The rejected proposal was for a 60-bed facility at Fer- nie, a 27-bed facility for Spar- wood and a day care bed fa- cility at Elkford. The department of health, Victoria, has indicated it is prepared to approve hospital and day care facilities at Sparwood and Elkford but the preliminary step requires a recommendation from the regional district.

Those scheduled for tlie trip are di- rector Frank B'airclough of Spanvood, board chairman Vince Downey and regional district administrator Frank Bertoia.

At the recent carnival here, Frances Peta of Wren- tham, Janet Kudd of Leth- bridge, Jair'ie Folkins, 18, of Warner, and the Warner figure skaters, the first time on skates for in a n y, gave fine perform- ances. This ice is a big boost for lie village, Incorporated Nov. 10, 1913, with a population of 440 and growing. Community spirit is alive. Co- operation is Hie key word.
