Last Saturday was the perfect weather for the first annual duck pluck. Firm Foundations Christian Outreach organized the event at Golden Years Lodge. They purchased prizes from local home-based businesses with money coming from bottle recycling donated by the community. Ten prizes were drawn. The ticket sales raised $3,500 to support Valemount Senior Citizens Housing Society (VSCHS) with their new Seniors Supportive Living project called Valemount Cares. If you are interested in becoming a board member of VSCHS please call Laurel McKirdy at 250-566-6888 or Beth Russell at 250-566-1102. We believe in serving our seniors at the present facilities and also with the new facility, allowing them to continue living in the community when they need more support. /BETH RUSSELL
