On Tuesday afternoon, the owners of Kettle Black Bartending – Andy Hawkins, Shea Hawkins, Kristina Wakeford and Cody Wakeford – donated over 160 bags of food to Major Edith Dean, Major David Dean and Pearl Jones of the Salvation Army. The food was collected for the #onebagchallenge, and 100 local businesses participated in the challenge to benefit the local food bank. The organizers say they were overwhelmed with the community support.

A young boy named Kubo must locate a magical suit of armor worn by his late father in order to defeat a vengeful spirit from the past.
Just wanted to let you know, the planning of Fernie’s Lantern Festival 2016 has begun and we’re cooking up a good one. Here’s a little peek into the theme for this year.
If you’re interested in the event, because it’s a good one, there are a few ways you can help out.
• Make your own lantern to be displayed and paraded about at the festival. Although the theme is Into The Woods, you are more than welcome to create whatever you fancy. We offer space at the Arts Station in the fall, where you will have access to materials and lantern making inspiration. Schedule coming soon!
• Join the team. We are creating an enchanted world for all our festival goers to interact with. It’s a lot of work to put it together and a few extra hands are always welcome. If you’re not into building, there are many other ways you can help us stay organized and on schedule.
• Lend some materials. A lantern festival needs a lot of lights! If you have christmas lights (outdoor) that we can use for the night, we would love to borrow them. All materials to be returned! Promise.
Beyond lights, we are always looking for:
• old bamboo blinds
• long willow branches
• wood scraps
• house spot lights
Well, hello, everyone! It’s been a while since I actually typed words out, rather than my usual post a picture/poster and continue on with my day. Exciting times have arrived! My little project called Shy Girl is being used as the guinea pig for WonderWalk at Wapiti Music Festival this weekend. WonderWalk was created by Sandra Boer as a way to promote local talent in a fun and engaging way. This time we have taken part of my story, Shy Girl – Tacki’s Cure (book one), and placed thirty pages of the story throughout the festival grounds. You can meander through the story and even go to my shy girl website to see more illustrations and learn more about the story. Shy Girl is a children’s book, a work in progress, for over a year and it’s still a very special project for me. I’m nervous and excited to let people into my Shy Girl world. I hope you enjoy it and even let me know if you did or did not enjoy the WonderWalk and Shy Girl experience. There’s even a survey you can quickly take this weekend, since I know every loves a good survey, so we can work towards creating another WonderWalk or perhaps rework the whole idea to make it better.
There are no posters for Wapiti this year? Shocking. This is the best I could find.
