Shannon Heppner was one of the lovely ladies in the Trashion Show last year. All the contestants made their own creative pret-a-porter outfits from receycling material.

Fall a community affair

Like years before, the end of this too-short summer will be celebrated by local Fall Fairs.

It’s that time again. Yep, the end of the summer is nearly upon us, and school is due to open its doors once again.

Like years before, the end of this too-short summer will be celebrated by local Fall Fairs. Burton will be holding theirs early on August 26, so let’s hope the zucchinis have had enough  time to get gigantic. The fair in Burton will be held at the same time as the Farmers’ Market from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., so get out there and enjoy the weather, the market and the fair all in one go. You might even be able to head to the beach if the sun decides to stick with us.

The Nakusp Fall Fair will be taking place September 15, so get the canning jars prepped and feed whatever magical growing substances you need to get your squashes enormous. Listing will be out soon, but if you’ve got a craft in the works, now is the time to get it done!
