It was a rainy weekend and the cowboys were covered in mud, but that did not stop the crowds from showing up and wave on the riders. From the calf roping to the dances in the Community Hall, it was a celebration worthy of 98 years. It’s hard to believe that so many years ago people set out to build a town, a valley and a festive cowboy tradition that has endured the test of time. As always, the rodeo clown and announcer were full of family friendly bad jokes, and karaoke wailed from the beer garden. To Ozzie Leaf and all the organizers – well done!
Look who's camping at the wharf - all for homeless youth. Way to go grade 9 & 10 from the Jackson Campus and Mayor Nancy Cooper! Last night i asked Lemon Tree Pizza to deliver dinner on behalf of Cristian Quijas and myself. This morning coffee and timbits from Tims downtown. Thx. We live in the most amazing place - partly because of Mother Nature and mostly because of the incredible people I get to share this all with. Patrick Ryley
They will be this Thursday as they are joined by fellow students to camp out under the stars. They will be setting up at the Gazebo at the Wharf, and joining in is Mayor Nancy Cooper. The youth are raising funds and making a point about youth homelessness, and how we can each play a part. Monies raised will be donated to the Covenant House in Vancouver. Their budget for housing youth is 200.00 per day, and the efforts of these young Salmon Armenians will keep a youth in a good facility for a week. The camp out will last from the evening on Thursday to Friday morning, and the weather looks pretty good. This goes to show how are youth take on challenges and concerns, working to enhance the world we live in and leave behind. Bravo!
