Rotary club awarded for breakfast program BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

“When I’m hungry I can’t make my brain think about learning. It only thinks about food.” With those words, a second grade student sums up why members of the Creston Valley Rotary Club and their spouses have volunteered to prepare breakfast for students at Erickson Elementary School for the past seven years. The breakfast program actually began 14 years ago under the leadership of Marje Bridgman, then a school child care worker. “We brought in a loaf of bread a couple of times a week to help feed kids who we knew came to school hungry,” Bridgman said. The program really took off seven years later when she noticed an article in Canadian Living magazine. “The story talked about a Breakfast for Learning program that provides funds for meals in schools,” Bridgman said last week. “To apply, we needed to show community support, so I asked my husband, Bill, if his Rotary club would help out.” And, every school day morning since, Creston Valley Rotary Club members, spouses and supporters have been faithfully preparing and serving toast, grilled cheese sandwiches, eggs, pancakes, smoothies, fruit juice, fruit and milk.

RCMP meet goals for fourth quarter BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

Lorne Eckersley photo

(Back row, from left) Erickson Elementay School breakfast volunteers Al Garrecht, Mike Stutter, Walt Reider, Bill Pfeifer, Dorothy Pfeifer, Vern Lee, Marje Bridgman, Fay Lee, principal Nancy Devuono, George Green, Gordon Rodney, Tim Park, Patricia Colwell, Ruth Handy, Dave Handy and child care worker Marj McClure with students (front row, from left) Marcie Blackmore, Ashley Daignault, Miah Armitage, Morganne McClure, Keira Warner and Emily Rodenstein.


From page 1 “We have always tried to serve nutritious food that is easily prepared and that the children enjoy,” Bridgman added. Rotarian Gordon Rodney has been volunteering since his club became involved in 2004. “We enjoy the kids and the kids enjoy us — they are like replacements for our grandchildren who might not live here,” he said. “I love the energy the students bring into the room. … Any time there is fun involved in a project, it’s easy to keep it going.” Rodney recalled a boy walking up to the serving counter one morning. “I’ll have pancakes and eggs,” he announced. “We’re serving toast this morning,” Rodney said. “Do you want some?” “Yeah,” the disappointed youngster said, looking down at his feet. Rodney buttered the toast, sprinkled it with cinnamon and sugar, then handed the plate to the boy, who refused to look up. The student took the plate, lowered it into his line of vision, then handed it back to Rodney. “You missed a spot,” he said. Rodney also laughs as he recalls the time he mistook a jar of iced tea mix for cinnamon and sugar. And another time when he ran a loaded dishwasher without taking the soap out of its plastic package. At the next Rotary club meeting he was presented with a similar soap package, mounted on a plaque. Club member Dave Handy said he and his wife, Ruth, volunteer every Friday, which is pancake day. “Some days it’s hard to get up, but we live nearby and walk over to the school,” he said. “When the kids start Creston Valley Radio

walking in it just makes our day.” “The Rotarians and spouses are such great people,” said principal Nancy DeVuono. “In my experience, it is very unusual that a program run by volunteers just keeps going and going.” Earlier this year, DeVuono nominated the Creston Valley Rotary Club for a BC Principals’ and Vice Principals’ Association Partnership Award. Her nomination bid was successful and Rotary representatives were invited to attend an awards banquet in Vancouver in early May. In her nomination, she wrote,” The Creston Valley Rotary Club provides two services to Creston area students to feed body and mind. At Erickson Elementary School the students are treated to a hot breakfast every day of the week... “In the Erickson Breakfast Program, our Rotary volunteers prepare, serve and clean up; provide necessary equipment like blenders and griddles and start our students off with a heartfelt, ‘Have a great day!’ They have been supporting the Erickson Breakfast Program for more than seven years; in spite of inclement weather and busy personal schedules, they arrive without fail at 7:45 a.m. and have breakfast ready to go every single school day for our first bus students at 8 a.m. Their menu includes toast, grilled cheese, eggs, pancakes, smoothies, fruit, juice and milk — all served with a smile.” The Erickson breakfast program is supported by funds from the Parent Advisory Council (PAC), Creston Valley Gleaners Society and other organizations and individuals, in addition to Breakfast for Learning. In fact, a parent, Michelle Christie, has taken over preparation of the Wednesday morning smoothies. “Most of these volunteers are retired members of our community,” Devuono

said. “They have established a special bond with our students. They know most of the students by name, ask them about their schoolwork and special interests and entertain them with riddles, brain teasers and stories — all in the time it takes to butter a piece of toast. One of our special needs students, in particular, looks forward eagerly to her ‘second breakfast’ and has learned to make eye contact and utilize her electronic communication device to say ‘Good morning’ and ‘Thank you’. In a time when many of our children do not have a significant elder in their lives to make them feel important, the attention they receive from our Rotary volunteers is especially impactful. “This Rotary group not only feeds the students’ bodies, they feed their minds as well. In addition to supporting our breakfast program, they have established a local program where all Grade 3 and Grade 5 students in the Creston area receive a personalized dictionary and thesaurus, respectively. In the flyleaf students can read the Rotary motto: The Four Way Test (of all the things we think, say or do): 1. Is it the truth? 2. Is it fair to all concerned? 3. Will it build good will and better friendships? 4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned? “As they present the books to each child, the volunteers explain the importance of reading and of living a life of integrity and service.” “I always get a kick out of how different the boys and girls are,” Rodney said. “The girls are always so prim and proper and the boys are just boys — rambunctious and always on the go.” “The breakfast program is a success, I think, because it is run by volunteers,” DeVuono said. “When volunteers show how committed they are, it makes it easier for other groups and individuals to make their own contributions.”

MARITIMES BY MOTORCOACH Several Tours to Choose From

Staff Sgt. Gord Stewart has delivered his final RCMP quarterly report to Creston town council. His tenure as commanding officer ends in June, when his replacement, Staff Sgt. Bob Gollan arrives from Alberta. With the RCMP fiscal year ending on March 31, the report also included fiscal year-end statistics. “This year, the total number of calls for service increased to 3,891 from 2009-2010’s total of 3,684,” Stewart said. “In large part, this increase is attributable to the enhanced proactive efforts of the detachment, particularly in the areas of traffic enforcement, impaired driving in investigations and drug enforcement efforts.” Of the 772 calls for service in the fourth quarter, 421 originated within Creston and the others were spread among Regional District of Central Kootenay Areas A, B and C. The later winter and early spring months are traditionally the quietest time of the year for police calls, Stewart said. In his report, Stewart summarized his detachment’s success in reaching goals for the year in a number of areas: Traffic safety Goal: Increase number of impaired driving charges to 30. Final total: 50. Goal: Increase number of road checkshops to 12. Final total: 15 Police visibility Goal: Increase patrols to high call volume areas by 25. Final total: 87 Goal: Make 10 bicycle or foot patrols in downtown Creston. Final total: 10 Youth education Goal: Increase number of programs delivered to local youth to nine. Final total: 10. Target organized crime Goal: Increase number of confidential sources to 3. Final total: 7. Goal: Increase number of members to write search warrants to 50 per cent of members. Final total: 60 per cent. Communications Goal: Provide four proactive policing stories to local media. Final total: 11. Goal: Increase number of press releases on detachment activities to 16. Final total: 32. Crime reduction Goal: Develop intelligence on 22 prolific offenders. Final total: 11. Goal: Conduct curfew checks on 100 per cent of prolific offenders with curfews. Final total: 60 per cent. First Nations Goal: Increase formal reporting to Lower Kootenay Band to 12. Final total: 12. Goal: Meet regularly with band chief and council 12 times. Final total: 10. “I think that these measurements are a reflection of a group of police officers who are committed to serving our community well,” Stewart said. “It has been a please to be part of the Creston detachment for these past three years.” Stewart assumes duties in a new position in Kelowna when Gollan takes command of the Creston detachment later this month.

Creston RCMP opened 93 new files from June 6-12, Staff Sgt. Gord Stewart said on Monday. One resulted when Wynndel firefighters learned that where there is fire, there is also smoke. A Wynndel homeowner came close to extinguishing a fire in his garage with a garden hose on Friday afternoon. Close wasn’t quite enough, though. Once the WynndelLakeview Fire Department finished putting the fire out, volunteers found the building housed a marijuana grow-op. Creston RCMP obtained a search warrant under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and the subsequent investigation revealed that the garage housed more than 400 plants in various stages of growth. A 42-year-old male was arrested on the scene and was later released with a court date pending. He faces charges of production of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking. In other police news, nine files came from a renewed effort to track people with court-ordered curfews. Stewart said the Creston detachment has designed a new system of keeping track of offenders who have been ordered by the courts to keep a curfew. Frustrated at statistics for the last fiscal year that indicated only modest success in tracking the offenders, Stewart has instituted a new approach in which RCMP constables will be assigned files, making it their responsibility

to conduct regular curfew checks.

A night of stars

The stars were shining brightly in Creston on Saturday night. To be honest, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t notice whether the sky was clouded over â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the stars that grabbed my attention were all indoors at the grand soiree put on by the Creston Kootenay Foundation (CKF). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a long, slow process to create a community foundation that generates sufficient funds to make a big difference in the area it serves. In the 17 years of its existence, the CKF has grown to hold about $650,000 in funds, according to spokesman Larry Brierley. With recent interest rates at record lows, the fund doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reap a huge return on its investments (which, I assume, are conservative and as safe as possible). The simple fact is, though, that the funds dispersed, inevitably in pretty small amounts, make a huge difference in a community that is used to operating on a shoestring budget. A few hundred bucks, placed in the hands of creative, dedicated volunteers, can have a large impact on the lives of our friends and neighbours. That message hit home when those in attendance on Saturday were shown a documentary produced by the remarkable Creston Film Group. Representatives of numerous organizations appeared on the screen to explain how CFK disbursements were used and to express their gratitude. If the CFK has struggled to establish a sufficiently large perpetual fund, it should take heart in Saturday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event. More than 200 people ponied up $50 a head to attend and many of them bid on silent auction items donated by our

Not alone in fear of future

To the Editor: I, too, have the same fears about my country that Peter Hepher expressed so profoundly in his letter to the editor (“Election raises fear”, May 12 Advance, page 7). The politics of control in the next four years of Harperland, a majority government and a non-elected Senate, stacked by Harper with his own appointees, is frightening. But we shall overcome; our Canada is too precious to be ruled by the big corporate agenda and their front man, Stephen Harper. It will be more important than ever that we all, individually or with nongovernment organizations, stand up and fight for democracy to prevail. With Harper’s terrible record on environmental neglect, Greenpeace, the David Suzuki Foundation and all the other environmental organization need our active support more than ever. It is easy to get depressed, discouraged and angry about all the negative things happening. We do have to remember that as grim as it all may seem, that this is not the whole picture. There is another option. We have the power to create change, step by step, on our own, in our fami-

lies and in our communities. We must make the change for our benefit, and for those we love and for future generations. Worldwide, millions of people are switching to renewable energy as oil spills, nuclear energy and climate change wreak havoc. Local, small-scale food production is growing and solutions like community-supported agriculture are found as companies like Monsanto, Nestle and other wreak havoc on our food supply. Our valley is full of opportunities and more and more farmers and market gardeners are responding. More people want locally-grown food, grown and produced without poison. We will change the world, bit by bit, because we must for a better, cleaner and greener world, for sustainability and for peace. Henry Dahle Creston

Wishing kbest Booour y LE to country T T BO IVE

To the Editor: DR I would like to begin my letter by wishing a happy birthday to a most beautiful lady, who will be turning 144 years young on July 1. And her name is

— you guessed it — Canada. She truly is a lovely and unique country, in which we all love and respect her very much, a real sweetheart indeed. Also, never forget the legacy of Sir John A. MacDonald (1815-1891), our nation’s first prime minister and the “Father of Confederation”, because if it wasn’t for his foresight and vision, Canada would not exist! To change topics, my philosophy is this: I believe the gun registry should be scrapped (despite the fact I don’t own a shotgun, rifle or handgun), when that $1 billion spent on it could have been used to fight poverty, hunger and illiteracy. It is also imperative to maintain a constant vigilance against any type of extremism and ideology, whether it be foreign or domestic, as this would strengthen national unity. Finally, I also believe in equality for all, both men and women. Not bed for someone who was originally an NDP supporter for a few years, until the 1980s, when I became Conservative (for reasons of my own). In conclusion, it is important to enjoy every minute of every day, because life is too short to be angry, miserable, cranky and cynical. What the world needs is more optimism, faith and compassion. Anyway, everyone take care, keep thinking positively, have a great summer, see you at the festivities on Canada Day and may God bless! Allan Clement Creston

Summer is a time for reading

Savour the Words is the theme of this year’s summer reading program for kids between the ages of five and 11. We have two summer students and a literacy assistant putting together the program for this year, and July 5 is week one with the program ending the week of Aug. 18. You can register in the library from June 16-July 4. Check the library website for details and a link directly to the summer reading club, where participants can get a jump on the suggested reading list and start their reading logs. You can also phone the library for more information and to get your young readers on the list. The Readers are Leaders program, which is year-round in the library, is looking for adult summer readers to work with primary and elementary students who want to keep up their reading skills over the summer break. Call the library or email crestonreaders@ if you have some time to

Book your Bottle Drive, a great idea for a spare and would like to help a student. FUND time lunch perfectly between rain showIf you know of a student who would ers and tried out the picnic table quite RAISER! benefit from reading help over the summer, contact the library or email We will set up an

@ Your Library Ann Day hour each week for the young readers to get some practice and at the same time, spend some time in the library getting to know what might be available to them. The door from the library to the garden is now open and all we need is weather conducive to reading outdoors. Last week, a staff member managed to

successfully. A huge thank you goes to Fred; he has been keeping the garden weed free and growing with some fine additions from his nursery. The library has been given three books by local authors, all nominees for the One Book One Kootenay program initiated by the Kootenay Library Federation. Catalogued and on display and available to patrons are Far From Botany Bay, historical fiction by Rossland’s Rosa Jordan, Living in the Shadow of Fisher Peak, also a work of historical fiction by Cranbrook’s Keith Powell, and Eileen Delehanty Pearke’s The Glass Seed. Show your support of local writers by going to and registering. You will also find information on the writers and on the past One Book One Kootenay. Ann Day is the chief librarian at the Creston and District Public Library.

Road trip explores Washington

This column comes to you from the road as we toodle around in northeast Washington doing one of our favourite forms of recreation — camping and kayaking with a touch of fishing thrown in when the opportunity presents itself. This time, however, we never did get the kayaks off the top of the camper, and while we also never bought a short-term fishing license, we did scout out some awesome lakes and filed them away for future reference. For the most part, and in order to maintain the work-life balance that is so important in today’s ultra-fast pace (Hey, I sent that email 30 seconds ago — why haven’t you answered?), we tend to do shorter mini-vacations and more often in an easily drivable radius around our

lovely valley rather than being away two or three weeks at a pop. Maybe subconsciously, I remember the words of my first boss in my teen years who advised if the place could run without you for a couple weeks, it probably

From the Centre Neil Ostafichuk

could run without you at all. Try that nowadays and see where labour standards takes you… Anyway, having

spent many years exploring in the radius above the 49th parallel, we have started exploring southwards and, frankly, other than signage, funny looking money and maybe a weird accent, you would be hard pressed to say what country you would be in. Avid fans of history, we tend to check out museums and stack them up against our great one here that Tammy Hardwick and others have done an awesome job with. For instance, we checked out Molson, which is a semi-ghost town (population 21) a mile-anda-half south of the Canadian border below Osoyoos. (We tried to find Kokanee first as part of our due diligence but failed). See ROAD, page 8 7

Former Mountie signing at Black Bear Road trip SUBMITTED

Former RCMP sergeant and author of Policing the Fringe: The Curious Life of a Small-Town Mountie, Charles Scheideman, is back with more hilarious, tragic

and outrageous stories from his 27 years of patrolling the small communities of the interior of British Columbia, including the Kootenay region. Scheideman will give a book signing for his new collection of police stories, Tragedy on Jackass Mountain: More Stories from a Small-Town Mountie, at Black Bear Books in Creston on June 23 from 10-11 a.m.

This new book is full of characters like the 14-year-old from Creston who escaped from a youth detention centre near Nanaimo in 1963, travelled from Vancouver Island to the mainland and through the Okanagan Valley, then the West Kootenay, before stealing an airplane from the Salmo “golf-port” and inevitably crashing it in his brave, untrained attempt to fly over the mountains back home to Creston. Or the lone officer who took on three legendary hard-fighting drunks, earning him the respect of the citizens of Prince George, including the louts he single-handedly flattened. Here, too, are stories conveying the sad truth and tragic consequences of all-toocommon alcohol abuse, such as when an innocent man survived an alcohol-induced multi-vehicle accident on Jackass Mountain — twice — only to be taken by a determined Grim Reaper as he aided another motorist. Scheideman illustrates that “fate looks after some of us” in another story where the extremely drunk driver and passengers of a violent single car accident miraculously survive. This book bristles with unforgettable stories about the author’s 27 years working on the RCMP’s frontlines and leaves the reader with renewed admiration and wonder for the men and women

who uphold the law in some of B.C.’s more lawless regions. Scheideman grew up on a farm near Stony Plain, Alta., and joined the RCMP when he was 21, serving in seven different communities in rural British Columbia. After leaving the force in 1989, he worked for the British Columbia

government in Victoria, where he still lives with his wife, Patricia. This free event was made possible with help from the Canada Council for the Arts. For more information on Charles Scheideman’s book signing, please contact Black Bear Books at 250-428-2711.

Smalltown Revival visiting Sirdar SUBMITTED Touring Western Canada in support of its new album, Music From Home, John Jenkins’ Smalltown Revival will play at the Sirdar Pub and Grill on June 23. The band features piano, violin, electric bass, harmonica, acoustic guitar, foot drumming and four vocalists “laying down danceable rhythms like its some kind of modern day hoedown.” Together, the members produce a down home, deep-woods,

genuine and pure Kootenay mountain sound — dubbed “swinging mountain music”. Smalltown Revival’s June 23 concert begins at 9 p.m. Admis-

sion is $8. For more information, visit

From page 7 It was co-founded by the Canadian brewing magnate John Molson around the turn of the century and is one of many examples of the blurring of the border back and forth in earlier times. We also spent a fair bit of time along Lake Roosevelt towards the Grand Coulee Dam, where you see the dance that has to be done with water levels at various dams in order to guess what is coming down the pipe once, and how fast, the snow leaves the mountains in Canada. The lake was as low as I have ever seen it — down 80 or so feet and a good half a kilometre of sand exposed as you trek for the water’s edge — reminiscent of a scene from Lawrence of Arabia as I stumbled mindlessly over the dunes towards salvation of cool clear water. OK, maybe I need to work out more, but as we drove back beside the swollen Kootenay River through Bonners Ferry and back home, it was amazing to think that the same water would be coming up against the Grand Coulee Dam, filling up Lake Roosevelt after its journey through Kootenay Lake, many assorted dams and the Columbia River. Neil Ostafichuk is the recreation supervisor at the Creston and District Community Complex.

We met Stuart a few months back when he came to PAWS as a stray. Since that time he was found by his owner, went home, and now has just recently been surrendered to PAWS due to unforeseen circumstances. He is a lovely purebred Husky with crazy blue eyes and a gentle temperment. Stuart is about 9 years old and is neutered.

Air cadets celebrate end of training year 904 KOOTENAI AIR CADETS

The 904 Kootenai Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron celebrated the end of its training year on June 1, with their

annual ceremonial review (ACR), a parade dedicated to celebrating the achievements of the cadets over the past year.

Air Cadets are youth aged 12-18 who learn about being good citizens, leadership skills, leading a physically active lifestyle, and the activities of the Canadian Forces. Extracurricular activities

offered by the Creston squadron include sports, campouts and the flight simulator program. The 904 squadron also recently took a trip to Victoria

and toured the Canadian Coast Guard, Esquimalt Dockyard, Royal BC Museum and more. The squadron, currently parading with nine cadets, is looking for new members and adult staff to start in September for their next training year. Adult staff are members of the community aged 19-64 years old who take an interest in the development of the cadets in these areas, and can either work as civilian instructors or join the Cadet Instructors Cadre, the branch of the Canadian Forces that administers and supervises the cadet program. Royal Canadian Air Cadets is a national youth program jointly sponsored by the Department of National Defence/Canadian Forces and the Air Cadet League of Canada. Cadets parade yearly from September to June. For general information on Air Cadets, or becoming an adult supervisor, please visit For more information on 904 Kootenai Squadron, please visit www. or call Arnold Schultz at 250-4287528.

deportations of Polish citizens to Northern Russia, Siberia and Kazakstan from 1939-1956. The medals were pinned on Stefania Wojtkow, Marian Wiacek and Frank Dreksler in a ceremony at the Royal Canadian Legion, attended by about 60, including Republic of Poland consul general Krzysztof Czapla and Canadian Polish Congress president Kazimierz Brusilo. The 20th century deportations were among the last of a series of aggressions, occupations and invasions Poland has endured over the last 1,000 years. “We have living proof of what Poland as a country went through,” said Brusilo, referring to the recipients of the medal, awarded to survivors still living as of January 2004. “For hundreds of years when Russia dominated Poland, whenever someone disagreed, they sent them to Siberia,” said 81-year-old Wiacek, who was 10 when he was deported. “We were the last generation that went through that.” His family survived the experience, and in the ensuing years, travelled through Iran and Pakistan before reaching a Polish refugee settlement in Uganda in 1942. Wiacek joined a military school in 1944, went to England in 1947 and married Danuta Biniedea in 1963. They moved with their three children to Canada in 1975, and Wiacek retired to Kootenay Lake in 1997. “I never expected to get a medal for suffering in Siberia,” he said. “It’s so unexpected.” The Siberian Cross is a third medal for Wojtkow, who previously earned a

Second World War and King George VI Defence medals, and she was modest about receiving it. “It’s nothing new, but I didn’t expect such a big day.” The seventh of 10 children, Wojtkow was born in 1921, and deported when she was 17. She joined the Polish forces when Russia became an ally of Britain, and travelled throughout Europe, Asia and Africa. In Edinburgh, she was employed with the Signal Corps, sending and receiving Morse Code, and handling secret messages. Wojtkow was honourably discharged in 1948 and came to Canada in 1952, before heading to Creston to meet longtime pen pal Stanley Wojtkow, who owned five acres between 20th and 25th avenues.

Following his passing in 1984, Wojtkow remained in the home they built in 1976, and is now a member of the Therapeutic Activation Program for Seniors. Dreksler was born in 1930 and deported with his parents and three sisters in February 1940 to northern Russia, where they logged trees. Like Wiacek, they travelled through Iran and Pakistan, before arriving in Kenya. His family arrived in Halifax in 1949, and Dreksler eventually began working at a mill in Cranbrook before retiring to Creston in 1988. As with the others honoured on Sunday, he is happy to call Canada home. “We’re grateful to Canada for accepting us,” said Dreksler. “Also, we’re proud to be Canadians now.”

Tucker Green summer tour stopping in Creston SUBMITTED

Tucker Green is making a stop in Creston at the Snoring Sasquatch on

June 24 on the first leg of his 3-Legged Summer tour. Neighbour to Neighbour is the first leg of Green’s tour from B.C.

to, well, its neighbour, Alberta. The tour includes performances in cafés in small towns and house shows in big cities. The tour will spread Green’s music by way of friends inviting friends out for a night of great music and summer socializing. He is taking over neighbourhoods for one night and showing them a good time. Green’s record, Halfway to Daylight, which was released last summer, has been met with positive responses by both his local community and by new audiences on the road. The album is an Americana influenced folkrock, where Green tells coming-of-age stories in a way that makes you


CRESTON VALLEY ROD & GUN CLUB MAWSON LAKE Our Mawson Lake committee has been working hard to improve the access and facilities at the Lake. The club would like to extend special thanks to John Huscroft who donated several hours of his time on his heavy equipment. The land at Mawson Lake is private property for the enjoyment of our members and community youth groups by permission (scouts, cadets, etc.). We hope that adults practice catch & release and the youth retain only one fish (despite the entry in the current regulations). The gate will soon be locked. Members can access the road with their key to the rifle range. FAMILY FISHING WEEKEND We would like to invite all members to participate in the free Family Fishing Weekend by coming to Mawson Lake on Father’s to enjoy a burger and some fishing. MEMBERSHIPS Remember that memberships must be purchased by August 31st. If you intend to take advantage of the BCWF’s liability insurance while using your ATV, you must be in possession of the BCWF membership card and be involved in hunting or fishing.

Though the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Emergency Scamâ&#x20AC;? (or sometimes referred to as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grandparent Scamâ&#x20AC;?) has been around for years, the RCMP-led Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (PhoneBusters) warns the public to be on after noting a marked increase in the number of complaints in the last two months. Traditionally operating as a telemarketing scam throughout North America, fraudsters contact potential victims while posing as a family member or friend in urgent need of cash. Often the scenario involves an accident or arrest while travelling abroad, with a request that cash be sent through a money transfer company, such as Western Union or Money Gram. In the typical scenario, a grandparent receives a phone call from con-artist claiming to be one of his or hers grandchildren. The caller goes on to say that they are in some kind of trouble, usually a car accident, returning from a foreign country, or even bail money and need money immediately. Victims don't verify the story until after the money has been sent as the caller speciďŹ cally asks that they do not want other relatives to know what has happened by asking â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can you please help me? I'm in jail (or in the hospital / or in some type of ďŹ nancial need). But don't tell Dad. He would kill me if he found out, please sent the money ASAP. I'm scared" Wanting to help their grandchild, the victim sends money by a money transfer company such as Money Gram or Western Union. Variations on the scam exist such as an old neighbor, a friend of the family etc. but predominantly the emergency scam is directed toward the Grandparents.

Capt. Brad Chisholm is the commanding officer of the corps. The parade commander was Master Warrant Officer Denis Bedore. The annual review completes the local training year for the cadet corps. The parents and guests enjoyed a demonstration by the award winning 1746 pipes and drums band led by Pipe Major Warrant Officer Marcus Range.

eral government program delivered by the Canadian Forces and funded by the Department of National Defence with local assistance provided by the Army Cadet League of Canada. It is designed for youth who are interested in learning new skills, experiencing adventurous activities, national or international expeditions and travel, and meeting others of similar interests. Cadets are not members of the Canadian Forces and there are no expectations that the cadets aspire to a military career. The 1746 Royal Canadian Army Cadets Corps parades on Thursday evenings from 6-9 p.m. each week at the Royal Canadian Legion. Young people 12-18 years of age may enrol in cadets. Activities are centred on adventure training and leadership. Uniforms are loaned at no charge and summer training from two to seven weeks is included for selected cadets.
