Contest a draw at BC Lung table

Michele Caskey, BC Lung Association Volunteer Director, comes each September to generously share information at the Rock Creek Fall Fair.

Wilf Lindquist takes a scientific approach to the annual jellybean contest at the B.C. Lung Association fair booth.

Lynzee Davies of Whistler, B.C. and six-year-old Rhys Prudence of Oliver, B.C. were tied in the jellybean contest at the BC Lung Association booth at the Rock Creek and Boundary Fall Fair on the weekend of Sept. 14 and 15. The contest was to guess how many jellybeans were in the antique jar.

There were 306 entrants in the contest and guesses ranged from 112 to 1,000,000.

There were 1,003 jellybeans in the jar.

Congratulations to Lynzee and Rhys! Because there was a tie, a name had to be drawn by an independent person. Rhys Prudence’s name was drawn and Lynzee Davies will receive a consolation prize of a natural product from the Boundary Area.

Volunteer Director of the Boundary Area of the BC Lung Association, Michele Caskey extends thanks to all those who participated in the contest and to everyone who visited the booth and obtained information provided by the BC Lung Association.
