the site. Willoughby Town Centre had held a summer celebration for the past few years since it was constructed and this will be an annual event.

As well the retail complex hosts a Christmas celebration.
