What is your favourite fall thing?
Mine is hiking through the forest when the leaves are crunchy! Hopefully, this fall I'll have the chance to do so - we just need this rain to stop!!
Did you do a Summer Photo Scavenger Hunt with your friends and family?
I hope you did, and had fun finding new things and seeing the beauty in the small stuff :)

You may have heard that the Humane Society is facing closure -
when we were visiting the shelter, we learned that 2 years ago they housed over
600 evacuee cats, and the next year another 150 plus more -
ALL WITHOUT GOVERNMENT FUNDING OR REIMBURSEMENT!
Anyone who owns a pet knows that they aren't inexpensive
- can you imagine multiplying your monthly pet spending by 600????? WOW!
The PG Humane Society relies on our community to keep it's doors open
so they can keep on doing the amazing work they have been for all animals.
You can donate here www.pghumanesociety.ca/donate or by going into the shelter or
stopping by a number of local busineses and offices who have
Change 4 Change cans - every nickel, dime, dollar add up!
They also have a need for volunteers - check that out here www.pghumanesociety.ca/volunteer

The Central BC Railway and Forestry Museum is our last stop in our 30th Anniversary Summer Promotion for July! Everyone needs to add the museum to their summer itinerary,
we had the BEST time there taking pictures - the hospitality was AMAZING!
Gingy is thinking a second career as a Train Engineer might be fun ;)
The Railway & Forestry Museum revives Prince George's captivating history back to an era when the railway was the region's lifeline and forestry was becoming BC's future.
The Museum presents an interesting and fun industrial heritage attraction in a spacious park-like setting, where visitors are free to enjoy a "hands on - climb aboard" experience.
(Excerpt from the museum's website https://www.pgrfm.bc.ca/)
The museum has their Family Fun Day coming up on August 24 from 11 AM- 4 PM. Admission will be free by donation to the Two Bunnies Rescue or the PG Humane Society - all the details can be found here https://www.facebook.com/events/503300283771993/ Sounds like a fun day!
