Tonight’s fines by Mark Wilson were in keeping with the Americarna event last week by testing us on the meaning of all the symbols, lines and stars in the American flag. No need for a referendum there!



Tonight’s soap by Robin Aitken was an exercise in how to pick out a moan from every page in the Daily News!


Guest Speaker

Tonight’s guest was our very own Vicki Ingles who presented her journey from selling people (Recruitment) to selling property. Vicky has completed her Real Estate exams and can now put the “REAL” back into Real Estate with her new job at Western First National. Vicki also explained the legal process into marketing properties which can sometime cause distain for the wrong reason and we have a better understanding of it all. With Vicki’s desire to help with whatever, I think she could sell ice blocks to the Inuit!


Parting Thought:-

Tonight’s parting thought by Richard Hodges:

“One’s first step to wisdom is to question everything- and one’s last is to come to terms with everything”
