Hello, STS readers. I have a some great news. I bought a new computer! It’s fast and it works and I don’t have to wait every time I push a button or wait each time I attempt to write text in a text box. I feel so free right now. I can accomplish tasks in a reasonable amount of time.
This is my big excuse to why I haven’t been active much on STS. It was just too painful to post anything. But here I am. I’m going to try and do a little more. For starters, we have the Fernie Spinners & Weavers Guild opening up an exhibit at The Arts Station tonight. It all starts at 7 pm.
Should you miss garbage day or have no garage or shed to store garbage securely between collection days, there is a great new convenient option for you available 7 days a week 24 hours a day! Thanks to the City of Fernie who now has bear resistant dumpsters available for public use at four locations in Fernie: City Hall, Aquatic Centre, Max Turyk and the Arena. The dumpsters are easily identified by a “Keep Wildlife Wild” sticker. Read more here: wildlife bc website
Up until recently, about 2 days ago, I had no idea what was happening next weekend. I was confused about the Feast and Fest, what is Chautauqua, who is planning what. So here’s a bit of information as I heard it.
Fernie Museum, The Arts Station and Wildsight are combining forces and separate events into one massive weekend party. Have you seen the multi-page flyer?
wildsights’s Feast and Fest, which was last year a cool outdoor dining experience (feast) and a fall fair (fest), which has turned into a Feast and Fest all in one night. The Feast (an amazing dinner cooked by Chef Barrie and her team in the Eco garden) is combined with the Fest (the after dinner party of the Feast also at the Eco Garden).
To clarify, Feast $75/ticket for local harvest dinners and Fest $20/ticket for just the after dinner party – dessert and a drink and social in the garden.
The Fall Fair is now a separate thing but still organized by Wildsight, I believe.
Chautauqua has adopted the Feast and Fest, Fall Fair, as well as, the Art Walk to create a whole crazy weekend of activities, events, experiences, celebrations for the whole community and beyond.
It’s complete madness, really. Check out the schedule. Have fun out there.
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.
