No nuts at Halloween

For Whistler's peanut allergic children Halloween is more then scary, it can be deadly.

Please consider choosing peanut-free candy when donating to Halloween events this year.

Thank you to the parents and local schools for their support in keeping our children safe.

Thank you to Whistler-Blackcomb for a peanut free Whister Kids program.

You are lifesavers!

Many hands make great soup!

The Alta Lake School would like to thank all the Whistler restaurants and businesses who helped make this year's annual Harvest Soup Contest the most delicious one yet! The outstanding soup lineup included The Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub's "Irish Clam Chowder", Thai One On's yummy "Tom Yum", The Fairmont Chateau's "Ginger Pumpkin with a Chai Infusion", The Beet Root's "Sweet Thai Chili Corn with Cilantro". The winner of the most popular soup was chef Neil Kearns, from Quattro at Whistler's, "Roasted Butternut Squash with a Lillooet Honey Creme Fraiche". Marketplace IGA supplied the fresh rolls and Slopeside Supply donated spoons for all.

Thank you to everyone who came out on the beautiful Thanksgiving afternoon to eat, serve and help with set-up and clean-up. In three hours just over 400 bowls of soup were served. It was especially pleasing to hear from so many people how the event has become a part of their family's Thanksgiving tradition.

Hope to see you all again next year!

Fish group wraps up

The Whistler Fisheries Stewardship Group is wrapping up after another fantastic season. We would like to thank all of our volunteers and supporters who helped make this year a success, including The Whistler Blackcomb EnviroFund and the American Friends of Whistler for funding our instream work projects and the Whistler Blackcomb Habitat Improvement Team without whom we would not be able to carry our projects out; our many sponsors and supporters of our annual Rivers Day celebration, the Resort Municipality of Whistler for lending their time and expertise to our habitat improvements on the River of Golden Dreams, Pique Newsmagazine and Whistler Question for covering our news articles, and finally, our many dedicated volunteers who have helped make the Whistler Fisheries Stewardship Group great. Thanks for a great season, and see you next year.
