Weekend cruising

Cruising on a nice day is a favourite activity that my daughter, Jaiden, and I share.

I quickly discovered during her first year away at university that it’s not as much fun to go touring on your own.

Generosity sparkles at Relay for Life

Attendees at Saturday’s Relay for Life will shine in their support of the Canadian Cancer Society fundraiser — and a few may even sparkle, with the help of sparkle tattoos.

Crowsnest Pass teen Alyssa Gustavson will be coming to Pincher Creek for the event, providing the tattoos for children and other customers. For a second year, she will be donating all her proceeds to the relay.

Labour of love pays tribute to Sharon LeNeveu

Among the items up for auction or raffle at Pincher Creek’s Relay for Life this Saturday will be an afghan with a special story.


Six members of Fibre Friends, a local group interested in fibre art, knitted and crocheted the afghan using yarn that belonged to late spinner Sharon LeNeveu. The money raised from the afghan will be donated in Sharon’s name to support cancer research.
