Former Trail Mayor Dieter Bogs and his partner Flo Woodhouse had 7 pages from a holiday gift calendar professionally framed before donating the works to Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital's paediatric unit. The calendar was a gift from Trail’s twin city Tsukui, Japan. This program hosted numerous international exchanges that fostered friendships and introduced east-to-west culture to all who participated. With the calendar containing colourful and detailed images of Disney's most popular characters, Bogs and Woodhouse decided they would make the perfect gift for patients and visitors to the local children's ward. The pair gathered 4 of their grandchildren last week for a look-see of the art, and by the look on the youngsters faces, the donation will keep children and parents smiling for many years to come.
