Making a splash for a great cause

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has come to the halls of civic government in the Boundary.

Midway Mayor Randy Kappes accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge and asked fellow council members Dick Dunsdon

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge came to the municipal halls of the West Boundary last week when Greenwood Mayor Nipper Kettle accepted the challenge that came from Greenwood City Hall receptionist Liz Mann.

In turn he tagged Mayor Randy Kappes from Midway, Area E Regional Director Bill Baird and Grand Forks Mayor Brian Taylor.

So on Wednesday, August 27 Kappes accepted the challenge and asked fellow council members Dick Dunsdon, Marguerite Rotvold and Darrin Metcalf to do the honours. They looked every bit a municipal council happy in their work.

Kappes in turn nominated Midway Volunteer Fire Department Chief Walter Osellame and Deputies Gord Kamigochi and Earle Carpenter.
