Sponsored this month by HLW Chartered Professional Accountants First, a service notice: We’re going to be switching our domain registration service (from one I’ve never heard of to one that has actual real support humans) this weekend. Plan to get it done late Saturday night so everything should be back to normal by Sunday. But if you have any issues with the website or email (which will all remain the same addresses and functionality) on Sunday morning, it’s probably just taking some extra time for the name servers to resolve....

Sorry about the confusion last week with which dates were “this coming weekend”, and then mixing up which days were the 28th and 29th; numbers and counting is hard sometimes. Which is why (this is whatcha call a segué, folks), you should trust the important money math in your life to people who do that kinda stuff, all day, every day - like HLW Accountants - our newsletter sponsor this month. For all of your accounting needs - corporate, personal, estate, bookkeeping, etc. - HLW can help you out. PHONE:...

I don’t know about you, but I’m gonna call the meets (Triple Pentathlon and Jamboree) this past weekend a resounding success!! Thank you SO MUCH to all who volunteered their time and energy; the coaches; and of course the swimmers for doing what they do, because without them….well, we’d all look pretty foolish standing around the pool yelling and waving our arms and all that. Triple Pentathlon Results Jamboree Results From Anne Benn, one of our referees at the meets: Thank you to all of the officials and volunteers who...

I know: You read all the way to the bottom of the newsletter last week and thought….kinda feels like something’s missing (?). Well, turns out I can embed YouTube videos and they’ll show up in the newsletter on the website, but unfortunately, they don’t show up in the associated email that goes out. ☹️ So, you all missed out on this gem (previously linked, but always awesome enough to re-run). Anyway, I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving sans turkeys raining from the sky). Our thanks once again to...

Well, congratulations to those who read all the way to the end of last week’s newsletter, thought something sounded familiar there toward the end…and noticed that the “cut-paste” job of the Monthly Swimmer Zoom Meetings…well, the “cut” didn’t quite take. ��♂️ While I figure out what went wrong in our CMS…let me remind you that the newsletter this month is sponsored one of the top interior design shops in the Okanagan...
