Perhaps the single most important aspect of support, however, is you... our audience. Without you our vision would remain in our heads, something we talked about but could not bring to fruition. You came out to our reading events, supported us and our guest writers with your attendance, interest and passion for the literary arts. Thanks so much. For you, we will strive to continually do better.

We look forward to seeing you at Literary Leanings 2007 (February) and the Whistler Writers Festival 2007 (September).

Ken would appreciate this

Thank you to the individuals involved in donating the medical monitor (for patients) to the Whistler Ambulance crew. This monitor will allow us to assess patients quickly and accurately while on calls. This has been a very thoughtful and generous gesture.

We are greatly indebted to all who took part in the Ken Quon Memorial race/ride. Particular thanks to Tom Thomson, Gary Baker, Tim Pugh, Cynthia and Jim Chan, Buffy Woods, Francis and Ann Chiasson, Chris Wetaski, Brad Skerritt, David Rushbrook, WORCA and all the volunteers who made the event, and thus the donation, possible.

Ken Quon was an active, participating, caring member of our community. This medical monitor will aid us in providing care to people in need. Ken was always trying to help others, and knowing Ken he would be happy having this equipment as his legacy.

Thank you, Ken.

Scott Hepworth

Crew members, station 224,




Where’s the buzz?

Just read your column, and I agree there is no Olympic buzz in this town, and why? Because there is no visual evidence of any infrastructure that makes people say, “Oh wow look at that, is that for the Olympics? Wow!”
