Salmon Arm author Shelley Palik (second from right), joined by aunt Lucienne McNutt (left) of Sicamous, donates a copy of her children’s book, Bad Attitude, to Sicamous Mayor Darrell Trouton, and a cheque for $100 to Canadian Red Cross fund manager Jan Bowden. Inspired by the catastrophic flooding events in Sicamous, Palik turned the sale of her book into a fundraising effort, with a dollar from every book sold up to Nov. 2 going to the Red Cross. The money will go help residents with “practical needs” resulting from the flooding.
