In early May 2019, the Allen family—Erinne, her husband, their three children and two dogs—moved from Cold Lake, Alberta, to Grand Forks, B.C. Erinne is the new events manager for Grand Forks and the Kootenay Boundary area, hired for two years through a Rural Dividend grant. Her 10 years of working in the wedding and events industry provides her with a solid base of experience.

As usual, Grand Forks will hold its car show in June, its Canada Day celebration, its Party in the Streets and CannaFest. Other events are being planned. For more information, contact [email protected]
