A record number of people have sign up to be Big Brothers and Big Sisters. The local agency held their annual Roof Top Challenge Friday and Saturday and had 27 people sign up to mentor a child.
Danielle Armstrong is the Executive Director and says sitting on the roof of the North Peace Pool paid off. [asset|aid=309|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=efc85b76654025eb5baae49fb2a46937-Danielle Armstrong – 1_1_Pub.mp3]
