Neighbourhood Resident, Mother of Triple Olympian, Volunteers at Whistler Olympic Village
By Sally DeAngelis
My son, Michael DeAngelis, played hockey inthree Olympics with team Italy:1992 AlbertvilleFrance, 1994 Lillehamar Norway, and 1998 inNagano Japan. Italy no longer has a team atthis level.The only games I previously attended werethe Nagano games. I was hosted by a Japanesefamily under the “home stay“ program forparents of athletes. We had a wonderful timewith this family. Twice, one of the daughters of the family, has come back to visit us in Canada.The rst time, I hosted her here in Kamloops.We took her to our trailer on Shuswap lake for adip in the lake etc. and to the top of Sunpeaksfor lunch.My girl friend and I just returned on Mondayfrom three weeks volunteering in Whistler atthe athletes village, 8 kilometers south of thetown of Whistler. Long shifts and early hoursbut met so many people from all over theworld who also came to volunteer. We havegained so many memories, so many friendsand a beautiful blue ski suit.

Step by Stepto a LargeNeighbourhoodPicnic
by Arjun Singh
’ve got my eye on a the bowl at the bottom of Greenstone Park, long and at with ample roomfor tables and chairs. Maybe we could have anarea where people could play chess and checkers,maybe an area where people could discuss politicsand the issues of the day, maybe an area devotedto a recipe exchange, maybe an area set aside to play frisbee,and maybe a place where folks could just relax and soak up theatmosphere. Really, the sky is the limit!What would it like if we organized a picnic and invited everybodyin the neighbourhood - all 1100 plus homes? Would people come?Should it be a potluck? Could we get awesome “door” prizes? Wouldwe need city permission to use the park in this way? What are besttimes and days to hold a picnic? What would be the benets? Whatwould be the challenges? Are there better locations than GreenstonePark?At one of the last lower Sahali neighbourhood get togethers therewas a feeling that we should try to organize an outdoor gathering.And I felt some energy around that little table at Taco Del Mar to helporganize such a gathering. These folks were a warm and welcomingbunch and I know they would love to work with others to think about,plan, and organize a wonderful event.We would love your participation!
