And the good times just keep on rolling! One might have thought that with all the snow that fell on Saturday some of the many events scheduled for that evening may have experienced a lack of attendance. Not to be – my hat is off to all of you who braved the snow and cold to take part in Deb’s Night Out and the Mountain of Hope Gala on January 29.
This is what we do in this neck of the woods though, isn’t it?
We’re known to follow what I’ve always thought of as the postal workers’ creed. I suspected it was American in origin but turns out I was wrong (again!). The phrase, “Neither snow nor rain nor heat [sleet?] nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds,” does not originate with the postal service at all, although it is an inscription on a post office in New York City.
It is derived from a quote from Herodotus’ Histories and refers to the courier service of the ancient Persian Empire.
Wherever it originated, it’s a pretty good creed to live by and I salute all who do.
The Ladies’ Fiesta bonspiel is on this weekend at the Invermere Curling Centre.
Look out world, there will be some wild and wacky women in town, many of whom will no doubt be in costume and they won’t all be visitors!
Curling will begin on Friday evening and continue through until Sunday afternoon.
The Year of the Rabbit officially begins on Thursday February 3. There have already been a couple of celebrations in the Valley but there’s one more to take in. Radium Resort is hosting a dinner on Friday February 4.
Also on February 4 the Columbia Valley Rockies are at home hosting the Golden Rockets.
I hope a number of local fans can get out to the game to offset the number of Golden fans who make the trip.
Don’t miss Babies, the next feature of cinefest at Pynelogs on Tuesday February 8.
Lastly, mark your calendars for A Taste of Jamaica at DTSS on Wednesday February 9.
