Meet the Raine Hamilton Trio before the concert

BV Concert Association and CICK FM hosting mini concert ahead of Smithers Della Herman performance.

Setting the record straight: I made a mistake last week saying I was on my way to Osoyoos. I actually reached Osoyoos Feb. 24 and am well into my next goal of walking to Salmo, 339,240 steps. Next will be Yahk, once there I will start walking along the border towards my goal of the other side of Canada.
