Welcome to the Megaphone. This is your place to post the news that matters to you. If someone's getting married or getting born, this is the place to let your community know. If you want to thank someone for a good turn or lambaste the noisy, nosy, or woefully ignorant, do it here.

Rossland Radio on hiatus

Due to lack of local support, ROssland Radio is on hiatus. ROssland Radio did not do anything wrong to the community, but give a voice to people who want to play their favorite music. All it needed was more volunteers to help with the events and do show.

Rossland Residents Respond Generously

The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is a volunteer driven organization.  It is because of volunteerism that the CCS is able to raise the funds needed to deliver support to those living with cancer, continue research into earlier detection and improved diagnostics, and continue ongoing education to lower the risks of developing cancer. 
 
The CCS volunteers in Rossland who sold daffodils and went door to door canvassing in April exemplify volunteerism.

Let's create something truly outstanding for our kids!
