Survival Kids come to Alberni

The Port Alberni RCMP are bringing their survival program to the Alberni Valley after starting it in Bamfield a year-and-a-half ago. The program aims to teach kids responsibility in day-to-day life through outdoor survival skills.

Kiwanis Week proclaimed

April 6-12 was proclaimed Kiwanis International Centennial Week by city council.

Victim services funded

While the city had been asked, council said that it was more fitting to fund it from the ACRD as victim’s services fund the whole of the Alberni Valley and Bamfield.
