Here is a list of the upcoming sale locations:

-Saturday, November 29
Tournament Capital Centre 5 p.m.

Hotel 540 6 to 10 a.m.

In addition, calendars will be available for sale during office hours at the Kamloops Fire Rescue Station in Sahali 1205 Summit Drive. 

Davies says if there are other events where calendar sales are welcome, firefighters will attend.
