  • Love to Laugh

    Laughing is good for you. It gets those endorphins flowing through your body. That is a good thing and feels great. YukYuks on Tour is back at The Horsethief Creek Pub in Radium this Saturday, June 10, beginning at 9 pm. It will be a great show; they always are. Headliner Kevin McGrath and emcee Nick McQuick will lift your spirits and have you chuckling in no time. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door. The free shuttle will be running so give the pub a call if you would like a ride.

    Serious Series

    I love watching ‘The Simpsons’. They never get old.

    DTSS Band Concert

    The David Thompson Secondary School Final Band Concerts are coming up next week. This is always a great show and a chance to see how much the members have grown in skill and talent. The Grade 8 Band, Grade 9 Band and the Junior Jazz Band will be performing on Wednesday, June 14. The Concert Band and the Stage Band will

    showcase their year on Thursday, June 15. Both performances are at the DTSS Gym and begin at 7:30 pm. Admission is by a silver collection at the door.

    Farmers Market Finally

    The Invermere Farmers and Artisans Mar- ket begins this Saturday, June 10, running from 9 am to 1 pm. This is always an in- credible market adventure with a fantastic variety of vendors. There are baked goods, preserves, food & beverages, jewellery, carvings, clothing and so much more that I cannot even attempt to describe it. New and exciting this year is the ‘Cenotaph Stage’ which will showcase live local music every Saturday from 10 am to 1 pm. This week’s band is ‘The Halfsacks’. They will be very entertaining.

    Pleiades Spa & Wellness now has 2 certi- fied BC RMTs on their team. Kate Godlien and Madi Melnick are welcoming valley residents (Golden to Canal Flats) with a great deal for a 60-minute session. Only $89 for your first visit. Call 250-347-2288 to book now.

    BIG Book Sneak Preview

    There is a ‘sneak preview’ of the BIG Book Sale by the Friends of the Invermere Pub- lic Library being held this Saturday, June 10 from 9 am to 1 pm (coincides with the Farmers Market hours). It will be held at Frater Landing, the courtyard in front of Columbia Valley Trading next to AG Valley Foods. They will have a large variety of gently used books to help get us warmed up for the BIG Book Sale in July. The Invermere Library will conduct ‘Story Time’ at Frater Landing at 11 am. All funds from the book sales go towards outfitting the Children’s Section of the new Inver- mere Library in the new community centre.

    Guest Speaker

    This Sunday, June 11, at 10:30 am, the Lake Windermere Alliance Church has a guest speaker delivering the message. “Hearing Voices” will be the topic for Rev- erend Terry Young from the Ambrose Uni- versity. The Alliance Church is the Church that I attend. They offer a positive message about kindness, respect, gratitude and such. The people attending and the Pas- tors are very welcoming and they have some great musicians as part of the wor- ship (singing) team. Everyone is welcome to attend on any Sunday at 10:30 am.

    Good Plan

    Recently I started a 4 week diet plan with all the meals laid out for me. I am very impressive. I was able to finish that plan in 11 days.

    Halibut & Chips

    Every Friday, at ‘The Grill’ at Windermere Valley Golf Course, is a great fish and chips special. Real fish. Halibut. Yummy. Stop in any day at the restaurant for a deli- cious meal. I think their wings are some of the best in the valley. AnD you may as well do some golfing while you are there. Windermere Valley is a nice course. It is affordable, walkable and very player-friendly.

  • Robservations

    I came across a pretty good saying this week. I am not sure who penned it so I can’t give credit, but it was not me. “Success is not the key to happiness; hap- piness is the key to success.” To me that makes total sense. Really, I think that that is what success is; happi- ness. If you are happy, you are leading a successful life. You do not need to make a ton of money, or to own the latest and fan- ciest truck on the market. You just need to enjoy your life every day. And that is totally up to you. I know that I write about this quite often but that is be- cause I truly believe it. I never feel that I need to ‘get ahead’. I would rather enjoy my activities today than worry about what might happen next week. It may catch up with me some day but in the meantime, I am enjoying life “How are you doing?” people ask. “Busy and broke, but living an incredibly rich life,” is my answer. And it’s true. Get out there and enjoy yourself. We were not put on this planet to work all day, be miserable and go home for a couple hours before bed and doing the exact same thing tomorrow. Life is lots of fun if you let it be.

    Honk if you love Jesus. Text while driving if you want to meet him. How do we make Holy water? We boil the hell out of it. What is missing from Ch__ch? U R.

    Hike for Hospice

    This year’s ‘Hike for Hospice’ will be at the historic K-2 Ranch on Westside Road. It will be a beautiful 4 km round trip to McCarthy Lake on Sunday, June 25. The day includes a tour of the barn and blacksmith shop on the ranch. Check-in is at 9:30 am, the tour at 10 am and the hike begins at 10:30 am. Participants are asked to pack a lunch for the time at the lake. This is a pledge-based event to raise money for the Hospice Society
