Parents to pay for out-of-catchment busing BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

TODAY'S WEATHER

Parents of children who attend schools out of their catchment area are going to have to start paying for busing, School District No. 8 (Kootenay Lake) trustees have decided. A motion by trustee Lenora Trenaman, who represents Crawford Bay, East Shore and West Shore, to direct senior staff not to implement busing fees of $20 per month per child was defeated at the June 19 board meeting in Nelson. The board of education meeting included more than 24

parents, teachers and principals, who attended at the Creston Education Centre by videoconference. Trenaman introduced her motion by apologizing to the board, parents and staff, explaining that through the budget discussion process, she had not caught the new plan to implement busing charges. “How did I not pick up on this?” she asked. “I can’t give you a good answer about how I missed it. But I did. “It took a heck of a lot of courage for me to bring this forward at this late point, but I’ve always spoken against fees — I

believe public education should be free for everyone.” Before the motion was introduced, parents in Creston and Nelson spoke of their opposition to busing fees, in part because there is no clarity about how they will be assessed. Students attend schools out of their catchment areas for a number of reasons, comments from parents and trustees revealed: by the choice of parents, because there wasn’t room in the catchment school for a student, because there wasn’t space for all of the of students in a family at one school when it moved into a catchment

area and because the desire to take specific educational programs might require a student to attend a different school. “It doesn’t seem fair to suddenly start charging for students out of the catchment area when the system has been the same for years,” Canyon-Lister Elementary School parent Lisa Tessman said. “What if a catchment school was full when parents came here and their children are now established in another school? Is their choice to pay for busing or move their children to a different school?” See SD8, page 3

State of emergency declared in West Creston “Sections of Peterman Road have experienced eight to 12 inches of water as Kootenay River has overflowed an adjacent field and the road,” said a press release issued that evening. “Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MOTI) and Yellowhead Road and Bridge (YRB) are monitoring the situation.” Creston Search and Rescue alerted

Advance Staff

On Monday night, the Regional District of Central Kootenay’s Emergency Operations Centre declared a state of local emergency and a precautionary evacuation alert in response to flooding from the Kootenay River on Peterman Road in West Creston.

approximately 35 houses south of the impacted area, which can be avoided via an alternate route connecting to Smith Road, although a four-wheel-drive vehicle is recommended as it is a MOTI right-ofway and relatively rough. Environment Canada issued a rainfall advisory warning for Tuesday, which includes the Kootenay Lake area. Localized

thunderstorms were expected to bring precipitation amounts between 20 and 40 mm. “The condition of Peterman Road and extent of flooding is somewhat dependent on the amount of rain that falls locally,” said the release. For the latest news on the evacuation alert, visit www.crestonvalleyadvance.ca.

SD8 charging for busing

From page 1 At the June 19 meeting, Tessman said that rumblings about possible transportation fees began to surface in May, but it wasn’t until recent weeks when it became clear of the district’s intent. “It seems like there is more going on than [parents] know,” she said. “Maybe this is another way to help close smaller schools.” She also said that she had spoke to a parent who is now considering home-schooling a child rather than moving the student to a different school or facing added costs. “This decision could help push more kids out of our schools,” Tessman, whose own child attends school in her catchment area. “Another problem is that catchment areas haven’t always been clear. I think there are parents in Kitchener who are sending their kids to one school that they think is the catchment school, but in fact it is not — this whole thing doesn’t seem to have been very well thought out. “Also, there are parents who will home-school because they only feel comfortable with their kids being in Canyon-Lister and not with putting them into a large school like [Adam Robertson Elementary School].” Another parent, Lisa Cote, pointed out that parents had received no written notification about the district’s plan to begin charging for transportation of students who attend schools out of their own neighbourhood. Canyon-Lister Parent Advisory Council chair Trudy Robinson reported that in a discussion with district operations director Larry Brown, he denied that children had been forced to attend school out of their residential area because of a lack of space. “He said that there is always room at a school, that portables can be used if necessary,” she said. In discussion of Trenaman’s motion, South Rural trustee Annette Hambler-Pruden expressed her opposition to busing fees.

“I am really upset at the possibility of implementing these fees,” she said. “We have parents who will do without to get their kids into the school they want them in — kids could be coming to school hungry because we have a lot of families who have very low incomes. … We already have kindergarten kids in West Creston who are catching a school bus when they should still be sleeping.” “This could push parents into home-schooling. Then, when that doesn’t work, the children come back into the public school system and we all have to pay to help them catch up. And there can be room in a school for one child but not the sibling — it isn’t fair to split up families.” Hambler’s South Rural counterpart, Rebecca Huscroft, spoke against Trenaman’s motion. “I, too, am a strong advocate of free public education in our community schools,” she said, “but if you choose to send your children out of your beautiful communities, why should costs be borne by everyone else? I believe in choice, but at some time you have to draw the line.” Town of Creston trustee and board chair Mel Joy sided with the administration’s recommendation. “I put a huge value on the catchment schools,” she said. “I have a difficult time with fees, but when I know that there is a good school in each community, I think we are making the right decision. Charging fees for out-of-catchment students for me comes second to the strength of our community schools.” Despite Trenaman’s caution that “this is a slippery slope”, the board narrowly defeated her motion. Supt. Jeff Jones said meetings should now be scheduled with parents and staff to discuss how the fees will be implemented. “We will do our very best to work with communities,” he said. “These consultations should have been made before this was ever implemented,” Joy said.

New Life Furniture expands recycling services BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

Your old typewriter, karaoke machine and floppy discs don’t have to sit in a corner gathering dust any longer. They can now be recycled at New Life Furniture and Recycling, along with your small satellite dish, VHS tapes, radar detector, overhead projector, disposable camera, CB radio, musical instruments with electronic components — the seemingly endless list contains dozens of items. Through the Encorp ReturnIt program, the 114 Northwest Blvd. store can take more items than ever, expanding from electronics — such as TVs and

computer monitors — and small appliances. “The things we don’t recycle, we try to refer to another place,” said manager Amanda Cannon. The recycling shop is run by Kootenai Community Centre Society, and the profits from used furniture sales and recycling go to social programs, including Stopping the Violence (Irvine House women’s shelter, Older Women’s Safe Home and Outreach Services for Women), advocacy, child care programs (Teddy Bear Day Care, Grizzly Bear Out of School Care) and youth programs (Beyond Wild and PARTY — Prevent Alcohol

and Risk-Related Trauma in Youth). Since it opened about four years ago, New Life has expanded its services, and moved from a smaller Alice Siding location to the downtown storefront that allowed higher visibility and more space — space that hasn’t been empty since. Each week, Encorp takes away between 1,440 and 1,700 kg of recyclables — the greater volume means the program always needs volunteers. “They don’t need to be able to lift,” said Cannon. “We try to stack non-lifters with those who can lift.” For more information, drop by or call 250-428-0098.

A world of colour

art

Who: Win Dinn What: Paintings and multimedia

Where: In the studio in her Erickson Road home When: In Creston since 2006 Why: Creating feeds the soul

Surprisingly, she wasn’t especially artistic as a child. “I didn’t get into doing art until I started colouring mandalas as an adult,” she says. Colouring mandalas? It was a therapeutic approach to working through a family tragedy, one that eventually led her to designing mandalas and then painting them. Definitions of the word mandala usually include references to designs, usually circular, that symbolize the universe or express a personal striving for unity of the self.

BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

In the six years since Win Dinn and her husband John moved to the Creston Valley, she has been a gallery owner, an artist and a teacher. And she has become known for her fascination — no, let’s call it obsession — with colour. Looking through Dinn’s paintings and multi-media creations, scrolling through her Internet blog and perusing her Facebook posts, it quickly becomes apparent that she sees, and appreciates, colour in a distinct and highly developed way. The human eye has three different types of cones, or photoreceptors, that allow us to distinguish red, blue and green colour wavelengths. Pigeons and butterflies are pentachromats — they can distinguish five colours. But the queens of colour vision are the stomatopods, including the peacock mantis shrimp, which have 16 different photoreceptor pigments that allow them to see a range of colours that puts humans to shame. Think of Dinn as the human equivalent of the peacock mantis shrimp.

“The mandala is a classic concept that shows up in cultures throughout history,” Dinn says. “The shape and design is meditative and invites focus — they are a very therapeutic form. I start painting them intuitively, then became fascinated when I found that they appear in every area of the planet and have their base in nature. “The planet holds such things as sacred — there is definitely something there.” She and John came to Creston from Canmore, where both had been active in the arts community, creatively and organizationally. There is a sense of order and purpose to everything the couple does, perhaps as a result of the careers — she was an office manager and John worked as a draftsman in the

Actors, Kokanee props wanted for movie BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

Until the end of June, online auditions will be accepted at www. themovieouthere.ca for spots — speaking roles, action roles and extras — in a yet-to-be-named film produced by Alliance Atlantis. Producers are also looking for Kokanee-themed props, songs to include on the soundtrack and bars to be featured in the film. The 90-minute film, which will be released in February 2013, is about a group of high school buddies who reunite in a ski town where Kokanee plays a big part in everyday life, taking Kokanee’s participation beyond standard product placement. “We have this kind of cult following and we have fans willing to engage with us, so why not dial that up and take that engagement to a

level no brand has done?” said Amy Rawlinson, Kokanee brand manager for Labatt. “Our fans have historically been very engaged with the brand.” Those who audition must receive 25 or more votes to be considered for a part in the film, which will begin shooting in August and feature the ranger and Glacier Girls from the Kokanee TV commercials. In addition, some celebrity cameos are in the works. “Anyone that appears in the movie has to be relevant to the western Canadian, because that’s what our brand is all about,” said Rawlinson. “It’s not only a movie about these guys getting together, but about western Canadian pride.” And there is also a chance the Columbia Brewery will be seen — it is, after all, the home of Kokanee. “There may very well be some scenes with Kokanee trucks leaving the plant in Creston,” said Rawlinson. “We’ll be sticking to the roots of the brand and where it was born.”

structural steel industry. He paints and does photography. When retirement age appeared on the horizon, the couple visited the Okanagan, where they have family. But another family member recommended that they drive through Creston before returning home. “We fell in love with the area and within about a month we had bought a house,” Dinn says. “The Creston Valley seemed quieter — we liked the lack of craziness that surrounds the Okanagan, which has grown so quickly. We loved the fruit trees and found the people to be very friendly. That there was already a strong arts community was clearly very important to us, too.” Like many who choose a different area to retire in, they could hardly wait to make the move. “It was just awful,” she laughs. “We came much earlier than we had planned — there was an almost unbearable pull.” Knowing that she was unlikely to find work in Creston, she underwent a yearlong planning process that led to the opening of Painted Turtle Gallery in downtown Creston. The gallery was an instant hit with artists, local residents and visitors. It was filled with art in many media, with the emphasis on Kootenay artists. “It was a fabulous experience and I am so thankful that we actually did it,” she says. “I learned a ton, from a business owner’s point of view and I loved the social aspect of it.” What appeared to be a fixture on Canyon Street couldn’t survive a sudden downturn in the economy, though. “I was doing everything right and we just got kicked by the economy. I hear how much the gallery is missed every time I go downtown.” When one door closes, another often opens, though, and she has used her time to focus on her own creativity and to offer a series of a workshops, too. Dinn first painted with acrylics and for a while focused on pastels. In recent years, though, she has fallen in love with making multimedia pieces, which might include photographs, as well as objects and paint. They allow her tremendous freedom to explore the use of colour and to use found objects that inspire her on a daily basis. In fact, she collects little objects of interest

and when she is looking for a source of inspiration they often give her just what she needs to get started. “Mixed media allows me to incorporate everything I’ve learned in all different areas. It keeps my interest really engaged. “Everything is collage fodder. The most mundane thing, like a nut and bolt, can start series of paintings — I’ve even used computer parts.” “Very strong colours are always inspiring. I take a lot of inspiration from nature, including drawing and pressing leaves.” On her blog (www.windinnart.blogspot.ca), Dinn recently posted a pastel she did a few years back. Rodgriguez Island Gecko features a blue gecko against blue and orange design that appears to be an extreme close-up of the gecko’s skin. It is from a series she called Vanished from the Pattern. She then goes on to introduce another series, Fading from the Pattern, which uses several photos to explain the process she used to create Hung Out to Dry, which includes a National Geographic photo of a lion against a backdrop of red mountains, with a subtle lion paw print imposed on the surface. “I find there are subjects and/or issues that will just not leave me alone, and I suspect the destruction of our environment will continue as a theme throughout my artistic life,” she writes. Asked what direction she would like to take her creative spirit and colour-obsessed eye in the coming years, Dinn’s first thoughts turn to teaching. “I’d like to be doing workshops across Western Canada and the Northwest United States,” she said, “as well as creating and showing my own work. My art is as much about teaching as it is about painting.” Dinn’s work is currently on display at Creston Framing and Cherrybrook Farms in Erickson, as well as Fisher Peak Gallery in Cranbrook.

All About Gout Gout is considered a form of arthritis. It occurs when uric acid (a breakdown product of the body’s metabolism) crystalizes in and around the joints. These crystals cause an inflammatory response which is characterized by acute pain (often severe), redness, swelling and heat. Uric acid is a normal by-product of metabolism. Several factors can cause result in higher levels of uric acid such as defects in metabolism, medications, food rich in purines (such as seafood and red meat), obesity and high blood pressure. The female hormone estrogen is known to reduce uric acid levels and explains why pre-menopausal women have a lower chance of developing gout. Data from the Arthritis Society indicate that the incidence of gout has doubled in the past 20 years. Attacks of gout usually only involve one joint (most often the toe) or a few joints. Early attacks generally resolve themselves in about 3 to 10 days. Over time the attacks escalate often becoming more frequent and often involving several joints. Gout attacks can be extremely painful. The good news is that gout attacks respond to medications very quickly. In the acute or initial phase, NonSteroidal Anti-Iflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) (e.g. indomethacin), colchicine or corticosteroids (e.g. prednisone) are used to stem the attack. NSAIDs remain the most commonly used medications for treating acute gout attacks. Colchicine is also used for acute gout. Colchicine is effective, but in high doses leads to predictable stomach irritation. Corticosteroids are typically used in those patients who cannot tolerate NSAIDs or colchicine.

Gout attacks can also be prevented by reducing a patient’s blood levels of uric acid. There are 2 medications available in Canada for this use-allopurinol and febuxostat (which was recently marketed). Avoiding or reducing red meat and shellfish in the diet will also reduce uric acid. Avoidance of beer and beverage with high amounts of fruit sugars may also benefit gout patients. While gout will continue to affect 2% of both men over 20 and women over 50 in Canada, recent advances mean that gout and the accompanying pain can be avoided.

I’ve just finished reading The Golden Spruce, a Governor General’s Literary Award winner for non-fiction written in 2005. It was highly recommended by a friend and it turned out to be much more than I expected. Like many, I recall the news coverage when the famed golden Sitka spruce tree was cut down in 1997. It seemed like a merely savage act then, but the book provides remarkable detail about the history of logging in North America, the culture of West Coast Indians, including the Haida, and of what were the Queen Charlotte Islands then and now comprise Haida Gwaii. Author John Vaillant, who was born and raised in Massachusetts and now resides in Vancouver, is also a journalist who has written for, among other magazines, the New Yorker. The Golden Spruce has the feel of the sort of lengthy, thoughtful features that made me fall in love with The New Yorker 25 years ago. First, the tree. The Golden Spruce was of the Sitka variety, those extraordinarily tall and straight West Coast trees that were for more than a century logged for use as spars and masts for ships around the world. The tree in question was one of nature’s true anomalies — an almost pure golden coloured evergreen that was as healthy, or healthier, than the green sisters and brothers that surrounded it. No other competing example has ever been found. Not surprisingly, the tree’s uniqueness and beauty made it the stuff of Haida

legends. It was, after all, 300 years old when a career logging specialist of questionable sanity spent a night with a chainsaw, masterfully making cuts so the tree would

Lojong slogan 44: Train in the three difficulties

Zen training is a way to uncover and develop confidence in our own inherent goodness and in that of everyone we encounter. Zen meditation is a method for cultivating loving-kindness. You might think that this is easy, that all you have to do is sit around generating good and loving thoughts. But before we can shine with the light of loving-kindness, we have to enter the dark and have a good look at ourselves. We have to discover how we prevent loving-kindness from expressing itself in all circumstances. This slogan is about facing character problems. It is pleasant to bask in moments of inspiration, calmness or generosity. To do so inspires hope and good feelings in us. But it is much harder to stay with our obstacles, blockages and neuroses long enough to figure out how to deal with them. It is embarrassing and disheartening to meet them, so we bounce away from them and pretend they don’t exist. We blindly hope that they will just go away. According to the Lojong teachings, there are three difficulties we encounter with our character problems. The first difficulty is that they arise too quickly for us to catch. It is hard to

slow our minds down so we can recognize that first instance when a neurotic thought or emotion arises. There are, of course endless varieties of character problems, but a common list of

self. We train to let go of selfish motivations moment by moment. The third difficulty is that ingrained harmful habits keep coming back. Sometimes it seems like it is impossible to make any deep and thorough changes in our character. In Zen meditation, we learn to recognize these habits sooner and to release them before they penetrate our analysis of a situation and affect the words and actions we use to meet each moment. We learn to let go of a self-definition that buys into our conditioned Kuya Minogue harmful tendencies, to let go of attachment to them, and to stop these upsetting emotions includes inviting them back.

CVWMA deal will enhance involvement

To the Editor: (Re: “CVWMA agreement a shady deal”, June 21 Advance, page 7) I’m writing to respond to some of the mistaken assertions in NelsonCreston MLA Michelle Mungall’s column about the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area (CVWMA). I share Michelle’s support for this magnificent ecosystem and I appreciate its tremendous importance to wetland habitat preservation in B.C. I have talked with Michelle about the CVWMA on several occasions and, contrary to her suggestion, I have never refused to meet with her to discuss this or any other subject. In fact, I have provided Michelle briefings on a variety of topics of interest to her and her constituents, and will continue to do so. The strategic, immediate investment of $850,000 by Ducks Unlimited Canada and a 30-year agreement is to be celebrated. An interim agreement is in place for the next 18 to 24 months until legislative changes can be made. The previous governance of this ecological gem under a stand-alone act was not working. The transition to a new management structure under the Wildlife Act will bring the CVWMA into line with all other wildlife management areas in B.C. Similar partnership agreements, such as this one with Ducks Unlimited, elsewhere have proved to be very successful. Ducks Unlimited and CVWMA staff will develop a restoration work plan, a long-term strategic plan and an evaluation of the CVWMA’s public education programs. Another important goal of this partnership is to continue to enhance public engagement and consultation. Our government is committed to working with nearby residents, communities and stakeholders in the best interests of this critical asset. I certainly encourage Michelle to heed her own advice to leave partisan politics aside, and put her support behind this wonderful legacy.

Krafty Kronys raise funds to keep TAPS going BY MARLEYNE KRELL

When the Therapeutic Activation Program for Seniors had to move out of the hospital because it lost its government funding, Patt Robicheau saw a need. TAPS was in crisis. On hearing that this wonderful seniors program was in danger of closing its doors, Patt decided to get together a group of ladies to fundraise for this worthy cause. She and Marg Peterson attended a meeting that Jill Fehr and Alex Nilsson put on for public input. Patt called Serena Naeve at the Creston and District Community Resource Centre to see if she (Patt) could get a few friends together and perhaps have a craft sale to raise some money for TAPS. Well after about seven years, that is history. The mandate for the Krafty Kronys is to fundraise 100 per cent for TAPS. Patt, Marg, Joyce Semeniuk and Bonnie Hurley were the first Krafty Kronys. Patt is a lady with a big heart that gets things done with her vast knowledge and business sense. Marg is our gal that keeps us organized, handles the consignment goods and does the little things no one else does. Joyce is responsible

for raffles, craft fairs, crafts, etc. Bonnie is our computer expert for all our printing needs and co-ordinates with the other three. The Krafty Kronys are a very talented group of ladies, from making small grab bags, quilts, jewelry, painting, sewing clothes and all kinds of this and that. Rollie Dubeau is our man for making wood products. Our Kronys step up when they are needed at TAPS, including Marlayne Worthington cutting hair for the seniors. There are many people in the community that donate finished products for us to use or sell. The community of Creston has stepped in many times to help make everyone aware of the need in Creston. We come together once or twice a week to make crafts, sew, knit, crochet, paint and quilt; we have some members that work from home. With time and so many experienced Kronys, we meet generally once a week when needed. New members were recruited, with 22 in the early days. Updated in 2012, with and the coming and going of members, we now stand at 20 active members, including Terry Nowak, who does all the funding

proposals for TAPS. Our oldest Krony is 81 and the youngest is 53. Our newest member is Mable Bonderove. Over time, our executives have changed. Heather Stiles took over the co-ordinator’s job while Patt was away with health issues; she has since returned to that position. Marlyn Lakes is our treasurer and keeps track of our accounting. Bonnie is still our computer expert and printer, Joyce still does the table rentals for the craft fairs and Patt does the letters, as Marleyne Krell has stepped down from secretary. We hold craft fairs twice a year, with a luncheon and pie sale with the Kronys volunteering. The Kronys have now taken over the making of the “famous TAPS pies” that they sell at the fair, as well as at tables where they sell the goods they make. We have a Krafty Korner at TAPS that sells these items, as well. These are not the only sales we have; we also put our goods out on consignment, which has been very successful. The Krafty Korner and TAPS pies are always available to the public during TAPS open hours. The Krafty Kronys have been involved in many fun occasions. The most memorable was the fashion show they held at the Rotocrest, with members from TAPS, Krafty Kronys and Beta Sigma Phi (Xi Delta Chi chapter) modelling outrageous outfits. This was a joint effort between the Krafty Kronys and the Beta Sigma Phi sorority. Heather Stiles was the co-ordinator/MC. They had a sold out audience for the successful event enjoyed by all who came. Nicole Nilsson made a DVD of the performance and they are available for sale at TAPS. The performance was played again at TAPS for the seniors, as so many were unable to attend. The next event was the lunch for the 2010 Olympic torch crew That was a grand success, and we were written up in the Vancouver Olympic Committee paper. The luncheon was a complete hot meal that was home made by Krafty Krony and TAPS employee Rosalie Wilson and dedicated helpers. The lunch team was given a standing ovation. How proud is Creston? Let me count the ways… Among the many projects the Krafty Kronys have been involved in was the making of a calendar. It was very intense and a lot of work — now we

can appreciate how much work goes into making a calendar. We have had a couple of raffles, with some fine gifts donated by some very caring people. Overwaitea Foods and Extra Foods let us sell our tickets from their place of businesses. Tickets are also sold at other venues. To get us known around town, we made cloth bags to be donated by local businesses, with a pamphlet telling people about the Krafty Kronys and TAPS. The businesses gave these bags to their customers free of charge. The Krafty Kronys and TAPS members also make things for the Meals on Wheels trays to cheer up the clients. Colleen Kennard is in charge of organizing this event. All the fundraising has been to help TAPS buy equipment for the kitchen, the buses and incidentals. The Krafty Kronys paid for half of the first TAPS bus and 100 per cent for the second one, which was our largest expenditure to date, and also the repairs and maintenance of the buses. It is an honour to help our seniors who have made the world we live in a better place though the sacrifices of home and country by our veterans and their families. This is a letter from Jessy Cress on why she joined: “I have never been much of a joiner. I’ve never been involved in anything like the Krafty Kronys before but I was already volunteering at TAPS when I met Patt

Robicheau. Jill Fehr was the boss lady at TAPS at that time and getting to know this incredibly kind lady changed me in ways I can’t even explain. … Patt was so welcoming and friendly that I was instantly enticed to become a Krafty Krony. “I had no intention of doing anything of the kind because I felt I had no talent whatsoever for crafts. Having been a government employee (correctional services, of all places) and then an insurance underwriter (with some musical years in between), I was not even aware that such friendly, kind and non-judgmental women existed anywhere in the world. The feeling of being instantly accepted by the KK’s was wonderful and the rest is, well — wait for it — history! “The fundraising that has been done by the Krafty Kronys is nothing short of miraculous and the TAPS program has benefited because these gals wanted to help. The friendships I made in this group of women are a thing of beauty and as long as I am able I will continue to be a Krafty’.” The Krafty Kronys would like to thank our community for helping us help TAPS with their many donations of goods, time, repairs and discounts. We could not have done this without you. The Krafty Kronys are always looking for new volunteers. If you would like to join us, you can call Patt at 250-4285838. We would be glad if you could come.

Dumas playing in Summer Games BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

A Creston teen will compete for a provincial basketball title next month when he plays for the Okanagan zone in the BC Summer Games, which run in Surrey from July 19-22. Jacob Dumas is the only Creston player on the team, for which he tried out about two weeks ago. He already plays for the South Okanagan U-14 team — there was no U-14 Kootenay team this

year — so he knew the competition against the North Okanagan team would be a breeze. “We’d played North Okanagan in a Kamloops tournament, so I was confident I was going to make it,” he said. The 14-year-old point guard has been playing basketball seriously since Grade 2, and plans to make a career of it. “It’s one of the very few sports where you can score a lot of points,” he said. “And there are more opportunities to assist others. I get satisfaction from see-

ing other people get points from my passes or assists.” His game doesn’t just stay on the court, though — with two hoops in his front yard, Dumas gets a lot of practice in the sport he loves. “If we let him, he’d play eight hours a day — every day,” said his mom, Denise. And Dumas is looking forward to the challenge of competing against the province’s best players. “It will be fun to experience the Summer Games,” he said.

Young, Allan win ladies tourney CRESTON GOLF CLUB

June 12 saw the sun come out and the rain hold off for 72 women from all over the Kootenays for the two-woman Stableford point format played at the Creston Golf Club. A total of 36 teams of two competed and were delighted with the great weather and conditions offered up at the course. The winning team, with a total of 83 points, was Lynne Young and Bunty Allan. Rounding out the top three were the second-place Kim Phillips/Carol Reay (Balfour Golf Course) team with 82, and the third-place Cherie Baker/ Roma Crispin (Creston/ Balfour) team with 81. Following were: fourth, Wendie Cameron/Marilyn Sanderman (Cranbrook), 78; fifth, Connie Kotash/Wanda Flack (Christina Lake), 77; sixth, Jane McGarty/Joanne Prodaniuk (Creston), 77; seventh, Myrna Balne/Bev Poole

(Castlegar Golf Club), 76; eighth, Debbie MacInnis/ Madeline Bacigalupi (Creston), 75; ninth, Leslie Weaver/Lill Andrews (Cranbrook Golf Club), 71; 10th, Linda Price/ Ani McDowell (Creston), 71; 11th, Hannel Baldigara/ Patricia Robichard (Creston), 70; 12th, Claudia Campbell/ Marilyn Kettle (Creston), 69; 13th, Pat Chapman/Joyce McLeod (Creston/Radium), 68; 14th, Leslie Harbison/Bev Boborosky (Creston), 67. Closest to the pin were Heather Pottle (Castlegar, fourth hole), Marilyn Kettle (Creston, sixth hole) and Laura Wigen (Creston, 13th hole). Diana Forrester (Balfour) had the longest putt on the 18th hole. The Creston Ladies Golf Club expresses appreciation to Randy Panton and the pro shop staff for their assistance, Dennis Munro for the delicious meal, and Devan Davidson and his crew for the excellent grooming of the golf course.

Society greening the BC Games Black Press

Organized sport events, no matter how big or small, have an environmental impact. With the help of its motivated volunteers, the BC Games Society is striving to reduce its environmental impact and raise awareness. Community-driven programs initiated by the BC Winter and Summer Games volunteers are contributing to reducing the environmental impact of the Games and are developing leaders by increasing environmental awareness among Games participants, volunteers, and community members. For example, the 2008 BC Winter Games in Kimberley and Cranbrook established best practices to reduce environmental impact. A volunteer team of “Go Green” ambassadors were active and visible during the Games implementing the plan and raising awareness. This community-led initiative developed youth leaders and established important benchmarks that future hosts could refer to in order to reduce their environmental impact. The 2010 Summer Games in the Township of Langley took the lead to ensure all food waste was composted and recycling bins were available at all sport venues. “The challenge for BC Games host communities is the great variety of available resources to implement changes in areas such as transportation, food servic-

es, and venue operations,” said BC Games Society president and CEO Kelly Mann. “But, given that there is a clear desire by participants and host communities to reduce environmental impact, the BC Games Society took the lead to develop information and resources for community

volunteers to adapt to guide policy and implement action plans.” Before the 2010 BC Summer Games, Metro Vancouver, the regional government responsible for waste management in the Greater Vancouver area, provided policy and planning support. What resulted is a set of resources and samples that reflect the unique structure of the BC Games and consider the many different communities involved. The BC Games resource materials complement other established “green” Games standards such as a no-idling policy for all Games transportation vehicles. No bottled water is supplied to venues at the BC Games and athletes are required to bring a reusable water bottle to fill with tap water throughout their competitions. Greening the Games also comes in places you don’t expect. Until 2009, the BC Games torch was lit 100 days prior to the opening ceremony. This torch burned 900,000 cubic feet of natural gas and contributed 12 tonnes of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. The gas torch is now retired and replaced with an energy-efficient LED torch that draws 850 watts of energy — comparable to a household toaster. This torch symbolizes the innovation and initiative that the BC Games will strive to adopt with other environmentally responsible initiatives moving forward.

Society seeking memories of Gray Creek Hall GRAY CREEK HISTORICAL SOCIETY

The Gray Creek Hall has seen it all in the past 100 years. It’s been the school, a place for religious services, anniversaries and homecomings, even for packing fruit. Hall fundraisers from the Nickel Swindle Club to giant rummage sales. Workbees, potlucks, nudie sunbathing on the beach and meetings, meetings, meetings. Hot community debates over logging. Brainstorming our future. A groundbreaking environmental conference in

1986. A tearful community reconciliation with two young vandals who had hit on the cemetery. Children’s day camps, men’s and women’s groups, go tournaments, and wondrous, wild performances. The old log walls pulsate with life of the East Shore. As John Oliver said the other day, “The hall is part of the family. The hall and the community are intermarried. You can’t have one without the other.” As the community grows and evolves, so the Gray Creek Hall stands witness to a constantly changing scene. But through its 100 years, one thing remains constant: the small Robin Sturdy drawing band of volunteers who ensure the best A pen-and-ink drawing of the Gray Creek Hall used in invitations to the Gray Creek Hall's 70th anniversary celebration in 1982. care possible for the hall and grounds, steer it through create a permanent memory bank for feature display during Museum Days, changes, and chart its course for the this iconic public place.

Bear Aware urges safety to prevent bear encounters BEAR AWARE Another summer is upon us here in the Kootenays, and with it has come the British Columbia Conservation Foundation’s (BCCF’s) Bear Aware program. Bear Aware is an educational program that aims to reduce the number of human-bear conflicts in communities through education, innovation, and cooperation. Gillian Cooper and Logan Huscroft will be serving the residents of the Creston Valley, Yahk and Crawford Bay areas as Bear Aware community co-ordinators. Bears are required to accumulate a large supply of fat every summer to ensure they will have enough stores to make it through their winter hibernation. Unfortunately, human foods can often be a very tempting prize for a bear intent on packing on pounds. Their natural curiosity and their remarkable determination to secure food sources can often lead them into communities in search of food. In order to reduce the reasons a bear may have for being in a community residents need to manage attractants. An attractant is anything that a bear will sense that will entice it to come to or stay at a certain location. Common attractants for bears include garbage left outside or in unlocked sheds, birdfeeders/pet food, fruit trees, greasy bar-

becues, compost and livestock (especially sheep/chickens). Remember to leave garbage inside until the day of pick-up. Exclude things such as meats and fish in your compost. Feed pets indoors or clean up any uneaten food daily after your pets are fed. Birdfeeders should be stashed away for the summer months to avoid providing bears a food source. Also, maintaining a clean grill this summer will help to ensure bears don’t catch the scent of yesterday’s hamburgers. To ensure bears cannot access livestock or feed, it is a good idea to install bear-proof electric fencing. This is especially important for protecting chickens. Fruit trees are a major attractant in the Creston area and it is important to ensure that the fruit is picked as soon as it ripens. Consider electric fencing if bears are accessing your fruit before you can. By removing or securing these attractants in communities, we can drastically reduce the risk of human bear conflicts. If you have any questions or concerns, please email selkirkpurcell@bearaware.bc.ca. To report wildlife conflict or bear sightings please call the Report all Poachers and Polluters line, 1-877-952-7277. Bear Aware gratefully acknowledges the support of Columbia Basin Trust, the Regional District of Central Kootenay, BCCF and Transborder Grizzly Bear Project.

Canada Day 2012 Being generous is Canadian When you think of adjectives to describe what Canadians are like, you might come up with words like: humourous, passive, polite, friendly, or bland. Whether any of that is true, one trait we can take pride in is our generosity. According to the World Giving Index, Canada is the third most generous country in the world out of 153 countries. Canadians donate both of their money and their time, contributing thousands of volunteer hours to help those in need. It is evident that we have impacted millions of lives around the world.

Canada Day 2012 Great moments in history COMPLIMENTARY DESSERT

Canada has been its own dominion since 1867. Since that time, Canada has witnessed its fair share of memorable moments and remarkable history. Some of the more memorable moments in Canadian history include: • July 1, 1867. The day it all began, July 1 is celebrated as Canada Day throughout the country because on this day 144 years ago Britain’s North American colonies officially united as the Dominion of Canada. • 1873: The North-West Mounted Police are formed. Canadians and others across the globe commonly refer to these officials as “Mounties.” • 1875: Jennie Kidd Trout becomes the first licensed female physician in Canada. • 1885: The North-West Rebellion, an ultimately unsuccessful uprising by the Metis people of Saskatchewan against the Dominion of Canada, occurs. • 1898: The Klondike Gold Rush, a frenzied gold rush immigration in the Yukon district of Canada, hits full swing. 1900: Reginald Fessenden, who was born in Canada, makes what might have been the first wireless radio broadcast. • 1903: Canada loses the Alaska boundary dispute to the United States. Though the loss created disappointment and anger among Canadians, those feelings were directed more toward the British government, whom many Canadians felt betrayed Canadian interests. • 1909: The first Grey Cup is played. The championship of the Canadian Football League, the Grey Cup was first won by the University of Toronto Varsity Blues, who defeated the Toronto Parkdale Canoe Club on December 4. • 1916: The Canadian Parliment Buildings Fire occurs on a freezing February night in Ottawa. • 1920: Canada joins the League of Nations.

• 1925: Women in Newfoundland receive the right to vote. • 1935: The Bank of Canada, Canada’s central bank, opens under private ownership. • 1937: Trans-Canada Air Lines, today known as Air Canada, begins regular flights. • 1939: Canada, after initially remaining neutral, declares war on Germany, joining World War II. • 1952: Canada’s first television stations begin part-time broadcasts in Montreal and Toronto. • 1956: The Canadian Labour Congress, the central labour body in English Canada, is formed. • 1960: The Quiet Revolution, a period of intense change in Quebec that continues to inspire controversy today, begins. • 1961: Wayne Gretzky, who many consider the greatest hockey player of all-time, is born in Ontario. • 1966: The Munsinger Affair becomes Canada’s first political sex scandal. • 1975: The CN Tower in Toronto becomes the world’s tallest free-standing structure. • 1977: Quebec passes Bill 101, which restricted English schooling to the children of parents who had been educated in English schools. • 1981: Terry Fox, a Canadian athlete and humanitarian, dies of cancer. • 1992: Roberta Bondar becomes Canada’s first female astronaut in orbit. • 1992: The Toronto Blue Jays become the first team from outside the United States to win Major League Baseball’s World Series. They would repeat their series win a year later. • 2000: The Clarity Act, outlining the terms of Quebec’s separation from Canada, is passed. • 2010: Vancouver hosts the Winter Olympics, during which Canada wins 14 gold medals. — Metro Creative Graphics

Ben Lansing: Good evening. I am Braylon Gorham. Ben Lansing Braylon Gorham: And I am Ben Lansing. BL: No — wrong line, moron. I am Ben Lansing. BG: And I am Braylon Gorham. BL: Dang it, Braylon, we practiced this. BG: Sorry, sorry. BL: We have heard that a good way to start a speech is with a joke or a lie. Braylon Gorham BG: So on that note let me just say, we’re happy to be here. BL: But on a serious note, Braylon and I will be the chronological conveyors of all past events that have involved us as a grad class — or at least the ones our parents already know about. BG: Ben and I are hoping that we will be able to share some of those experiences that have brought us here, both the good times and the bad and then possibly some fun moments. BL: Martin Luther King Jr. said, “We are not makers of history. We are made by history” BG: Oooh, very good Ben. Following that idea, it is pretty amazing — in a historical context — that we are all even here considering the crazy things that have happened in our world. BL: Things like Y2K, BG: Swine flu, BL: Killer bees, BG: And even the feared Bieber fever. BL: We have survived them all. BG: Well, most of us anyway. (Pause for laughter). BL: There have been a lot of things that we have not necessarily had to survive but have affected us nonetheless.

The following speech was delivered by Prince Charles Secondary School 2012 grad class valedictorian Sierra Harland at the graduation ceremony on June 8.

Sierra Harland

Good evening, faculty and school district 8 employees, friends, family, and especially the graduating class of 2012. Graduation scares me… It’s not that I don’t appreciate the pomp, the traditions, the ceremony, getting dressed up and wearing this cap. And that nearly 1,000 people have come from near and far to celebrate with us tonight. It’s more about what comes after tonight. You know... The part when I have to say goodbye to familiarity, pack my bags and move out. I’ve been looking forward to this day for as long as I can remember. I hurried through kindergarten — well, kind of. And I rushed to graduate from Grade 7 to the big school. And must admit the past five years at PCSS have passed by more quickly than I could have ever anticipated. We all do it. Each day we seem to believe that our life will begin tomorrow, that we need to overcome that one obstacle or get to that certain age before we can really start living. But in our attempts to hurry our lives, we somehow forget that life is now. It’s now, whether you’re 18, 30 or 60 and every year between — because what really matters are the moments. It’s the moments, the laughter, the tears and the all the obstacles we encounter that cause us to stop for just one minute and think, “I wish this moment wouldn’t hurry away.” And now, here we are just moments away from the rest of our lives, and all I’m thinking is that I don’t want this day to rush away.

Years ago, Bill Cosby’s son remarked that he would be going home after the graduation ceremony and Bill casually replied, “Oh. So, do you live close by now?” because apparently human beings are the only creatures on Earth that, after leaving, allow their children to come back home. And thank goodness! Because when some of us are starving college students, we’ll be grateful, I’m sure, that we’re always welcome to come back home to mom’s full fridge. I took a lesson from another commencement speech because it has meaning for all of us and simply because I wanted every graduate to know how to write this sentence truthfully and honestly for the rest of their lives: “I am who I always wanted to be.” And I want to know that when you ask yourself this question at any age and at any point down the road that the answer will be a resounding, “Yes. I am who I always wanted to be.” I’m prepared to fail, and fail profoundly at some things, because that’s how I learn and that’s how I get better. I am ready to take risks and challenge myself, knowing that the last 17 years have given me the courage, the knowledge and the support to trust myself, my intuition and my ability to capitalize on my failures. We often get so caught up in the failure that we do not recognize the invaluable life lessons that help us become stronger and more equipped to contribute to the world. A well renowned author once said we all will make mistakes — interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make even glorious and fantastic mistakes, and some of us will break rules to do so, and hopefully we all will leave the world more interesting just because we were here. The world doesn’t care just how many times we fail and fall down as long as it’s one fewer than the number of times we get back up. See VALEDICTORIAN, page 21

Historians Hollyhocks hosting debut concert

From page 17 BG: Things such as 9-11, BL: The Afghanistan war, BG: The Bin Laden situation. BL: But they have not all been bad. We have witnessed the end of the Northern Ireland dispute, BG: We saw the Chilean miners rescued, BL: We saw Canada win its first Olympic gold medal on home soil, BG: We saw the Canucks almost win the Stanley cup. Twice (Robbie). BL: We have also seen Frodo defeat Sauron and save Middle Earth, BG: Plus Harry destroying Voldemort. BL: Ah, all good things — well, except for the Stanley Cup thing. There have also been some huge changes in technology and music. BG: I think they just announced the 100th generation of the iPod. BL: Plus the world take-over by the cellphone, and the uprising of dubstep sweeping the globe. BL: We have seen the social networking boom into a daily global event for most, 3D TVs, electric cars, and vehicles with practically everything in them. BG: Our world has become a pretty impressive place. But let’s bring it a little closer to home. BL: Who remembers the TV show Recess? Or The Weekenders? BG: Or Magic School Bus? Or how about Yu-Gi-Oh? Beyblades? BL: Pokemon? Or Polly Pocket? Barbies? Toy jewelry? BG: All parts of our childhoods; some have disappeared, but some have grown with us. Video games for example, used to have GoldenEye, Mario Kart. BL: Yeah, and like Sonic and Duck Hunt, now we have Black Ops, Skyrim, Angry Birds and new Mario Kart. BG: Or for the girls, you had Polly Pocket and Barbies. BL: Now you have Polly Pocket’s house, and I think Barbie has a car. BG: But aside from the material things, the experiences were great, too. Grounders, making new friends, nap time, getting driven to school on the first day, BL: Our first crush, when we loved going places with our parents... BG: And then when we refused to be seen in public with our parents. But how about something more recent? Going to high school, the excitement, the fear, and the freedom. BL: The first five months as a Grade 8 showing up for class five minutes in advance, now we all show up five minutes late. BG: (Or 15 if you’re Cory). BL: Since that first year we’ve all been going on a personal journey, whether we knew it or not, all trying to find out who we are, and what we want to do with our life, who we like being around, and much more. BG: Then through sports trips (girls won their first game this year), AVID trips. BL: Hey, AVID trips! Remember when the bus broke down, and we just sat at that gas station waiting for hours? Or all the days we spent watching movies and going out to Extra Foods for our project but we just ended up wandering around and hanging out? BG: And to everyone else, remember making fun of AVID, but then being jealous when they took their trips? BL: Anyway, like Braylon was saying, through sports trips, AVID trips and various forms of all-nighters or just plain chilling, we found out who we were. We’ve been through a whirlwind of experiences, some good and some bad, but regardless of whether they were good or bad, they affected us and made us into who we are today, and from where I’m standing, I think we turned out all right. Thank you.

Carl Erickson joins Warren and Kalen Huscroft for the debut concert of the Hollyhocks, Creston’s newest trio, at the Snoring Sasquatch on July 6. This will be an evening of very eclectic music played by three of Creston’s finest musicians — you will hear everything from R&B to Hank Williams to Dire Straits. Saxophonist, bassist and singer Carl Erickson, newly arrived in Creston, has a musical background spanning R&B, country, jazz and more. He began his musical education at 17 when he was enrolled in HMCS Naden Tri-Service School of Music. In Vancouver in the ’60s, Carl played with the Nocturnals, a band that made 22 recordings, most well-known of which was This Ain’t Love. Carl recalls how their band backed both Glen Campbell and the original Coasters at the PNE Dance Party. A sought after studio musician, Erickson has made more than 100 studio recordings in Calgary, Vancouver, Seattle and Vancouver, Wash. He has toured with the Elvis, Elvis, Elvis show, the Buck Owens Review, and Spade Neilson and the Gamblers. He played with the Ronny King Band for four years. In China, pop hit I Let Go (featuring Erickson on saxophone) is listened to by tens of thousands, causing him to comment, “I wish I’d wrote it!” Keyboardist Kalen Huscroft (née Wild) will be known to many as one of Creston’s music teachers, teaching both violin and piano in her West Creston studio. You may also have seen Kalen leading the Creston Fiddlers at various local events in the past few years. She started her musical journey in Toronto where she used her classical training to accompany ballet classes in local dance studios and at the Banff School of Fine Arts in the late ’60s. As well, she was busy teaching piano, playing recorders in a Renaissance ensemble, and singing

Valedictorian

From page 17 The graduating class of 2012 recognizes that there are a lot of people we need to thank and acknowledge for the gentle nudges and for the really big pushes that contributed to us gathering here this evening. Firstly, to our parents and guardians: Thanks. And, Mom and Dad, I know it was tempting at times, but I am eternally grateful for all the last minute change-of-minds and U-turns you made in front of the child exchange depot, instead of swapping me in. I am who I am in part due to your support, your patience and your unconditional belief that I could do anything. Parents, you allowed us to write our own story with the belief and understanding that this next chapter in our lives comes with more responsibility and independence than ever before. You’ve packed our tool kits with the essential life components and now it’s time to let us go. Because of this, I am confident we all can make it! And to our teachers, administrators and support staff: We too, owe you a debt of gratitude. I have learned patience, perseverance and the ability to dust myself off, pick up the pieces and move forward. Thirteen years of public education have taught us more than we could have ever expected. This may be the last time we see our teachers’ smiling faces. Actually, that’s probably why you’re all smiling. Now, my fellow graduates, look how far we’ve come. We’ve come to the end of

folk songs with her sister, Rosanne. But it was in 1972 that Kalen discovered her true passion — bluegrass! Upon first hearing bluegrass at Paul’s Saloon in San Francisco, Kalen jumped in with both feet, immediately acquiring a mandolin, fiddle, banjo and guitar and attempting to play them. From that time until she met Warren Huscroft in 2006, Kalen listened to and played only bluegrass. Then she got the phone call that changed her musical life forever. Guitarist Warren Huscroft, born and raised in Creston, was a member of popular teen band The Ambassadors in the ’60s, many times winner of Kootenay battles of the bands. Warren and Erickson have each played with the late keyboardist, Jack Velker. Warren met Jack at Mount Royal Junior College in Alberta, back in their teenage years. Jack later moved to Creston where he joined The Ambassadors. Warren spent much time in the Vancouver area in

the early days, playing and recording with several bands, the most popular of which was Amethyst. Back in Creston with his family, Warren played in several bands until 1987, most notably Summit and Deja Vue. He then retired from playing until 2006 when he was asked to reunite The Ambassadors band for a local class reunion (class of ’66). Original members of The Ambassadors were eager to reunite; unfortunately Jack Velker (keyboardist) was unable to make it. On a tip, Warren called Kalen and asked her if she would be willing to fill in. Kalen agreed, put bluegrass aside, and learned to play classic rock and roll (which she had missed in her teenage years, being too busy playing Beethoven and Debussy).

just the first journey our lives have taken us on. And what a long journey it has been. It seems like ages ago since Grade 8, when the only friends we had were confined to the 25 kids in our “pods”. Since then, we’ve not only expanded our social horizons, whether that was by coming out of your shell at school or gaining 200 more Facebook friends, but we’ve learned one valuable piece of advice, that “hallways are for walking.” We’ve all grown together. We’ve laughed, played, cried and partied together. And today we celebrate together. For those of us who were born and raised here, and for those of you who joined the Class of 2012 along the way, you know that our community has also helped to make us better citizens, better equipped to appreciate our small town and the benefits of being raised in rural British Columbia. I am looking forward to the lights and sights of the big city and what the rest of the world can offer, but will always be grateful for the lessons learned in this small town. I was scared that my words today weren’t going to be motivational enough, inspirational enough. All I really want is for someone to feel something from my speech. I’d like to take a moment… to ask something of you. I ask that, everyone here, raise your right hand. Now on the count of three, place it on the shoulder of the person next to you. 1-2-3. OK, you can remove your hands. Now I can officially say the audience has been touched by my speech. So, graduates, it’s time for us to forge new paths, which will lead us in all different directions imaginable. They may lead us to our doctorates and PhDs, to

the top of law firms or to Shady Acres Trailer Park. But wherever they lead to, never limit yourself from the endless opportunities that are out there. Whichever path we choose, they all take us on the worthwhile journey of life, and all we can hope is that one day they’ll lead us back to the warmth and security of our humble hometown, Creston. I want to share with you my favourite quote, a quote by Winston Churchill: “Sure I am this day we are masters of our fate, that the task which has been set before us is not above our strength; that its pangs and toils are not beyond our endurance. As long as we have faith in our own cause and an unconquerable will to win, victory will not be denied us.” Today is just one beginning among a series of beginnings, and after we end high school, we start fresh. Grads, we have nothing holding us back; only our dreams and conviction pushing us forward. The world doesn’t owe you anything. So go out there and work for what you want. Fall down and get back up. Embrace the past, be grateful for it, learn from it and move on. Be the person you’ve always wanted to be, and whatever you do, be sure to do it passionately. … Because remember, life is now and the world is ours.” May the road rise up to meet you May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

THANK YOU

With sincere appreciation

to our organizers - Mike, Bruce and the guys and gals of the Memorial Ride who braved the elements and made the run to Riondel (there’s no sugar cookies in this bunch!) Despite the weather, they never let a few huge raindrops or the claps of the real thing (thunder) deter them. Somewhere over the Great Divide, Doug was having a good laugh but feeling mighty proud of the honour. May you all have sunshine, blue skies and miles of smiles ahead of you. To the golf buds from the Riondel GC who weathered the downpours to meet up with us - may your rounds be lled with low scores and, of course, plenty of laughs!

With heartfelt thanks to all... Liz Hale

Thank You A most heartfelt thank you to everyone who gathered to meet our little son Kelechi Elemuo. A special thank you to Marilin Grahn and Judy Gadicke who organized and hosted the baby shower in honor of our son. We are overwhelmed with your kindness and generosity, and wish to thank you for making us feel so welcome in our new home in Canada. Dr. Raphael and Mmathapelo Elemuo
