On Sunday, Sept. 20 Chase hosted the Terry Fox Run but most people were possibly inside at home due to the inclement weather.
There were a few brave souls – nine – who remembered Terry withstanding everything, including the weather, and came out to support the cancer fight by running, walking, biking or pulling out some cash for their donation.
Organizer Jacquie Everett was initially disappointed with the turnout but uplifted when she added up the donations and reported more than $200 was collected.
Also, there is an individual business owner who matches the overall donation and has for nearly 20 years and has, over time, been recognized by the Terry Fox Foundation.
The help of the RCMP, Chase Fire Rescue and Safety Mart Foods was appreciated.
Thanks are also due to the students and staff of Haldane who completed their Terry Fox Run on Friday, Sept. 18 at noon after they hosted the Cops for Kids cyclists.
If you still want to make a donation or purchase the 35- year T-shirt, call Jacquie at 250-675-2574.
Local children’s author Rachelle Horvath has written and illustrated a book which will be featured at the Scotch Creek Library.
She will be introducing her book, “Come On Little One, Let’s Go See Grandma In The Garden Planting A Seed,” during story time on Oct. 24 at 11 a.m.
She has lived in the North Shuswap since 2009, spending most of her free time in her garden. Horvath has always had a love for gardening and has worked with children through much of her career, but it is only since becoming a grandmother that she has been able to combine the two. Her tools started as a hoe and a rake, but have evolved to include a camera, some crayons and a computer keyboard.
