It was a most beautiful day on Mill Lake this past Sunday (May 1st, 2011), the sky was clear and the lake was calm as it hosted the 2011 Walk For Kids Help Phone Fund Raiser. Two laps around Mill Lake on a sunny beautiful morning was in order, a great day to help the kids in our area. Last year it rained, it was miserable but we had a great time regardless.
This year there were more sponsors, and I would like to thank them all; Envision Financial, Owen Greaves (Emcee), The Abbotsford Heat, The News, Fraser Valley Pulse, Galaxy Bowl, Kal Tire, SAVE-ON Foods, 100.5 Peak Radio, The Yummy Mummy Club, Abbotsford Police Department, M & M Meats, Butterfly Treats and it was all topped off with the talented Emily Taylor Adams.
Emily Taylor Adams also donated 50% of CD sales at the event and her stand against kids bullying, she was our official cake cutter too, and she played and sang all morning long. If you don’t know who she is just yet, you can see her perform at the Cloverdale Rodeo, and she will be at GABBY’s Country Club in Langley on May 29th raising funds for Cancer. M & M Meats cooked Hot Dogs for everyone, there was coffee, water, oranges and other refreshments as well. Eileen Fisher coordinates this event every year, and does an amazing job, it’s always a treat to work with her.
I should mention his Worship Mayor George Peary, and his lovely wife made the walk , it was one of three walks they were taking part in Sunday Morning. Thank you for coming. Joyful George and Dilly the Clown were on hand, and there was lots of face-painting going on too. A handful of local mascots were on hand, Joyful George, Dilly & Hawkey, they paired up with a few of the kids and ran a 3 legged race, fun was had by all.
Next year this event will take place on May 6th, 2012. It’s the first Sunday of May each year, this is a fun event for the whole family to attend and take part in, put that date on your calendar.

MAHOGANY AT MILL LAKE LAUNCH PARTY MARCH 26
Visitors can win an iPad, and Buyers could enjoy upgrades too!
Here are some pictures of today’s ribbon cutting ceremony
ABBOTSFORD, B.C. – Hundreds of people will call the 26-storey Mahogany at Mill Lake high-rise their home when it is completed in approximately three years. What better way for them and others to mark the launch of Abbotsford’s tallest building than with a celebration from noon until 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 26.
Abbotsford Mayor George Peary will kick-off the high-rise party with a few words at noon, followed by the musical duo EachOther.
Food, beverages, tours of The Viewpoint (Mahogany’s stylish presentation centre at 2180 Gladwin Rd.), and an opportunity for all visitors to win an Apple iPad, are offered until 5 p.m.
Those party-goers who sign a purchase agreement contract for a Mahogany condo or two-storey townhome get to choose from either a mirage hardwood floor upgrade or full-size, high-end Maytag washer/dryer set as a special bonus that day.
Diane Delves, president and CEO of Quantum Properties, the developer of Mahogany, said the most exciting part about the building, aside from its traditional luxury and spectacular views, is its quiet location in the heart of a growing city.
Because Mahogany is right across from Mill Lake Park and near major employers, its residents will enjoy an easy walk or bike ride to work or major shopping.
“Its grand lobby will reflect the best in high-rise living,” said Delves, adding that the three-acre pedestrian- friendly property features walking paths, guest suites, gardens, a swimming pool, seating areas, fountains, public art and an open plaza. “Interest in the energy-efficient Mahogany condos has been intense,” said Delves.
Sizes range from 575 square feet to more than 2,400 square feet with prices starting at $199,900. One-bedroom, one bedroom plus den, two bedroom, two bedroom plus den and three-bedroom suites fit a variety of condo lifestyles.
Seven two-storey, two-bedroom Mahogany townhomes range in size from 1,159 square feet to approximately 1,300 square feet.
Quantum Properties recently demonstrated its civic pride by making a significant donation on behalf of Mahogany to Abbotsford’s Canuck Place Dave Lede House children’s hospice, putting the Mahogany stamp on the ‘Great Room’ there.
Mahogany at Mill Lake, located in Abbotsford, is a two-phase condominium project that includes a 26-storey high-rise building, expected to be completed in approximately three years, and a four-storey low-rise building. Its public launch runs from noon until 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 26 at The Viewpoint presentation centre, located at 2180 Gladwin Rd. just north of Marshall Road.
