A big thank-you to Lawrence for inviting us into his workshop and spending his Saturday afternoon guiding us through the process of taking apart, cleaning, sharpening, and putting back together our shears and clippers! The best thing is that I now feel confident enough to take a tool apart and put it back together on my own. It was super fun and the results were amazing! Check out the before and after pics below.

Our heartfelt congratulations go to Laura Kalina, founder of the KFPC, on a most well-deserved recognition of exemplary service by the City of Kamloops! The Overlanders/Pioneer Spirit Award is only presented in exceptional circumstances and for extraordinary accomplishments. The statue commemorates the arrival of the Overlanders in 1862 and depicts Catherine and Augustus Schubert and one of their seven children. It represents the pioneer spirit and the strength of character of those who built our community. Read more
