A local knitting group has joined a Canada-wide initiative to knit and crochet toques for the Syrian refugees coming to Canada. The Lethbridge group is aiming for 250 toques total. the current tally is 118 toques, 29 cowls and scarves, and 6 pairs of mittens. I've knit seven toques to date and have a few more in the works.

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.

Through the UofL's Faculty of Management, we befriend a number of exchange students each semester. They don't live with us but we take them to see typical Canadian culture - hockey games, events in the community, etc. We will be attending the Pow Wow at the ENMAX Centre coming up on the Feb 20th weekend. This gives them a taste of Canadiana, but it is also a chance for us to learn from them.
