As we look back this holiday season and think of the things we are grateful for, you are in our thoughts, as The BeadTrails Experience wouldn’t exist without great patrons like you. Thank you for participating in the trail this year. We wish you health, happiness, and joy in the new year.
It’s been a year of growth, development, and change for us, but we like to meet every challenge with an optimistic approach. That’s why we’re excited for the new plans and initiatives we’ve set forth for 2022.
One initiative we’re eager to see come to fruition is the launch of our Experiential Tours! We can’t wait to take trail goers on physical, driven tours to member businesses and more!
We also plan to focus on adding value to trail members' online presence. We want users of the trails to be engaging with and following businesses social media, visiting their website, signing up for their email list, and more.
We are doing another fundraiser run! This time for the flooding victims in British Columbia.
Until December 26th the federal government of Canada and the provincial government of BC are matching donations made to the Red Cross British Columbia Floods and Extreme Weather Appeal Campaign.
This means any donation made will be tripled.
All the proceeds from the sale of this bead will go to the Red Cross's campaign. Last year we were able to raise over $2300 for the Australian Wildfires!
We are encouraging community members to share our Facebook post pinned to our page.

Being a Summerland business, we of course participated in the light up! As part of the shop local Saturday’s event, we were one of the 12 businesses that could stamp customers shopping card. Customers who got all 12 stamps on their card were entered to win a $1000 shopping spree in downtown Summerland! Needless to say, stores were busy!
There were also prizes, our own promotions, visits from Mr. and Mrs. Clause, and more!
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and have a Happy New Year!
