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
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
Hope to see you all again next year!
