People have been asking “Why the Boundary Education Alliance?” They are wondering what the need is for this group to form and exist. To help answer this question we want to invite you to look through the window of what we observed in one specific example.
You may or may not know that in October, 2009 a road safety issue was reported by the School District #51 (SD #51) maintenance...
The purpose of my letter is to let the citizens of Rossland who were so generous in their donations of toques for Everest and quarters for porters know that we will be flying into the Everest region with the toques in two days.

We are in...
By now I imagine most of you have heard… I love how quickly rumors can circulate around this little town of ours! But in case you haven’t, I have some incredibly disheartening news.

The Winter Carnival in Rossland was such a success this year!
Thanks to Kelly Acheson, the Chair of the Carnival Committee and all her Committee members and the many, many volunteers that put the whole show together. There was so much to do and see at this year's Winter Carnival and I think it reached out to everyone in the community, whatever their special...
