Remembrance Day at Whonnock Lake Centre

A dozen of us gathered at Whonnock Lake Centre. We laid a wreath at both the 1914-1918 plaque and the plaque commemorating the Second World War and later conflicts. We observed our moment of silence. We recited In Flanders Fields and sang Oh Canada. Some left their poppies there. We met old friends and made new ones.

Route C49 — Ruskin / Haney Place on the chopping block?

Translink is proposing to cut back services and we need all support we can get to save and improve the current C49 Haney Ruskin routed service from Haney along Dewdney to 280th east along Lougheed and north on 272nd back to Dewdney.
There will be a meeting to express concerns about the limited services that are currently offered and we must make sure that the C49 Ruskin Route will not be cancelled. The meeting will be on Tuesday December 4th from 4:30 – 7:00 pm at The Act Theatre with community members, Mayor and Translink Representatives.
Call concerned citizen Deborah Wilkinson 778-995-2308 for more information.

Emmalene van Meel

"Emmalene van Meel is very grateful to the many people who donated spare change to her at the Haney Farmers Market over the years as she fiddled - it has helped her finally buy a full-sized violin.The Whonnock resident will be part of the lineup this Friday evening at Burnett Fellowship Church where a fundraiser, the Benefit Celtic Concert, is being held to raise money for this year's Santa Claus Parade and Christmas in the Park events on Dec. 1."
