Employers invited to promote fair BusinEss spotlight Leah Blain Local merchants are asked to challenge their employees to enter individually or as a team in this year’s Salmon Arm Fair. Celebrate the fair’s 120 anniversary and showcase your creative talents by entering a lego display of 120 pieces or less. Or decorate a mason jar to honour Canada’s 150 birthday. Fair administrator Ronnalee McMahon suggests business owners could award special prizes to employees with the most exhibits. Registration fees for the 120th and 150th exhibitors are waived. Another ideas for those who know all about bagged lunches - enter the special “balanced brown bag work lunch” class. For the balanced brown bag work lunch, see division A2, class 71 for further details. (This division was added later and isn’t in the printed books). The fair book is available on line at http:// www.salmonarmfair. com/safclasses.html

Marketplace Mall

Fifteen years ago Terry Barker built Marketplace Mall in Blind Bay. A couple of weeks ago he sold it to a family, a father and two sons, from Vancouver. “It’s been great and the tenants have been great, and it’s a great asset to the area,” says Barker. “I wish the new guys all the best. I’m sure they’ll be good.” Marketplace Mall, with its fun country-style look, has 21 units.

Grand upgrade

The Salmar Grand Theatre is getting a bit of a makeover. “We’ve planned to redo the back of the building by the parking lot. We’re completely making it with new exits, lights, and glass doors. It’s going to be a really nice feature,” says Salmar general manager Daila Duford. “We’re going to have a wheelchair

ramp so people can exit through the back and make the crowd flow easier.” After that is completed, the next project is the lobby expansion, and the final phase of the three phase upgrade is the concession, which will also be expanded. “The covered walkway will become part of the lobby so there will be more room and it won’t be so clogged up.” The timeline for all three projects is one year. “We are super excited. This building has been here for 20 years and it needs some freshening up.”

2006 PORSCHE 911 CARRERA Only 58,510 Kms Auto

Carina was one of the gold medal winners with the Salmon Arm Bocce Team at the 2017 SOBC Summer Games in early July. She enjoyed it all — the bus ride, all the people, being part of a team, learning about competition, meeting new friends, the awards, the dance and having friends and relatives come to watch. When she found out they had won the Gold, she was very emotional with tears of happiness in her eyes. Her next highlight this summer is a week at camp.
