On June 17th, the Historical Arms Collectors Society of British Columbia presented its annual donation to the Canadian Cancer Society’s Camp Goodtimes ‘Kids Camp’ at the HACS Fathers Day Gun Show in Chilliwack.

The camp provides children and their families affected by cancer with a safe place where they can have fun in a medically supervised setting. As our number one charity, HACS has proudly donated over $100,000 to Camp Goodtimes over the past decade. HACS also makes an annual donation of $10,000 to the CKNW Kids’ Fund which provides support for children living with physical, mental and social challenges in BC..

July 06 2017:

On July 6th 2017 at our HACS Gun Show at Evergreen Hall in Chilliwack, BC a cheque in the amount of $20,000 dollars was presented by HACS Treasurer Mike Wallace to Winnie and Ashley of the Canadian Cancer Society’s Camp Good Times.

On behalf of the Directors and all members of the Historical Arms Society we are very proud indeed to support Camp Good Times which is a summer camp for kids fighting that dreadful disease called Cancer. As gun owners, shooters and collectors we take pride in providing support to the kids who really need some fun at this camp. During the last 10 years HACS has donated a total of $102,000 dollars to Camp Good Times.

Our Sgt. at Arms Al Amundson contacted Winnie and arranged for the presentation to take place at Evergreen Hall in Chilliwack during the Gun Show. Winnie told Al the money this year will be used to purchase a couple of new golf carts to move the children around the camp who have difficulty walking.

Evergreen Hall has proven to be a great place for our monthly shows. The City of Chilliwack has treated us very well. The hall is well lit and just right for our Sunday shows. The Mount Cheam Lions Club have been doing a great job in keeping us well fed with hot coffee and good food.
