In a move that’s part housekeeping and part public outreach, the society wants to reboot its connection the public.

According to Toy Run secretary Dennis Dalla-Vicenza, some organizations and individuals in the Valley don’t know how to contact Toy Run members.

The development is due to the coming and going of members.

“We’ve had such a changeover in staff,” Dalla-Vicenza said, explaining the new contact information.

People were sending correspondence to past members and it wasn’t reaching the society in a timely manner, he added.

There are two ways for the public to contact the group: send a letter via regular mail to ‘Port Alberni Toy Run, PO Box 1352, Port Alberni, B.C., V9Y 7M2; or by e-mail to patoyrun@hotmail.com.

This year’s event is Sept. 17-18. More than 600 motorcycle enthusiasts participated in the 2010 event, which marked the group’s 25th anniversary.

Proceeds raised help a myriad of community groups.
