Lunch should be an easy choice today as the local political staff are serving up burgers out in front of Safeway and the CFTK staff are doing the same across from the Post Office.
Robin Austin with his staff and Nathan Cullens staff are hosting a fundraising barbecue to support programs of the Terrace Art Gallery. $5 for a hot dog or burger, salad and a drink. There is free entertainment and door prizes. Local businesses, the RCMP and Terrace Fire Department are helping too.
The Crime Stoppers Jail and Bail is underway with the Terrace RCMP. You can jail your favorite coworker, boss or friend in this fundraiser for Crimestoppers. Those chosen get escorted to jail set up in the Astral parking lot.
The featured vehicle for Hot August Nites Drag Racing, “Prairie Gold” is also at the Jail and Bail. This is no ordinary drag racing machine. It’s labeled “the meanest, greenest, fasted bio-diesel car in the world”!
This is where I spent the lunch hour today. It was almost fun even on a busy day :)
