Congratulation Whonnock Weavers and Spinners

This year’s Whonnock Weavers and Spinners Guild’s annual open house exhibit and sale was as usual a roaring success. It seems that every year there are more people attending, looking at all that beautiful craftwork. One runs into old friends every year and standing in line to pay offers a great opportunity to socialize. Since many years we go here “just to look,” and we never leave  empty-handed. Congratulations to all who tirelessly volunteered and produced. After 36 years the event is still as fresh as it was right in the beginning.

The 11th hour

Guided by Tom Brent and Phil Johnson, about a hundred of us gathered at Whonnock Lake Centre and remembered those who gave their lives for our country and others who died in war.
Whonnock Elementary students Allora Martin, Anjali Rutledge and James Launder recited their own poems.   
A simple ceremony without politicians and fanfare – much appreciated by all.
