The Regional District of East Kootenay will be holding community meetings in both Electoral Areas A and G later this month.

Do you remember back in elementary school when you were asked to write “I am” in the middle of the page and you had to write all the things that made you you around it? Daughter, brother, reader, athlete etc. If I asked you to do that today, what words would you write outside of your profession and family roles? What are your current passions? If you have difficulty answering those questions, please know that you are not alone. I often ask people to do this exercise and receive blank stares in return.
