Aldergrove resident Jared Fowler headlines a show at the Watershed Cafe on July 23.
Bands team up for show
A HERITAGE STYLE HOME IN A MATURE NEIGHBOURHOOD! From the sidewalk you will know you are about to enter a very special home a home that has been completely repainted, new solid granite countertops in the kitchen, all new ﬂooring on the upper ﬂoor and solid hardwood on the main ﬂoor. This home has no neighbours behind it so all you can see from every window at the back or sitting on your deck is a lush green backtop. A cozy window set for curling up on in the winter time and a beautiful veranda to set and watch the setting sun.
Three Lower Mainland acts perform Saturday in Walnut Grove.

ead to Walnut Grove for a showcase of diverse musical talents July 23. Various local performers have teamed up for the show at the Watershed Arts Cafe. The Jared Fowler Band with Behind Sapphire and Krystle Aspenlind perform that evening. Fowler started acting and doing commercials at a child and realized he loved performing. His musical career started as a child when he played banjo but after three years he traded up to the acoustic rhythm guitar
to get the girls. His musical aspirations have grown since then. Late last year he embarked on a tour to increase awareness about AIDS. Behind Sapphire has been gaining a following for what the Vancouver Sun described as “a soundtrack to your summer.” Krystle Aspenlind’s music is coloured by her experience. The young woman was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at 16. A few years on, she’s cancer-free but her music reflects a life tinged by the real threat of dying, including the dark and the dark humour. The Langley musician recently released the recording Anchor of Hope in a Rising River. The doors open at 7 p.m.
OUR ELECTRICITY GRID IS ABOUT TO GET
A WHOLE LOT SMARTER
STARTING THIS SUMMER, BC HYDRO WILL BE UPGRADING HOMES AND BUSINESSES WITH NEW SMART METERS. MOVING TO A MORE EFFICIENT, MODERNIZED GRID WILL CREATE IMMEDIATE SAVINGS FOR OUR CUSTOMERS. YOU MAY BE WONDERING... What is a smart meter? The smart metering program will modernize our electricity system by replacing old electro-mechanical meters with new digital meters. A smart meter is a a digital meter that records the amount of power you use. It helps improve the efﬁciency of the power grid, means less wasted electricity and gets BC ready for future power needs. What are the beneﬁts for me as a customer? You will be able to see your power use in near real time and it will be faster and easier to open and close your account if you move. What happens if the power goes out? With smart meters in place, BC Hydro can pinpoint power outages and restore power faster. How does it make my community safer? The new meters reduce public and worker exposure to theft-related safety hazards, such as house ﬁres, live wires and premature transformer failures. How will my meter be read? There will be remote, two way communication between your meter and BC Hydro. Smart meter signals are short, infrequent and will last less than one minute per day. Is the signal safe? The signals are low level frequency and exceed Health Canada safety standards. Is my information secure? Similar to online banking systems, the data from the meters is secure and your privacy is protected.
