Fun calendar released

The Women's Institute calendar was conceived as a way to raise money—proceeds will go towards victims of the Rock Creek fire.

Rock Creek Women’s Institute donned antique costumes and big smiles for their 2016 calendar. Proceeds will go to victims of the Rock Creek Fire. Missing from photo is member Lynn Wickens.

The Rock Creek Women’s Institute is celebrating a special anniversary next year, and to commemorate it have released a 2016 calendar.

Featuring a series of whimsical photographs of institute members, the calendar was conceived as a way to raise money for the institute’s various charitable interests, which include donations to the Partners in Parenting Conference and Parkview Manor.

Proceeds will now go toward helping victims of the Rock Creek fire.

Members also wanted to use the calendar as an educational tool regarding the history and mandate of the organization, and that information is included in the pages of the publication.

John Hibberson, former Boundary Central Secondary School teacher and current principal of the Midway and Beyond Little Theatre, donated the bulk of the photography and post-processing, and the period costumes for photo shoots were provided by Colleen Smith, owner of Miss Sophie’s Old Time Photos, who also made matching hats for each of the members.

The calendar is available at Greenwood’s Deadwood Junction, Freeman’s Farm Supply and Rags, Relics and Rutabagas in Rock Creek. It will also be sold at the upcoming fall fair.
