Many hands…

Recent events show the Boundary at it's best! Evidence of what wonderful things we are capable of when we work together.

Recent community celebrations across the Boundary from Rock Creek to Greenwood have proven extremely successful this year.

It took two communities to do it, but Canada Day celebrations lasted from morning to dusk. A morning parade in Rock Creek and fireworks that night in Greenwood.

Two weeks later Greenwood excelled again with one of the largest Founder’s Day celebrations in recent years.

Last weekend it was Midway’s turn to shine – with the 15th annual Kettle River Day, the 5th annual JLB Memorial Kettle River Run and a high school reunion in James G, McMynn Municipal Park that brought together alumni from the 45 years that BCSS has been around.

While specific groups spearheaded each of these events, it took the work of many, many volunteers and organizations to make things happen.

Founder’s Day this year came together through weekly meetings that had representatives from nearly every group in town; and many of those groups were able to gain some leverage for their own agendas by participating.

Both the Greenwood Fire Department and the Greenwood Legacy Group were offering people the opportunity to enjoy a good meal – perfect pancakes from the firemen and the world famous fish and chips put out by the Legacy Group.

The Canada Day Parade and Celebration in Rock Creek was another fine example of many groups working together to make the day exceptional.

Last weekend in Midway the Kettle River Museum hosted their annual Kettle River Family Fun Day with willing volunteers staffing the concession at the gazebo in Frank Carpenter Park throughout the day.

The JLB Run wouldn’t be possible if not for the work of many groups and individuals.

All of these events show what we in the Boundary are truly capable of when we work together. Way to go folks!
