With graduation ceremonies nearly done for most parents the Grade 12 students have been firming up their next steps.
We are very fortunate to have TRU in our community. There are so many advantages like the lower cost of living, having the support of family and friends nearby, a new campus with friendly accessibility and smaller class sizes. It is definitely one of the better choices especially for the first year.
“Williams Lake Willy” is back and ready to attend as many functions as he can considering his very old age.
The Chamber board commitment to have this valuable mascot refitted was a great one and he made his debut at Howdy Williams Lake Day.
