Plastic Bags... Again

It seems once again the topic of the plastic bag ban is beginning to resurface as one resident is trying to reinstate the use of plastic bags in Fort McMurray.

As much as I get frustrated with not having plastic bags I have to say I’m on the fence with this one. Where I’m from we have big recycling bins for plastic bags outside of grocery stores… if this were introduced here I see no problem bringing back plastic bags. I’m also an avid user for using plastic bags for other purposes, anything from using them as a garbage bag in the car, to picking up after your dog on the trails. There are many ways we can recycle them!

Will we as a community embrace other ways to use them? I don’t know. We live in the midst of a beautiful forest and I already see too much garbage everywhere. Maybe for now we should keep the bag ban, until we can be more responsible.

The first annual Servus Credit Union Spring Food Drive for the Wood Buffalo Food Bank is this weekend, and we would love it if you signed up to volunteer!

The need is so great in our community that the Food Bank had to host another food drive in order to meet demand and continue to serve our region.

Wood Buffalo, help us make it happen! If you’d like to volunteer to work a shift at a local grocery store collecting food donations check out this link:

We’ll be broadcasting live all weekend long from local grocery stores. Stop by, say hi, and drop off a donation! Every little helps!

Sometimes it pays to have a quirky name… literally! While you may think my name is unique, what would you say to a couple named Joel Burger and Ashley King?

The couple has been known as Burger King since they were in 5th grade together! So what happened when they got engaged? Well Burger King stepped up and is paying for their wedding and providing gifts!

Who doesn’t love a story like that!

Double Bluff on April Fools Day

Did you get fooled on April 1st this year? We enjoyed pulling some pranks on one another at the station. There’s nothing like walking face-first into Saran Wrap in the dark first thing in the morning (thanks JD). JD took the photo above of his desk... I may have enjoyed reltaliation.

But what you say if you read an ad in a newspaper on April 1st telling you to be the first person to arrive at a car dealership to win a free car. A double bluff on April Fool’s Day!

One woman in New Zealand took no chances and made sure she was the first at the dealership on April 1stand it paid off! She was given a $50,000 BMW! Now I’m just waiting for a dealership in Fort McMurray to offer a similar promotion!
