Sugar shack cuisine awakens traditions A&W CHARITY

The sugar season (temps des sucres) is one of the oldest of Francophone culinary traditions. During springtime, many people head to sugar shacks (cabanes à sucre) for a traditional meal. Above, tire sur la neige (snow toffee) is prepared by Sylvie Reid and Line Dijkstra for those with a sweet tooth.

The time has sprung for a sweet activity that has remained an annual family-related celebration of Spring. Situated 16.5 km north-west of Kamloops, the main building at McQueen Lake Education Centre offers all the traditional character of a colonial log cabin in a natural setting. So it is here, on Saturday, March 9, that the Kamloops Francophone Association will soothe urgent maple cravings. They will host Cabane à sucre 2013 in the traditional style of Francophones of Quebec and into the provinces of Ontario and New Brunswick. "Cabane à sucre and other great Canadian traditions have been celebrated annually in this region for over 30 years," remarks Margo Mercier, executive director of the Kamloops Francophone Association. "Bring your 'joie de vivre' and your taste buds!" Translated from French, as the name implies, Cabane à sucre is a sugar shack. Historically, when maple sap flowed during early spring, it was collected from the trees and boiled into maple syrup at craft cabins on properties where settler families pioneered. Many things are on the menu this year for Cabane à sucre at McQueen Lake including fresh air, competitions and special activities for children and celebrating French culture in Kamloops. Sugaring off is a rite-of-passage at

this annual event. A warm and chatty atmosphere is promised when you queue up outdoors for what is perhaps Thursday, MayDelight 19 the best known activity. your taste buds with a special treat, la tire, (maple toffee) made in front of your eyes on snow! (Freshly transported.) This pièce de résistance on a stick will be offered for $2. open for business 250.376.2411 The celebration continues with a delicious, traditional supper open to everyone. Hearty dishes include eggs, sausage, ham, pancakes, beans and roasted potatoes complemented by liberal amounts of pure maple syrup. Did your ears perk up at the mention of more gooey, golden syrup? The smell alone of all the food will likely make this meal one of your cultural favourites for years to come. Pair this feast with a favourite beverage and prepare for an atmosphere of Francophone festivity. You may knock elbows with someone you like. Smile and say, "Salut!" This fun-filled afternoon makes for a wonderful family outing and a memorable culinary experience. Bravo for originality! Activities will start at 2:00pm. La tire from 3:00 to 4:00pm. Supper will be served at 5:00pm. Seats are limited for the supper. Tickets are available at the Association office at 348 Fortune Drive. Call 250-3766060 or visit francokamloops.org to learn more.

Sports Centre improvements announced

Support has been announced for upgrades to the MacArthur Island Sports Centre and New Life Mission Outreach Centre under the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund (CIIF). “Our Government is pleased to help improve facilities, such as the MacArthur Island Sports Centre and the New Life Mission, that play such an important role in supporting our community,” said McLeod. “By investing in projects that will have a long-lasting, March 6 positive impact for our residents, we are helping to build stronger communities while creating new economic opportunities.” An investment of $1,734 will enhance the safety of the Kamloops Long Blade athletes at the MacArthur Island Sports Centre. “The club has had these important security improvements at the Sports Centre planned for more than two years,” said Kamloops Long Blades president, Trish Archibald. “We really appreciate this support from the Government of Canada that will allow us to go ahead with this project.” The New Life Mission will also receive $9,000 in federal funding

to upgrade the Outreach Centre. Improvements include replacing and painting the exterior siding, repairing roof leaks, and replacing damaged downspouts. Economic Action Plan 2012 helps communities across the country to modernize their infra-

As Kidney Health month gets underway, MLA for Kamloops North Thompson Terry Lake and others gathered in the future location of a new Community Dialysis Unit (CDU) to review ongoing renovations and learn more about this service. “Today’s tour highlighted just how much this project will improve kidney care for Kamloops area residents,” says Kamloops North Thompson MLA Terry Lake. “The CDU will provide an easily accessible option for stable hemodialysis patients.” Interior Health awarded a con-

tract for the necessary renovation and light construction work to True Construction last month. The CDU, located in leased space at 797 Tranquille Road in Kamloops, will allow stable kidney patients access to hemodialysis services outside of Royal Inland Hospital. The CDU will incorporate an Involved Care/patient self-management model, empowering patients to increase their independence and gain more control over their health.

The new CDU is expected to open by summer 2013.

Putting things in perspective

The ECHO ASKS YOU Would you like to see Daylight Savings Time eliminated?

The Kamloops Arts Council is offering a Perspective Workshop with Mairi Budreau that draws the three-dimensional world into two-dimensions.

Drawing the illusion of distance on a two-dimensional surface was an unsolved dilemma for centuries. While the Greeks had it figured out schematically, it took the masters of the Renaissance to bring an artistic sensibility to perspective. It is amazing that by using perspective an artist can draw or paint so effectively that a viewer’s judgment can be temporarily suspended and the brain is led into and through a scene as if it were real. Perspective drawing skill is important equipment to have in your art kit and fortunately it is a learnable drawing skill. The Kamloops Arts Council is offering a Perspective Workshop with Mairi Budreau at Parkview Activity Centre, 500 McDonald Avenue on Saturday, March 9, 9am to noon. In this three-hour workshop you will gain an understanding of perspective, the elements that convey distance, and you will do exercises that sort out the process of drawing what you see in the threedimensional world into what you draw on a two-dimensional surface. Come join me as we break down the barriers between you and successful realist drawing. Mostly self taught, Mairi Budreau has almost 20 years realist drawing experience; four years as a professional pencil artist after having a solo portrait drawing

Leadership class students at NorKam Secondary School raised the bar on Pink Shirt Day last week. Nyk Burlock and Krysten Paluck (left) spearheaded a project that materialized the creation of over 100 super cool tie-dye t-shirts. The effort was worth it in the end and brought awareness not only to the message of antibullying but also diversity and acceptance of different cultures, sexual gender and equality within their school. Other members of the student body have expressed interest in the project and plans are in the works for Tye Dye Tuesdays to promote the spirit of this message on a regular basis.

Put your best foot forward for Nutrition Month March is Nutrition Month - the perfect time to start thinking about how food choices can affect your health. Small changes can pay off big by reducing your risk, and your family’s risk, for obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Interior Health has a few simple tips to help you make healthier food choices. Plan weekly meals. Spend a few minutes before you shop and plan your meals for the week; it’s one of the best ways to save money and time. Once you know what meals you are going to eat, you are ready to make a grocery shopping list. A shopping list not only keeps you on track, it can also help you make healthier choices. A list helps you avoid the temptation to buy heavily promoted processed foods which often are less nutritious. Grow some of your own food. Many of us have heard the saying “healthy eating begins at the grocery store.” While this is true it’s important to remember that healthy eating can also

begin with a visit to your local farmers’ market, and you can grow your own food as well. Eat your meals together. Mealtime is an excellent time to connect as a

family. Make the most of meal times by turning off the TV, phones and other distracting electronics. Families who eat together are healthier and happier. Children who have meals

with their families eat more vegetables and fruit. For more nutrition information: Contact a registered dietitian at HealthLink, healthlinkbc.ca/dietitian. or visit dietitians.ca.

Girls of steel: My other doll is a robot. Hey girl, Do you like Robots? Would you like to build and program robots? How about running your robot though a challenge course? If you answered yes to any of the above, then the BIG Little Science Centre Robotics Club is for you! Girls are invited to join the Girls-Only, Two Day Robotics Camp at BIG Little Science Centre from March 19 to 21, 9:00am to 2:30pm Day One, of the two day camp, is Tuesday, March 19 and then you choose which day you want for your second day: Day Two is either Wednesday, March 20 or Thursday, March 21 Girls ages 9 and up are encouraged to join in the computer/robotic fun. The club will be using Lego NXT robots. No prior robot construction or programing knowledge is required. Have you heard of: Alfa Rex, the Scorpion, the Tribot? As skills develop, new robot designs and more advanced programing will be introduced. Space is limited so register early. Registration forms are on the BLSC website or at BLSC.

The owner of the pub asks, “How is business?” The barkeep responds, “Not too bad. The O’Malley twins are here getting drunk again.”

You don't have to be Irish to enjoy the day when Guinness consumption doubles! On the North Shore, the Pogue Mahone will be celebrating all weekend, from March 15 to 17 with Irish dancers, green beer, draws, prizes and Irish Celtic Karaoke on Friday. You'll do a jig when you see the St. Paddy's prices in the Brock Pub Beer and Wine Store. Round up your mates and get your green on at the Rock’n Firkin where food and drink specials will also be offered up.

Notable Quotables “Anyone acquainted with Ireland knows that the morning of St. Patrick’s Day consists of the night of the 17th of March flavored strongly with the morning of the 18th.” - Unknown “There are only two kinds of people in the world, The Irish and those who wish they were.” - Irish Saying

Little green man. Has the coloring of an ogre, stature of a garden gnome and disposition of a jolly Christmas elf minus the unfashionably ridiculous tights and jingling shoes. May also be mistaken for a hobbit due to size and lush green habitat of choice. Often found near rainbows and fields of shamrocks, dancing a jig merrily while drinking from a pint in one hand and holding another pint in the other. Will know this is the real “little green man” as he doesn’t spill a drop of the beer, even while dancing a jig! Is attracted to Irish folk songs, and to scents of beer and shepherd’s pie. Comes with “lucky charms” and blarney stone, pre-attached. Reward offered for the safe capture and return of the missing little green man. Last seen dressed in green under the rainbow, and collecting what appeared to be gold coins from a large black pot. Little green man is not considered armed and dangerous, but definitely off his nut and enjoys acting the maggot. No twistin’ hay! If you see him, bring him in before he finds another rainbow!

ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE... The Bible is a masterful book, written by the Living God of heaven and earth. In it God tells us of His plan and purpose with the earth and ourselves. Amos 3:7 “Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.”

He tells us the way of salvation Psalm 119:41 “Let thy mercies come also unto me, O LORD, even thy salvation, according to thy word.”

The Bible is a manual for living a positive and fruitful life. Colossians 1:10 “That ye might walk

worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;”
