The Mardi Gras Winter carnival is coming this weekend. There will be a craft and home business sale on Saturday, Jan. 28 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The tables are free and there is no percentage charge. To reserve your table call Carol Poff at 250-242-4445.

There are lots of activities including ice sculpturing. It’s certainly cold enough for that. We’re having a wonderful winter and here it is mid-January and we are just getting a little cold spell.

Tumbler Ridge Health Centre Foundation has received donations from Darryl Krakowka, owner of Shop Easy of $1000 and the Lions Club of $1000. The funding was used to buy an adult wheelchair ($1108) and a pediatric wheelchair ($1822).
