Janet Megahy has become well known over the past dozen years in Aldergrove for her work as children’s entertainer Madam Butterfly, but this Saturday she is doing something a little different.

Janet is organizing a Valentine’s Fair on Saturday afternoon with all sorts of entertainment, prize draws and refreshments, with proceeds going to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

It will be held Saturday, Feb. 11 from noon to 5 p.m. at the Phelps Hall on 248 Street next to Fraser Highway, immediately north of Otter Co-op’s retail centre. There is parking available.

Just in time for Valentine’s day shoppers, admission to this fundraising event is  by donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of B.C. and Yukon.

“I’ve never done anything like this before, but we all know someone who has had heart problems, so it’s in their honour,” said Megahy.

The Jim Abbott Band has offered their musical services free of charge and donors such as Bob’s Bar & Grill have provided prizes for the draws. Dr. Holly Fourchalk will also give a talk on health at the event.
