Keely Knutson, Raelyn Metcalfe, Devan Genereux, Ashton Mitzel, Emilly Loski, Sarah Jeffery and Maia Cervellin from Port Coquitlam’s K&S Dance Productions will start rehearsals this month to prepare for the upcoming World Dance Championships. The Tri-City group was chosen to represent Canada at the event, which runs Oct. 1 to 7 in Munich, Germany, and sees hundreds of dancers compete for the international title.
Coast Capital Savings and Douglas College Foundation reps spent Tuesday morning at the credit union’s Johnson Street branch in Coquitlam to count coins for student aid at the college. So far about 100 pounds of pennies have rolled in for the drive that ends Sept. 30.
Three Tri-City-based companies dug up silver hardware last week for their handiwork. The Vancouver Regional Construction Association singled out PML Professional Mechanical for its work on the Fort St. James Hospital, Whitewater Concrete for its IKEA Richmond relocation project and M&L Painting for its Hotel Georgia renovations at the swanky Vancouver establishment. From the list of silver winners, the association will announce in October who will win the gold prizes at a gala dinner. “The silver award winners are true leaders in the industry,” said association president Keith Sashaw, in a news release.“They all represent companies that were able to bring projects of the highest calibre in on time and on budget.”
