Sadie Bayley’s project “What Really Happened That Night — The 1898 S.S. City of Ainsworth Tragedy” (above), was one of five selected at the April 7 heritage fair to attend the regional fair in Kelowna on April 27 and 28. Her project chronicled the final hours of the sternwheeler that sank in Kootenay Lake near Crawford Bay.

Also chosen to proceed to the Kelowna fair were Arman Tarman (Aboriginal creation stories), Aurora Jarvis (the Frank Slide), Micah Shurgelo (the Froebe helicopter) and Timmy Faulks (Alexander Graham Bell).

Creston Mayor Ron Toyota was among the judges at the fair, and, joined by Erin Harris, also enjoyed presentations by Grade 2 student Brayden (left) on Tim Hortons and Grade 6 student Darcie (below) on the Haida.
