Sointula greets speeders

More than a hundred North Island youths invaded Malcolm Island last week for the annual Districtwide Cross Country Run for grades 2-7.

SOINTULA—More than a hundred North Island youths, including a delegation from Gold River and Tahsis, invaded Malcolm Island last week for the annual Districtwide Cross Country Run for grades 2-7.

Students were treated to sunny skies, a mild breeze and plenty of snacks and prize ribbons.

One year after the event was moved to Port McNeill due to a cougar scare in Sointula, it returned to Malcolm Island even as a cougar was being sought in Port McNeill.
