Women And Work Exhibit At Museum

Our special exhibit this fall, winter and spring looks at the various tasks women undertook in the North Peace from typical women’s jobs like nurse or teacher to less typical jobs such as trapper, interpreter, and politician. It also looks at a variety of handicrafts from mukluks to embroidered tablecloths made by local women. This is one of our largest exhibits with twenty-two interpretive signs spread out around the museum. These purple signs are integrated into many of our permanent exhibits, showing that women in this area were involved in all different kinds of work inside and outside this home. Marjo Wheat and Heather Sjoblom curated this exhibit. This exhibit is on display at the museum until May 31, 2019.

Local Resident Brings Madd Canada Message To Fsj

Fort St John, BC – MADD Canada is pleased to announce Caitlyn Dingwell as its new volunteer Community Leader in Fort St John, BC.    In the role, Ms. Dingwell is part of a nation-wide network of volunteers who represent MADD Canada and deliver its message and programs to local communities.  “Our Chapters and Community Leaders undertake a diverse range of activities within their communities to help achieve MADD Canada’s mission of stopping impaired driving and supporting the victims of this violent crime,” said MADD Canada National President Patricia Hynes-Coates.  “They truly are the heart and soul of our organization. We are proud to welcome Ms. Dingwell to our amazing and dedicated volunteer team.”  As a new Community Leader, Ms. Dingwell will focus much of her initial efforts around public awareness and education initiatives and building partnerships with stakeholder and community organizations with similar goals of ending impaired driving.    Crashes involving alcohol and/or drugs are the leading criminal cause of death in Canada. On average, approximately 4 people are killed each day in crashes involving alcohol and/or drugs.   “These deaths and injuries are completely preventable. Accidents involving impaired driving can be avoided if people do not get behind the wheel when under the influence of alcohol or drugs,” said Dingwell “I want to be part of the solution and I am confident that Fort St John will be supportive of the effort to stop these senseless tragedies from occurring on our roads and in our community.”      About MADD Canada MADD Canada (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) is a national, charitable organization that is committed to stopping impaired driving and supporting victims of this violent crime. With volunteer-driven groups in more than 100 communities across Canada, MADD Canada aims to offer support services to victims, heighten awareness of the dangers of impaired driving and save lives and prevent injuries on our roads.       For more information, please contact:  Caitlyn Dingwell at FSJMADD@gmail.com

Tips For Pet Owners

Summer time often means holidays, and that means pets can be in different circumstances than they are used to.    If you are going away and taking pets with you, or have to leave your pet in the care of someone at home, please consider the following:   **Your pet MAY run away while you are gone. Keep in contact with your sitter and provide them with the number to the local SPCA. (ours is 785 SPCA or 785-7722)   **If you live out of town or in between locations, provide numbers to ALL the SPCAs or Humane Societies in the area, such as Dawson, Grande Prairie, 100 Mile House, etc. Sometimes people pick up wandering animals and bring them to wherever they are traveling to.    **Keep a CURRENT and CLEAR picture of your pet with you or with your sitter. Digital cameras are great for this... and enable you to e-mail photos to everyone, if your pet goes missing. Multiple angles are a good idea too.    **Make sure you have a current city license and tag on your pet. If you don't, at least have your phone number engraved on a tag, or printed with permanent marker on his collar. Include your area code.   **Consider having your pet tattooed or microchipped (and keep your information current). When pets are brought into shelters, they are routinely scanned and checked for both. Sometimes things are very busy, or we don't have current information associated with the pet, so it is up to owners to check with shelters and not wait for us to call.   **If you find or lose a pet, please call the area SPCA immediately to give us information. Put up posters, post on the Internet (fsjnow.com has a lost and found section in the classifieds), and e-mail everyone in your area that can pass the word (and picture) on! Facebook has a number of Lost/Found pet groups, too.    **At the shelter, we can only hang on to pets for a short time before they become available for adoption, so time is of the essence!     We hope that you will never have the heartache of losing a pet, but if you do, we hope that a happy reunion comes quickly!
