Point Roberts Emergency Preparedness group sponsored a CERT training class October 3, 4, and 5th 2010. 19 students were in attendance and PREP now has two certified CERT instructors who live in Point Roberts. Congratulations to the PREP team, CERT instructors Virginia Lester/Andrew Breiteneder, and CERT grads!
Your PREP volunteers are pleased to announce that the 2nd annual PREP/Food Bank “Let’s Shake Up the Point” fundraiser will be held Thursday, June 17 at 6 p.m. at the South Beach House restaurant. Music, dancing, dinner and silent auction are the events for the evening. All this for $25 per person. This is a time to get together with all your friends for a fun-filled evening. All 126 tickets sold out last year and sales will start in May. You can also call Henry at 945-1711 to buy a ticket! Hope to see you all again this year!

The PREP (Point Roberts emergency preparedness committee) has been working to activate a community self-sufficiency plan for Point Roberts. Why? Living in this wonderful rural peninsula attached to Canada, isolated from the mainland United States, many of us forget the realities we will face when some natural disaster eventually befalls us.
