Congratulations go to lucky prize winners!  In order to guarantee rigorous integrity in the 2017 SLUGS Father’s Day Raffle, trusted Village employee, Amanda Murphy, was recruited to draw the three winners of the highly anticipated prizes.  Much appreciation to Amanda. The three lucky raffle winners, from first to third, are:  Renee Banner,  Francie Oldham, Brian Magnuson.   Thanks goes to the prize donors, Nakusp Hot Springs, Silverton Building Supplies and Dick Callison, for their generous contributions to maintenance and upkeep of the Kohan Reflection Garden.  Thanks is also due to all the dedicated ticket sellers.  Demand was high for a chance to win the valuable prizes and all the tickets were sold a week ahead of time. SLUGS vehemently denies accusations that a certain Board member took advantage of local citizens, at a vulnerable time, by cruising the May Days Beer Garden, ticket book and change purse in hand!  On the other hand, the Society rewards all Board members who take initiative with creative fundraising strategies.  Appreciations to everyone who helped!

The Lucerne Grade 2/3 class has been busy building bat houses (nursery chambers).  We have 18 of these available for free at the school.  Please read the criteria for the location to ensure success and, if you can meet this criteria and would like a house, please contact the school.  Criteria:  At least 3m (10ft)high but 12′ to 20′ is better.  South, or southeast facing to ensure correct solar exposure. In an uncluttered location that does not have branches, buildings, or poles in front of it, and away from lights or high wind.   If you have the space, please consider one of these houses.  The White Nose disease is currently in Washington state and on its way here. Providing many different places for bats to roost can help to contain the disease.
