Encouraging a healthy start for Castlegar youth

The Kootenay Firefighters recent donation has put the fundraising for the toddler fire engine for Kinsmen Park over the top. The Castlegar Early Childhood Advisory Council (CECAC) has now ordered the play equipment, and anticipates installation by the City in time for summer. Pictured here for the $500 cheque presentation at the Castlegar Fire Hall, from left to right, are: Deputy Chief Duane Monsen, CECAC Coordinator Penny Tees, Fire Chief Gerry Rempel, and Captain Ray Hackett. - Submitted
