HOPE OPENS

Grade 9 student Andrew Sahaydak cut the ribbon at this month's opening of the Hope Lutheran Christian School in Port Coquitlam. The Sept. 8 opening, led by Pastor Hautz, was attended by teachers, school board representatives, staff and school families. As well, PoCo Mayor Greg Moore and Rev. Don Schiemann, president of the Alberta-BC District of Lutheran Church–Canada, were also on hand.

9/11 TRIBUTE

Port Coquitlam fire chief Nick Delmonico and on-duty firefighters took time out Tuesday to pay tribute to the fallen smoke-eaters who died on Sept. 11, 2001. The department held a service at Firehall No. 1 at 9:11 a.m. and lowered the flags out of respect for the men and women who ran to the World Trade Centre 11 years ago.
