Operation Christmas Child submitted by Carmen Miller

Operation Christmas Child is a handson project that brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoeboxes. It is one way to remind children suffering as a result of war, poverty, famine, disease and disaster that they are loved and not forgotten. Toys, Hygiene items, school supplies and other items are packed. Each year millions of shoeboxes are packed with gifts by people in Canada and nine other “sending” countries, and given to children in more than 100 “receiving” countries. 2018 World: 10,623,776 | Canada: 517,437 BC: 66,169 | Miller’s Cabin: 55 Miller’s Boutique and The Pet Vault is once again promoting this amazing gift of love.

Council Meeting Highlights October 8, 2019 submitted by Village of Chase

Council held a regular meeting on Tuesday, October 8, 2019. Eight members of the public were in attendance. Council heard from Hazel Christie, Registered Professional Planner, regarding the importance of having a current Official Community Plan which provides guidance for Council in making many different types of decisions for the community. Ms. Christie explained that the Village’s existing OCP is from 2002 and relying on the information in a document this old, is much like using dial-up internet instead of the current service available. In order for a plan to be useful, meaningful and based on community input, she recommends that Council endeavour to get the OCP overhauled to meet current legislative, environmental and social needs. Council heard from the Secretary of the Chase Lions Club, Karen Bassett, regarding the lease of the RV Park to the Lions Club for two years. She read from a letter stating that: •

Because Council is only providing a two year lease, the Lions Club will not be doing any upgrades to the RV park during that term

Chamber News submitted by Chase Chamber

On September 4th a Special General Meeting was held to discuss the future of the Chamber. The Board is currently seeking direction from membership on what direction the Chamber should move, as efforts and activities (such as workshops, promotions, and dinner meeting) over the past couple of years have had minimal response or engagement. Another key piece of the dialogue is the challenges of retaining a Executive Director for the Chamber, especially given the limited hours and compensation available. Based on feedback from members and what was shared at the SGM, the Board is proposing to shift the Chamber's focus towards tourism services in a hope that increased resources, marketing, and positive experiences will translate into customer growth and business expansion for Chamber members and the overall community. The Chamber has unofficially lead visitor services for many years and the Board believes that this responsibility needs to be more inclusive of other interested parties and organizations through the Tourism Chase Society. As host of the Society,

the Chamber can access additional grants that it is not currently eligible for under the Board of Trade Act, and it will also allow the Society to utilize the Chamber’s existing relationships and funding agreements. Potential areas that can immediately be addressed include assembling a multi-stakeholder board for the Society, updating the Town Map Board, addressing out-date or missing signage throughout the village, and conducting a review of the Tourism GAP analysis from earlier years. This less direct path to economic development may help the Chamber engage more members and citizens, and help elevate a level of pride within the community. One of the first steps on this path is the hiring of the new Visitor Centre Manager, Debby Mould, who will be responsible for the day to day operations of the Visitor Centre and tourism related services. If you are interested in shaping the future of tourism services in Chase, or have any comments on this direction the Board is exploring, please reach out to any Board member or email admin@

Chasing the Heat submitted by Scott Koch, Chase Heat

Last weekend an anomaly with the local pucksters only playing one game. To make up for that, Lana Adamson and friends held the 1st “Beat the Heat” 5K challenge Sunday the 5th. With bibs on and a variety of footwear including runners, walkers and sneakers (cheaters?) the gathered ran off from Memorial Park alongside two dozen HEAT players. Everyone came back winners, but the best of the best was Desiree Fairbrother female category, Ethan Gremaud male and Xander Denis the quickest player. The evening before, the 4th of October, the Chase HEAT played a very entertaining game versus the Fernie GHOSTRIDERS. Bus legs were non existant as the visitors roared off to a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes. Coach Brad Fox apparently said very little to his troops and the message was delivered loud and clear. The 2nd period saw a different local squad as they evened the contest at 2-2 after 40. Breckin Erichuk got the ball rolling from Tyson Lampreau and Evan Vinterlik. 11 minutes later on the man advantage hard working Gavin Mattey fired a beauty past the Rider keeper from Matthew Poole and Colton Nikiforuk. In the 3rd Moose Jaw’s Hayden Wiebe from Brandon Gremaud and Luke Recchi put the HEAT in the lead. However, the Ghosts busted loose for an even up tally and after regulation play it was 3-3. So off to sudden death 4 on 4 high speed mayhem with neither team accomplishing the elusive goal. After 60 seconds of catch your breath, guzzle some water and whack your buddy on the shinguards it was time for 3 on 3 sudden death. The fans were on the edge of their seats, you could cut the tension in the chilly arena and then the puck dropped...11 seconds later Erichuk from Cam Watson dipsy doodled and placed the winner in the visitor’s net. Brand spanking new tender Vince Benedetto from Edmonton denied 26 of 29 shots in his flashy debut for the win and the game puck. The Fernie GHOSTRIDERS received a point from the regulation time tie and then did two big favours for the HEAT. They beat the 100 Mile House WRANGLERS on Saturday and followed that up with a Sunday smackdown of the Storm from Kamloops. Heat Beat: Aaron Hill was traded to the Osoyoos Coyotes for a player development fee and joins former teammate Owen Lee. The HEAT wish those two classy young fellas all the best with their new team. The HEAT staff continue to tinker in their workshop. Have you ever wanted to win some money? Not only can you win through the 50/50 at the games but this season we are also running a Progressive 50/50 all season long! All that money will leave such a succulent sound. This weekend the HEAT are playing in Spokane Washington and against the Beaver Valley NIGHTHAWKS in Montrose BC. You can watch on Next home action, Friday night the 18th versus the Kamloops STORM.
