Back Pink in the Rink
Donated blood at Canadian Blood Services for the first time in more than 10 years.
I'm a member of the Rocky Mountain Book Award Committee, an Alberta-wide reader's choice award for children based here in Lethbridge. Between Dec and May, I'll read 70-80 new Canadian books for grades 4-7 students to select the shortlist. Many schools and libraries in the province--and Lethbridge!--will sign up to participate, and the kids will pick the winner.
Took some books in good shape to the Little Lethbridge Libraries in Kinsmen Park and on 7th Ave, and stopped to tidy up the shelf and exchange books that weren't moving between the two locations.
I will be making my fifth blood donation on Friday, March 4. I'm committed to going every 8 weeks! A little time (and a little pain) but it makes a big impact. Also there are cookies.
I nominated the Piggyback Poutinerie for the Taking Care of Business Downtown Champion Award. In addition to looking after our stomachs with their delicious poutine, Dylan and Wendy are always looking out for Lethbridge's furry friends. They fundraise for organizations like Prairie Pitbull Rescue, and always have fresh water available for hot puppies in the summer.
