Community coming together for Canada Day A&W CHARITY

The nation will celebrate itself on July 1, and everyone around here agrees that Kamloops is one of the best places in the country to be on our collective birthday. Taking over the entire expanse of Riverside Park, people from both sides of the river will celebrate the national holiday with a full day of culture, arts, music and festivities that begin at 7:00am with a pancake breakfast served by the local Lions Club and won’t end until the last firework fades from the night sky after 10:00pm. Throughout the day, at every turn, there will be entertainment and activities for every age and interest. Multi-cultural food booths and performers, children’s activities and facepainting, and live music on stages at both ends of the park will be going non-stop all day, but one of the biggest signature events of our local celebration is the Kamloops Arts Council’s (KAC) Art in the Park. “We are so excited about all of the new booths and events,” says Kelsey Gilker, Marketing and Membership Coordinator with the KAC. “This year we have over 85 artists.” The art booths will be showcasing everything from tradi-

Oh Canada!

Kids of Steel

 Sunday, June 16 marked the 11th Annual Kamloops Kids of Steel Triathlon. This City of Kamloops hosted event boasts up to 200 participants each year and has grown to be one of the best Kids of Steel events in Western Canada. The Kids of Steel Triathlon took place at the Brocklehurst Recreation Centre. The event connects swimming, cycling and running with a transition area, providing a chance for kids to try out the sport. It is open to kids born between 1994 and 2008, with training wheels and life jackets allowed. Every participant was a winner!

The end is near: get your entries in! With just two weeks left to go, The Solar Laundry Project is nearing its goal of giving away 110 clotheslines to Kamloops residents. If you haven’t entered the draws yet, there’s still time, but hurry! Details and registration can be found at bcsea.org/ kamloops. Although the inclement weather recently is more conducive to an outdoor rinse cycle than a speedy dry, winners are confident that the sun will soon be handling most of their drying needs.

Joanne Bonderud, who walked away with an umbrella style clothesline and bonus Krinner ground screw, says “I’ve been meaning to put up a clothesline for years, so what’s another week or two? The sun will be back!” Heather Mewhort, another winner, was equally thrilled. “I have been hanging wet, clean bedding over our sundeck railing for a long, long time. Nothing smells so wonderful as the sun and wind drying it.

Now, I will be able to hang out everything and help our planet, too!” Since winners can choose between an outdoor umbrellastyle clothesline or an indoor/ outdoor 5-2 string retractable model, it’s not necessary to have a yard to participate. Enter once and your name will stay in for all the draws. Canada Day celebrants will have a final chance to win by entering at the BC Sustainable Energy Association booth at Riverside Park on July 1. Of course, using a clothesline will actually save you money, but it helps when Mother Nature is on your side! Check out bchydro.com/powersmart for more ways to save energy.

– continued from page 1 organize and support the traditional activities of local ethnocultural groups. The Society is responsible for the ethnic food garden and for the all-day series of performances on the multicultural stage. Haydee Salinas will be in the park representing the newest addition to the KMS: the Hispanic Society. “We are too new to have a food booth – we are less than a year old – but I will be teaching salsa lessons and will have piñatas for the kids to play with,” says Haydee, who is from Mexico City but has lived in Kamloops for over six years. “I love it here. Everyone is so friendly.” With so much going on, families with staying power can come early and stay late. The entertainment stage will have ongoing entertainment from a variety of musicians and performers all day long, and the ethnic food booths will be serving foods from around the world from 11:00am to 6:00pm, so there’s no need to haul your cooler down if you don’t want the extra load. For those with a taste for a cold one on what is typically a hot, summer day there will be a beer garden open from 11:00am to 7:00pm – and this year the city is making it easy to kick back by providing free public transit all day long. “We are hoping to help avoid parking issues,” says the City of Kamloops’ Arts, Heritage and Culture Coordinator Cara Graden of the inevitable challenges of hosting an event that is so fabulous that the entire city wants to attend. Now there’s nothing left to stop everyone from coming out to cheer Oh Canada together! Rebecca Stewart

New Board of Directors CHBA CI

Winner Joanne Bonderud is all smiles as she picks up her free clothesline from Trudy Fehr and Darlene Basky at RONA.

The Home Builders Association Central Interior (CHBA CI) voted in their Board of Directors for 2013/14. Matt McCurrach, Homex Development Corporation was elected president and stated, “I’m looking forward to a successful year supported by a strong Board bringing diverse

points of view that will move our organization forward. The number one concern to our industry is housing affordability. There are relentless upward cost pressures but the area of greatest concern is the regulatory burden imposed by all levels of government through increases in taxes and fees.”

Summer Reading Club set to soar The TNRD Library System is once again inviting children to join the Summer Reading Club, which runs from July 2 to August 24. This year’s theme is “Up, Up and Away.” As in years past, the library will be offering free Reading Clubs for all levels of readers to join. There will be a Read-To-Me Club for emerging readers (toddlers to age five), a Summer Reading Club for children ages six to 12, and a Teen Reading Club. When children sign up for the program they will receive a reading log to record their summer reading and can earn weekly stickers. They will also be able to participate in fun activities and

exciting contests for great prizes. Every reader that completes the program will receive a special award, too. Grand prizes for the Summer Reading Club (ages 6-12) will be either a helicopter ride courtesy of C.C. Helicopters, or a “Funky Reading Corner.” Teens don’t even need to register - their club will be conducted entirely via Twitter at @ TNRDTeenRC. Teens can go the tnrdlib.ca to learn more. Children can register for the Summer Reading Club on the June 17 at the Kamloops and North Kamloops libraries.

Days of Caring On Thursday, June 20 volunteers from Fulton and Co. visited the Boys and Girls Club located at 1515 Island Parkway, South McArthur Island to plant, paint, weed and other tasks that were in need of some TLC as well as assisting in the construction of a new sandbox. The Boys and Girls Club provides many after-school and out-of-school programs during critical periods of child development, and they will be moving to their new location at John Todd Elementary, hopefully by fall of 2014.

Take a stand to stop violence against women Dear Editor, We have been contacted by several media sources to comment on the RCMP’s press release describing the rape of a 17-year-old girl at a recent grad bush party. First of all, our care and concern go out to this girl and her family. We applaud her courage in going forward to the hospital and RCMP to disclose the crime and we also honour many other women survivors of violence who have chosen not to do so. Secondly, we have had several inquiries about how parents can keep their children safe, in particular their daughters. While we appreciate and understand the question, we decline to answer. Ultimately a question

like this implies that girls can do something to stop rape and that if we give them a list of safety rules they are in charge of preventing sexual assault. This is a form of blaming the victim. These inquiries also imply that all boys and men are awaiting the opportunity to rape when the right girl makes the wrong move. This is not honouring or accurate of boys or girls. We would prefer the questions begin with how we all can take a stand to stop violence against women and children. We recognize there are many kind, loving people who do not wish to hurt others and many concerned parents wanting to protect their children. Identify your concerns with your children, believe and

support them when they come to you with a crisis and promote their respect of others. Additionally, we’d like to comment that posting pictures or sharing images of a crime is also a crime and we encourage all young people to not re-victimize anyone by sharing violent material. Think twice. It is punishable by law. If you are in danger, need help, have questions, or require support or counseling because of violence, please contact the Kamloops Sexual Assault Counseling Centre at 250372-0179, or the Centre’s agency coordinator Cynthia Davis at 250828-6332.

Reubin’s Diner makes hungry people happy

Hunger affects people from all walks of life — children and families, seniors, employed people, and people living on disability and other fixed income sources. The local food bank is reaching out to the community for support. As the national organization dedicated to reducing hunger in the short-term and long-term, Food Banks Canada has developed a number of ways to make it easier for individuals, corporations, and other organizations to get involved. You can help Say NO to Hunger by visiting saynotohunger.ca, where you can explore many ways to contribute to a solution and even take a pledge. Whatever you can do to help

— whether you make a financial donation, volunteer your time, arrange a large-scale donation of food or goods from your company, organize a food drive, educate others, or advocate on behalf of low-income Canadians — your contribution

is important. For every $1 you donate, Food Banks Canada is able to acquire and share $8 worth of food. Your contribution makes a real difference in the lives of people in your community — and across Canada.

You know you're Canadian if most of your clothes have beer logos on them.

Longer days of summer A man was working in a scrap yard during summer vacation at an engineering university. One afternoon, he was taking apart a piling hammer that had some very large bolts holding it together. One of the nuts had corroded on to the bolt; to free it, he started heating the nut with an oxyacetylene torch. As he was doing this, one of the dimmest apprentices, Banta, came along. He asked him what he was doing. He patiently explained that if he heated the nut, it would grow larger and release its grip on the bolt so

he could then remove it. “So things get larger when they get hot, do they?” Banta asked. Suddenly, an idea flashed into his mind, “Yes,” he said, “That’s why days are longer in summer and shorter in winter.” There was a long pause, then his face cleared, “You know, I always wondered about that,” he said.

When you buy from a small business, you are not helping a CEO buy a third vacation home. You are helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy get his team jersey, a mom put food on the table, a dad pay a mortgage or a student pay for college. Our customers are our shareholders – and they are the ones we strive to make happy.
