A solemn reminder Legion president ‘humbled’ by Remembrance Day turnout

Gaven Crites Free Press

Much like the innumerable ceremonies in communities across the country on Monday, the gathering in 100 Mile House on Nov. 11 was a solemn one. Hundreds crowded the 100 Mile Community Hall, lined its walls, even stood in the cold outside its doors, as a Remembrance Day ceremony, organized by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #260, reminded folks about the sacrifice, loss and pain of wars, Bob Wangensteen past and present. The Eclectica Community Choir sang throughout the hour-long observance, pausing for speeches and two minutes of silence. Visible in the crowd during that time were somber moments of heartfelt reflection. A parade down Birch Avenue preceded the ceremony. Spectators watched quietly and snapped the occasional photo before following the marchers into the hall. Branch #260 president Bob Wangensteen said he was humbled and honoured by the turnout. Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett also addressed the crowd. She talked about “freedoms we sometimes forget to be thankful for” and how “we’re lucky” to have Canadians today willing to defend them. “We have so much to be thankful for,” Barnett added. “Don’t forget the veterans who need our help.”

Bridal gown abandoned

Carole Rooney Free Press

Did you have a spring or early summer wedding and then lose your gown? 100 Mile Laundromat owner Andrew Hofmarks is in a quandary over how to find the owner of an abandoned wedding dress dropped off about five months ago. Hofmarks says he had stepped out of the laundromat briefly, and upon his return, found the dress in a zippered protective bag laying on one of the tables. There was no note, so he awaited instructions to come in regarding what its owner wanted done with the dress, Hofmarks explains. After a time, he went ahead and cleaned the dress, thinking

the owner must have intended that service surely and would not leave it indefinitely. However, summer stretched on and no one came back for it, so now that winter is approaching, Hofmarks says he is going to pull the plug on storing the abandoned dress at the end of November.

“I could sell it, but I don’t want to do that. So, I thought I’d give it away, but then decided I’ll give them one more

The 70 Mile House and Area Community Funds Society held a meeting at the Seventy Mile Access Centre (SMAC) on Nov. 2 to go over the newly formed society, which is registered with the Kamloops Foundation. The purpose of the society is to provide support and incentives for individuals to enhance their community by furthering their education. The catchment area includes North Bonaparte Road to Pressy Lake, 70 Mile House, Green Lake and Watch Lake residents. The fund was formed because people wanted a legacy for the 70 Mile House School, which later became SMAC. Anyone can contribute to this worthwhile cause and the society executive hopes donations will become tax deductible in the months to come. Society executive members are as follows: president Gail Mosley; treasurer Robin Rusaw;

Good start, bad finish

Gaven Crites Free Press

The Lac la Hache Tomahawks took the third period off and the Quesnel Kangaroos made them pay for it. Quesnel notched six goals in the final 20 minutes on their way to a 10-2 rout of Lac la Hache on home ice on Nov. 9. “We didn’t play hockey in the third period,” says Tomahawks coach Al Navrot. When the two teams met on Oct. 12 in Lac la Hache, it was the Tomahawks winning 6-2. Lac la Hache has struggled with a small roster on the road this season, but Navrot doesn’t think that was the case in Quesnel. “We had enough depth (in the line up).

I think part of it may be conditioning and being able to play stronger defensively. It’s one of our weak points. Offensively, we have the power.” The game was tied 2-2 after one period. Wilfred Robbins and Ty Moses found the back of the net for Lac la Hache. Assists went to Robin Gilbert, Antoine Sargeant, Anthony Sellars and Drew Rose. Lac la Hache is 2-5 this season, but both wins came against teams with winning records. “There are strong teams (in the Central Interior Hockey League), but everyone is getting beat,” Navrot says. “I have faith in my team. I have no doubts.” The senior men’s hockey team recently added two players –

Kenneth Schmidt and Walter Schmidt from Fraser Lake, two “big, strong and physical guys” – that should be difference makers going forward, the coach adds. Lac la Hache is hosting the Williams Lake Stampeders, division rivals, at the Rolf Zeis Memorial Arena on Nov. 23 and Nov. 24.

This grey raven spotted in the Donex parking lot on Nov. 9 was a bit of a déjà vu for those who saw a similarly coloured bird last February that caused quite a bit of talk about town. The odd colouration of the raven is probably due to a phenomenon called leucism, which may revert to their typical colour after molting. It is similar in appearance to the European Hooded crow.

CMHA-SC receives funding for Soupe de Tour program

The $5,000 being awarded to Canadian Mental Health Association-South Cariboo (CMHA-SC) branch is coming from the Williams Lake and District Credit Union’s (WLDCU) Community Investment Fund. The money will be used to support the CMHA-SC’s Soupe de Tour – a mobile hot meal program – which provides nutritious food to local individuals and families struggling with poverty, says CMHASC acting executive director Susann Collins. The money will help buy the groceries and supplies used to make the soup for this program, she adds. The WLCCU’s Community Investment Fund supports local nonprofit organizations and community groups with projects and initiatives that contribute to economic revitalization and improved quality of life, while breaking down barriers in order to help families achieve economic success and enhanced quality of life. The CMHA-SC, in partnership with a group of dedicated volunteers, has prepared and delivered thousands of servings of hot, nourishing soup since the program began several years ago, Collins says. This year-round program will be broadened to serve the increasing numbers of people

accessing the service due to the continuing challenging economic times, she adds. “Our staff and volunteers deliver food weekly, or on alternate weeks, to the 100 Mile Food Bank and Loaves & Fishes Outreach. The Soupe de Tour program

also provides soup on an ongoing basis to the 100 Mile & District Women’s Centre and to the Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre.” The soup is also made available to CMHASC’s poverty support programs – Homeless

Outreach program, and Extreme Weather Response Shelter, Collins explains. “We thank the Williams Lake and District Credit Union for awarding us this muchneeded funding and we’re very grateful for their kind generosity.”

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, your approach to a problem is not working. It could be time to take an entirely new approach and see if this produces results. Be patient with this new approach. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Don’t be surprised if a busy week finds you dog tired come the weekend, Cancer. Use the time off to recharge your batteries on this well-deserved break. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Few things can hold your interest this week, Leo. Although friends try, they can’t seem to keep you focused on anything. Expect to jump from task to task this week. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, an unexpected consequence appears this week and you are caught completely off guard. Don’t let others see your surprise. Just roll with the punches. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, a spark of ingenuity hits you out of the blue and you know just how to put that inspiration to good use. Set your plan in motion as soon as you are able. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, after a few hectic weeks at home and at the office, now is the ideal time for a vacation. Cast all responsibilities aside and enjoy some rest and relaxation.
