What a crazy event the Nordic Pumpkin Hunt was! We showed up a 1/2 hr late, not intentionally, but life is how it is, and we were turned away from the pumpkin hunt – although, there were other things we could have waited in long lines for. We decided to have our own pumpkin hunt and snacks at home instead. Honestly, I’m not complaining but I am shocked at how popular this event is. 320 pumpkins sold in 30 minutes. WOWZERS. That’s amazing! I’m so happy for the Nordic Society for organizing an event that everyone loves and wants to be part of.
Also, record turn out for the municipal election this fall. 60% of the eligible voters came out to the polls. Amazing.
What an amazing town we live in.

The lucky winner of the most votes gets $200! I could use that money to buy loads of groceries that would last about 3 days in this household.
Place your vote here and send that person home from Wapiti Music Festival (where the original artwork will be on display) with a couple bags of groceries!
I’m talking about the Tracks on Tracks CBC Radio3 train that will take Canadian bands on a rock ‘n’ rail adventure from Vancouver to Toronto. Three are to be picked from Western Canada and Shred Kelly has made the Top 50. The next round is the Top 25! We gotta get them on that train! By golly!
To vote, click here and fill out this survey. You gotta do it before April 23rd. I know Shred Kelly would really appreciate it.
