Legion Week Open House on Sunday, June 24 featured a scavenger hunt for information in the War Heroes Museum. Students, accompanied by their parents, were directed through the Museum in search of answers to specific questions.

 All participants went home with a treat bag compliments of Robson Valley Region, Valemount Petro Canada, and the Royal Canadian Legion, and  at the end of the day, one  name was drawn for the grand prize - a pool party for six at the Best Western Valemount Inn & Suites, won by Jayden Han. Well done everyone.
