I am going to suggest to Darrick Boyes they have the annual winter carnival a week earlier next year or perhaps even two weeks.
There is no snow at this time of the year, or at least not enough for the winter carnival. They are fortunate that Blocks R Us is bringing in snow to make the sledding hill.
There will be all kinds of activities for the kids like the sledding, and there will be free skating at the rink. There is also a First Nations Tee Pee, horse sleigh rides, karaoke and lots more.
There will be entertainment and remember this is a free event. Bring the kids down to get their faces painted. For the bigger kids there’s a chilli cook off and a food court. The Lions club is having a pancake breakfast starting at 9 a.m. also.
The two day carnival runs from 10:30 to 3 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday. And did I mention this winter carnival is done by volunteers and I know I did say it’s free.
Are we getting ‘too much’ Donald Trump information these days. I just saw an article that claims many are upset about the way Donald and his wife Melania were not smiling all the time and not even with a fake presidential grin. The story said they seemed uncomfortable as they sat side by side.
I don’t think we need to analyze their presidency so close that we have to have some writer suggesting something that may not excite a lot of readers, even those who don’t like Trump.
I think because he has been a successful business man around the world he must have something going for him. So perhaps we analyze what he is doing now that he is the ‘President.’ What about the pipeline into Alberta he just approved? Only the environmentalists would be upset about moving oil down south.
My belief would be to let him go down the Presidency path for a while longer and then we can see how many of his ‘impulse decisions’ have been brought to the front, like building a wall across Mexico?
I think Canada will come out OK with President Trump at the helm, now let’s hope he gets down to talking about softwood lumber.
