Literature and classic movies in anime/graphic novel form

See video
I think it is a good idea to put literature in graphic novel and anime form because it will help young minds out learn about the classic that the previous generations read, like “Robinson Crusoe” and “Hamlet”, back in their times in high school and in college. When reading the graphic novel and watching the anime version adaptations of the classics, the young minds can see what the artist’s take on the original version like.

Bears are back! Bear Aware needs help!

We had the first bear report yesterday - a bear at the dumpster near Columbia and Queen.
 
Do you know of a problem dumpster or someone that would be willing to monitor a problem area?
Bear Aware is looking for volunteers to be Dumpster Deputies.  

Economy Boosted with an Anime Convention

There are many anime fans, or otakus, in the Kootenays and they might want to go to an anime convention in Vancouver, Calgary or Edmonton, which it will cost them time, gas (if they drive) and money. My goal is to have an anime convention in Rossland entitled Rosslanime (in Rossland) and it will coincide with a Rossland festival, like the Rossland Mountain Film Festival or Golden City Days respectively. All the proceeds after the convention will be split between Rossland Radio Cooperative & the Canadian Cancer Society.

Rossland Eagles support local child with borscht luncheon

The Rossland Eagles Auxiliary is hosting a borscht luncheon on Saturday, March 26th, 1 - 4 pm, in our upper hall.  This event is a benefit for Corbin Lew, a 10-year-old Castlegar boy, who has been diagnosed with Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma, a cancerous brain tumor.  Corbin's mother and twin brother are staying with him in Vancouver for the duration of his chemotherapy treatments, which is likely to be at least six months.

Real Food--really busy!

Huge Thank You

Thank you to the very kind person who turned in my keys to the post office front counter today. I'd left them on the window ledge & discovered they were missing on my way home. I'd have been locked out in the snow otherwise! And I learned a lesson: get a spare cut for myself! Thank you so much, whoever you are!
