Summer has arrived with a vengeance with continuous high temperatures and Mother Nature’s fires!

Nancy and AngieOur hearts go out to the community of Lytton – who lost everything in the fire, including their town – totally wiped out. There are many fundraising efforts in place for the townspeople.

Have you got your ‘emergency evacuation kit’ packed up and ready go? Be safe everyone! We thank the many fire and air crews and volunteers working around the clock to protect us all.

I just heard that stats now stand at 44% of BC’s population has received their second Covid shot – great news! And so many events and activities are now taking place. But we still need to remain cautious and follow recommended safety protocols – we are not out of the woods yet! Let’s hope we can get back to some kind of normalcy soon.

This is your last chance to enter our Caption Contest in this issue (and on our Facebook page). Next month, we have a NEW contest beginning, courtesy of The Finn & Fletcher Co. Stay tuned!

Try to enjoy your summer – be careful on the roads and in the hills!
