The Whistler Skiers’ Chapel needs help. The A-frame chapel in Whistler Creek, currently shortlisted as one of Whistler’s heritage buildings, is in need of repair. Saturday, Oct. 5 is designated Chapel Repair Day. Volunteers are needed to help out with painting (bring your own brush) and carpentry work (bring your own tools). Equipment such as ladders and sanders are also needed. Volunteers interested in helping with labour or donations should call Eileen Tomalty at 932-2004. Dinner With a Difference is a new weekly dinner and discussion with guest speakers at Boston Pizza. Alternative medicine and healing, death and afterlife, psychic intuition, native spirituality and meditation are some of the spiritually-related subjects proposed for discussion, beginning Oct. 2. The Wednesday dinners will cost $7 and take place from 5:45 to 7:30 p.m. Childcare is also available. The dinners are sponsored by the United Church, Boston Pizza and Brio Haus Bed and Breakfast. Diana Habkirk of the United Church emphasizes the dinners are not slanted toward Christianity or the church. Rather, they are a service currently unavailable in Whistler which the church is pleased to provide. The first guest speaker will be Caroline Hachey on Meditation and Spirituality. The Oct. 16 speaker will be Lorna Gardiner, who will discuss Hatha yoga. Call Habkirk at 932-3313 for more information.
