Editor, The Times:

Earth Day will be on April 22, 2012, and the newly forming Rural Circle Co-op will host a fundraiser and informational day at the Elks Hall to talk about the magic of the butterfly and the monarch’s migration route.

For $10 a Mexican lunch will be served and crafts for kids will be enjoyed with Kathie Petrie. Helen Knight, a local naturalist, will give a slide show and presentation on the life story of the monarch butterflies and their wondrous journey. Anyone having attended other presentations put on by Helen over the years will realize that they are a real treat.

If there is time we (Sharon Neufeld and Cheryl Thomas) will combine our pictures from our trip to the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary in Anganguao, Mexico, and would love to share our experience with you as well. Having been in the presence of 40,000 butterflies is a life-altering experience.

If you are interested in finding out more about the events or the co-op please feel free to contact us (Cheryl at 250-674-3260 or Sharon at 250-674-2538) or watch for posters and Facebook posts.
