Marlene Thomas and her family live at 460 Starchuk Road. On their property they’ve planted 350 Cedar trees to create a maze. For the second year they have adorned their property with all manner of spooky props, donned costumes and opened up their property to the public. For $5 you can wander through the maze, be startled and scared. Even though it’s dark you can tell the kids love it as you can hear in the video below. The money raised goes to support the Grads at GFSS.
How to get there? The location is on this Google Map below:

While driving home I saw a cyclist pedaling west on Central (Hwy 3). From a distance I could tell he was a long hauler and as I got closer I could see signage and a message on his shirt but because of traffic I had to go around the block to pass by again to see what it said. And that led me to ask him if he’d take a break for a minute and I’d trade him a cool refreshment for an interview … which is how we met Mike and his traveling companion Emmy.
Emmy is a rescued canine from L.A. that Mike has adopted and taken on a 2000 Km round trip to raise funds for a non-profit dog rescue group in Kelowna called ‘Paws It Forward’ AND to help out with dogs displaced by the flooding in High river Alberta
The group he’s riding on behalf of is: pawsitforward.org

This past Sunday, Aug 11, Habitat for Humanity Boundary held a fundraiser in City Park. Chris Moslin tells me “HFHB raised $1600 at that event. The goal was $1000 so we did pretty well. You don’t need a lot of people – just a time and place. HFHB is very pleased with the results and will consider putting on a similar event next summer.”
Appearing on the stage were a number of acts and we shot some video. Before the batteries died we got at least one song from most of the acts and you can watch that below.
