Now readers, everyone knows that Cranbrook and Kimberley are for lovers. We are the centre of romance for southeast B.C.
Other Kootenay communities, who shall remain nameless, have lately challenged our justifiable reputation for love, our place as the Paris of the Rocky Mountain Trench (jointly speaking), but we can’t let this go without response.
Therefore, we are holding a contest of connubiability, for the upcoming occasion of Valentine’s Day, when Love is King. Look to the left of this story to see the details.
Have you had time to read our house advertisement? Right! To reiterate — send us a synopsis of how you and your loved one met — the crazier, the more auspicious, the more unlikely the better. Keep it short — 150 words or less. A random draw will be held to choose the winning couple — with the prize of two tickets to red hot Country Music star Johnny Reid, appearing in Cranbrook Feb. 29 at Western Financial Place.
And to kick things off, here are Melodie and Steven, pictured above with their story. Dear readers, photos are optional, but welcome.
