The land bakes in the summer sun.
Columbines and Tiger Lilies grace the open woodlands, while glades with pungent soil throw up Coralroots, their stems a litany of delicate orchids.
Canim sponsors bursaries
The Community Club’s Jean Reynolds Memorial Bursary of $1,000 was awarded this year to Justin Shearer of Buffalo Creek, who is in first-year heavy duty mechanics at Thompson Rivers University in Williams Lake.
The program counts for Grade 12 credits. Justin plans to complete the four-year course to obtain his Red Seal certificate. Marga Hausmann made the presentation on behalf of the club.
Don Reynolds, with his daughter, Barbara Jean Ohrling, contributed an additional $1,000 for a second bursary in Jean’s name. This was awarded to Alisha Beyer of Forest Grove and 100 Mile House.
She is pursuing a career in veterinary medicine, which will take her first to Alberta for a four-year Bachelor of Science program.
Canim Place thefts
A gang of four individuals broke into six or seven homes along Canim Place on one night.
They entered out of sight of the road through a window or by smashing their way in with a heavy tool. Items of value, including firearms, were stolen. The four have since been arrested and charged.
Residents described the event as “devastating” and “violating.” They speak highly about the RCMP officer who dealt with the case calling his work “superb.” The residents are now organizing an informal group, which will keep a very close eye on all properties along their road.
Fire chief Bob Felker says the department is short of personnel, especially at Hall #2 Canim Lake.
Both firefighters and medical first responders are needed, women and men. Joining the fire department involves you with a great group of people, and provides training in skills most useful to life in the Cariboo.
To find out more, contact Bob at 250-397-2393, or drop by Hall #1 any Monday at 7 p.m.
That’s all for now. Until next time, here’s wishing you many blessings.
