Blood Reserve team headed for Haiti

Speaking of Haiti, a paramedic/firefighter friend of mine, Jon Davis, is part of a group from the Blood Reserve traveling there to aid the relief effort. Via the Lethbridge Herald:

The plight of Haiti’s quake victims has plucked at the heartstrings of both young and old on the Blood Reserve, and the community’s lone physician is organizing a medical relief trip to depart in March.

Dr. Esther Tailfeathers has amassed people from the Blood Tribe Dept. of Health that includes Registered Nurses, paramedics, support staff and others.

They’ll be setting off in about 8 days. Good luck, Jon!

Big Band Boogie

Like Bob Ross says, there are things such as “happy mistakes.” It’s like the time I planned to go out for a night of Jive dancing at a swingers’ party, but ended up doing the Polka instead!

This Saturday, The Kinsmen Club of Lethbridge is holding the 4th Annual Big Band Boogie. The night includes a free dance lesson, as well as silent auction. Proceeds from the event go to benefit MS Society of Canada.

Get out your dancing shoes, as there’s nothing better than a night of big band and swing dancing! It all starts at 7:30PM at the El Rancho Convention Centre.
