Just SLOW DOWN

With the warm temperature finally returning upon us, children will be spending more and more time outside. Therefore, Whyte Ridge Community Center wants to remind all drivers to slow down in the areas where kids may be present. Driving at speed limit can be too fast, as it is hard to notice the little ones that could suddenly appear from nowhere.

Let’s not put the life of children at risk! Drive carefully as if your own children were playing.

Thank you on behalf of all parents.

I used to take a bus to work from where we lived before, so the commute to work was also new to me. At 7 am in the morning the bus is usually pretty empty. The passengers are either still sleepy, or busy looking into their devices without paying much attention to people around them. All of them, except one fellow. He looked quite different from others. He smiled to everyone on the bus, and had a small talk with people sitting next to him. I quickly found that he was a musician. So on one of the mornings, I sat next to him and had a chat.

Since music is my passion, we often chat about his music life and the things he likes doing. One day, after pushing our bus out of deep snow, Steven told me something that I decided to share with you.
