Senior’s Picnic offers good summertime fun A&W CHARITY
Seniors have a great opportunity to get out, enjoy the sun, make new friends and try new activities this summer at a picnic event catered just to them. The City of Kamloops and the Seniors Outreach Society invite all seniors to attend the 2013 Seniors’ Picnic at McDonald Park, where they can be a part of a fun afternoon full of activities such as bocce, Tai Chi, croquet, water games and more. “It is so well organized,” says Irene Hawkins, who
attended the picnic last year. “We had a wonderful time. The gals serving were just absolutely fantastic and so kind. They set us up under tress, out of the sun, and moved us when the sun moved! They just couldn’t do enough to help us.” A free BBQ lunch is one of the highlights of the picnic and according to Irene the food and service were impressive. “The food was just delicious,” shares Irene. “We thought we would be going up to help ourselves, but they served us at the table and made it such a lovely
experience, such a beautiful day. But really it’s not the weather that made it so great – it’s the people. We all felt so welcome.” Irene isn’t the only past attendee who looks forward to this annual event. For many it’s one of their favourites of the year. “You know it’s a great event when you get phone calls months ahead from people wondering if we’re doing it again and when it will be!” says Lynn Burrows, Supervisor of Client Services at the Seniors Outreach Society. “Seniors can feel isolated, and for many this is when they get to catch up with old friends.” This year’s picnic is
being held on Wednesday, July 17 from 11:30am to 1:30pm. Registration is required to ensure the organizers Thursday, May 19 can be well prepared for all who attend. To register please call 250-8283500 and quote program number #214182. Registration deadline is Friday, July 12. Limited spots open for business 250.376.2411 are available so register today and mark your calendar, and don’t forget to pack your water bottle, hat and sunscreen – even in the shade Kamloops is hot in July.

RIH renovating Child Psychiatric Unit Interior Health has posted a Request for Proposals for consultant services to renovate the current pediatric unit on 5 South at Royal Inland Hospital to better meet the needs of both general pediatric and child psychiatry patients. “These renovations will help ensure the environment at Royal Inland is safe and comfortable for some of our youngest and most vulnerable patients,” says Health Minister Terry Lake. The successful proponent will provide design and construction
consulting services to transform two existing psychiatric inpatient rooms, a consultation area and the staff room on the pediatric unit into an integrated space with a private consultation room and a comfortable youth lounge area. “Children and their families deserve the best care possible. The redevelopment of the pediatric psychiatry area will allow clinicians to provide the necessary care in an environment that is both welcoming and allows for appropriate clinical supports,” says Kamloops-South MLA
Todd Stone. The renovation project will include creation of a new quiet room for observation. A dedicated washroom, shower and nurse’s station will also be built into the unit. The existing outdoor recreational area on a patio off 5 South will be renovated to create a more welcoming space for all children, youth and their families to use. Budgets and timelines will be finalized once planning is complete.
Young athletes earn money for post-secondary The Kamloops Youth Soccer Association announced the names of the recipients of ten 2013 scholarship awards. Congratulations to Jennifer Russell of Westsyde Secondary; Larissa Piva, Jacob Coelho and Jake Bainas of South Kamloops Secondary; Taylor McDonald, Tahanni Wou, Olivia Merritt and Eric Heichert of Sa-Hali Secondary; Kaitlyn Kokoska of Valleyview Secondary; and Jordy Hamer-Jackson of NorKam. Each recipient will receive a $500 contribution toward his or her post-secondary education fees. This is the most awards the KYSA has given out in a single year – two more than last year, which was a record number at that time. “We feel we have acknowledged some outstanding student-athletes once again,” says KYSA President, Graham Cope, who also chairs the Scholarship
Awards Selection Committee. “As usual, we received more applications than we had awards and some difficult decisions had to be made. The quality of the candidates just gets better and better, year-after-year. We just wish we had more money to hand out so that we could recognize and assist more excellent graduates.” Award recipients are selected using a variety of criteria, which extends beyond their playing ability. Such benchmarks include an applicant’s scholastic achievements, involvement in community activities, volunteer work, and assisting with school projects. Their contributions back to the game in the form of coaching or refereeing or helping run events and programs are also taken into consideration. Award recipients must provide proof of registration in an approved post-secondary institute to receive payment of their scholarship.

Adult Reading Club turns up the heat The TNRD Library System is once again inviting readers to join the Adult Summer Reading Club, which this year has as its steamy theme “Read Between the Sheets,” and will feature a grand prize draw for a Kobo Aura eReader. Running between July 2 and August 30, the Adult Summer Reading Club is asking readers to take another look at the much-maligned genre of romance novels. Although they have long been scoffed at, romance novels are no longer just bodice rippers — now there are cozy romances, paranormal romances, chick-lit, western romances, and elements of romance are cropping up in books of all genres. Despite this year’s theme, reading romance novels is not required to participate in the Adult Summer Reading Club. Participants must be 18 and older, and a registered member of the TNRD Library System to participate. Readers can register online at www.tnrdlib.ca and start submitting weekly book logs. For every week that a book log is submitted, a reader will be entered into the grand-prize draw for a Kobo Aura eReader. There will be a maximum of nine submissions per participant. A photo of the winner will be posted on the library website.

MANY VEGETARIAN FRIENDLY CHOICES AVAILABLE
Kamloops Pride wants to share the love Come one, come all! Everyone in Kamloops is invited to join in a day of festivities devoted to celebrating our GLBTQ2 (Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual, Trans-gendered, Queer, Two-Spirited) community. GALA (Kamloops Gay and Lesbian Association) has been busy working with supportive community groups to organize Pride events, and they have something for everyone and it all begins with the annual BBQ and Family Day. Hosted by The Lions Club, along with Micheal Maveety from Special Olympics, this year it’s being held right at Stuart Wood School, following the Farmers Market on July 13 from noon until 2:00pm. There will be half a dozen vendors and community groups there showing their support, including ASK Wellness, the Kamloops Unitarian Church and Kamloops Immigration Services, to name a few, and local candy makers from Fudge Yeah will be there with their rainbow fudge. “In the gay community we refer to supporters like these as “allies” and want to be sure they are recognized,” Says Brian husband of GALA. “They are highly respected but often go unnoticed, and we want them to know how appreciated they are.” In the past, GALA has always held a BBQ at a private residence, where friends gathered to socialize and get to know each other a little better. But as they have continued to grow and expand in our community, it became clear that it was time to move to a larger, more inclusive public venue where the straight community can feel welcome to join. “Bringing everyone together is how healthy communities are built – this is the new normal and Kamloops isn’t afraid to live and let live,” says Brian. “It’s all about letting your true colors shine, so this year’s theme is Bright and Colourful Summer Fun.” After the BBQ, people who are just getting started can round out the day with a dance being held at the Kamloops Curling Club. DJs Erik & Vadeem will be spinning the tunes all night long to keep everyone on the dance floor. Tickets will be available at the door, with a discount for TRU students. There will be early bird tickets sold from 9 to 10 when all adult admissions will be 2 for 1. Once you’re in the door, you’ll find plenty of drink and shooter specials. “It’s such a fun night!” says local Carrie Harman. She’s straight, but that hasn’t stopped her from attending past GALA events. “The place is full of great energy- no one’s there to judge, everyone just wants to have a good time. Let’s face it, gay means happy!” For more information visit gaykamloops.ca.

Catching the fish
“Let’s jump a few times to drive the fly fishers crazy!”
Jim had an awful day fishing on the lake, sitting in the blazing sun all day without catching a single one. On his way home, he stopped at the supermarket and ordered four catfish. He told the fish salesman, “Pick four large ones out and throw them at me, will you?” “Why do you want me to throw them at you?” “Because I want to tell my wife that I caught them.” “Okay, but I suggest that you take the orange roughy.” “But why?” “Because your wife came in earlier today and said that if you came by, I should tell you to take orange roughy. She prefers that for supper tonight.”
Woman’s remote control
Using an X to mark the exact location Two friends rented a boat and fished in a lake every day. One day they caught 30 fish. One guy said to his friend, “Mark this spot so that we can come back here again tomorrow.” The next day, when they were driving to rent
the boat, the same guy asked his friend, “Did you mark that spot?” His friend replied, “Yeah, I put a big ‘X’ on the bottom of the boat.” The first one said, “You stupid fool! What if we don’t get that same boat today!?!?”

The laws of golf simplified Law 1: No matter how bad your last shot was, the worst is yet to come. This law does not expire on the 18th hole, since it has the supernatural tendency to extend over the course of a tournament, a summer and, eventually, a lifetime. Law 2: Your best round of golf will be followed almost immediately by your worst round ever. The probability of the latter increases with the number of people you tell about the former. Law 3: Brand new golf balls are water-magnetic. Though this cannot be proven in the lab, it is a known fact that the more expensive the golf ball, the greater its attraction to water. Law 4: Golf balls never bounce off of trees back into play. If one does, the tree is breaking a law of the universe and should be cut down. Law 5: No matter what causes a golfer to muff a shot, all his playing partners must solemnly chant “You looked up,” or invoke the wrath of the universe. Law 6: The higher a golfer’s hand-
Did you know? The chances of making two holes-in-one in a round of golf are one in 67 million.
icap, the more qualified he deems himself as an instructor. Law 7: Every par-three hole in the world has a secret desire to humiliate golfers. The shorter the hole, the greater its desire. Law 8: Topping a 3-iron is the most painful torture known to man. Law 9: Palm trees eat golf balls. Law 10: Sand is alive. If it isn’t, how do you explain the way it works against you? Law 11: Golf carts always run out of juice at the farthest point from the clubhouse. Law 12: A golfer hitting into your group will always be bigger than anyone in your group. Likewise, a group you accidentally hit into will consist of a football player, a professional wrestler, a convicted murderer and an IRS agent - or some similar combination. Law 13: All 3-woods are demonpossessed. Law 14: Golf balls from the same “sleeve” tend to follow one another, particularly out of bounds or into the water (See Law three). Law 15: A severe slice is a thing of awesome power and beauty.
