The Chat is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6 at Maurice Young Millennium Place. Discussions regarding the transportation options for the Sea to Sky Highway will be discussed at a future Fireside Chat.

The race is on for the third annual raffle at the Myrtle Philip Community School and tickets are going fast.

The raffle draw is on Dec. 11 but the tickets have to be turned into the school by Friday, Nov. 30.
