CHBA-CI honoured at Vancouver banquet
The Canadian Home Builders’ Association of B.C. has handed two trophies to the Central Interior branch of the association.
The Canadian Home Builders’ Association- Central Interior (CHBA-CI) has been named Local Association of the Year, while CHBA-CI president Matt McCurrach has received the Rooftopper Award.
The awards were presented at the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of B.C. President’s Night in Vancouver on Sept. 27.
“This was a pleasant surprise,” McCurrach said.
“We make every effort to represent our members at all three levels of government and see the provincial association as a valuable resource to help us with this mandate.”
The CHBA-CI previously won the provincial honour in 2005-2006 and in 2009-2010.
Eat Greek, help the needy
The New Life Mission in Kamloops will be getting a helping hand with a decidedly Greek flavour.

Do the Course at Sun Rivers
People In Motion will be the charity of choice on Nov. 3 when the Sun Rivers Resort Community hosts its first annual Do The Course, a walk/run featuring one-, five- and 10-kilometre routes winding through the breathtaking terrain of Sun Rivers.
Registration will begin at 8 a.m., followed by warm-up at 8:45 a.m. and the walk/run at 9 a.m.
The one-kilometre route will be fully accessible for all mobility levels, while the five- and 10-kilometre options will take participants through Sun Rivers walking trails and golf-course paths — terrain yet to be experienced and enjoyed by non-golfers.
