Summer is finally starting to come to a close. The wind is starting to blow and the leaves are already falling. The cool breezes are starting to roll in and along with them, rain. The number of events happening each weekend is slowly starting to dwindle.
This weekend is forecasted to be a bit wet on Friday but to clear up for the weekend. Saturday will start off with the Skeena Valley Farmer’s Market. Come down and see what the locals from our area make, bake, and grow.
That night at 7 PM is racing at the Terrace Speedway. Come on down and enjoy some racing. The Northcoast Nightmares Roller Derby Girls will be presenting the trophies.
Also at 7 PM is a coffeehouse “with a twist” at the Skeena Diversity Centre. There will be live music and painting.
At 7:30 PM the Copper Mountain String Band will be having their CD release party for their new album, Midnight Train. Come on down to the McColl Playhouse and show your support.
If you want to listen to music of a different style then you can head down to Georges in the Northern Motor Inn at 9:30 PM, where A.W.O.L. will be rocking the stage.
Sunday is also a relatively uneventful day. There will be the George Little House flea market starting at 10 AM.
Later at 2 PM, the races at the Speedway will continue with Kiddies Day. Bring your children and they can get to ride in their favourite car.
Just a reminder to anybody traveling, there are road closures on Highway 37 north to the Yukon due to the Cassiar forest fire. Also there are other possible road closures towards the Houston area so make sure to double check on the area you are going to. Have a safe weekend.
Copper Mountain String Band has their CD release party this Saturday at the McColl Playhouse.
A.W.O.L. takes the stage at Georges in the Northern Motor Inn.
Cassiar fire is still burning out of control.

Some people just give up too early !
I've been swimming in The Lake on beautiful warm days at the start of October !
Needless to say, September has great potential and although Mother Nature can use some rain, it is far from time to write off summer, which "officially" ends September 22nd.
Falling leaves do not a Fall make.
