"The idea is that we're trying to limit sex selection, especially for females," said president Dorothy Johansen of Edmonton. For full story see The B.C. Catholic website.

Columbus Residence fundraiser features wine and cheese reception, vacation package raffle

The flavour may have changed for this year's Columbus Residence fundraiser, but the taste for excitement remains. Instead of their usual sit-down dinner, the Knights of Columbus organization, which provides housing for seniors, hosted a wine and cheese reception. It featured a raffle that will whisk lucky winners away to the Napa Valley, Whistler, or Alaska. For full story see The B.C. Catholic website.
