Three things to do this weekend (Sept. 12 to 14)

1. If there’s a spicier celebrity appearance happening this weekend, we don’t know about it. Actress Jean Hamilton, 91, who puts "that s*** on everything" in the Franks RedHot TV ads, will be showing up to the Cloverdale Terry Fox Run on Sunday, Sept. 14, to speak about her three bouts with cancer and autograph bottles of the sauce, for donation. Hamilton will be at the Cloverdale Legion (17567 57th Ave.) for the run. Registration begins at 9 a.m. with the run beginning at 10 a.m. Other Terry Fox Runs in surrounding areas that day include North Delta, Newton, Fraser Heights and South Surrey. Most runs include a 1k, 5k and 10k route. Check for details on locations and registration times.

2. For kids and youth ages six to 16, a ball hockey tourney will be held at Fleetwood Community Centre on Saturday, Sept. 13, kicking off at 10 a.m. There will be music, a barbecue and all-day ball hockey. Registration is $100 per team, or $10 per individual. There is a threegame minimum, with each game being 30 minutes. Contact Laura Grandison at 604-501-5875 to register your child (ages six to 11) or youth (ages 12 to 16), or email

3. You may have placed your bets on horses, but do you know what it takes to race one? Harness Racing BC is opening its doors to the public to educate on what happens behind the scenes at the horse barns of Fraser Downs. The day-long event Saturday, Sept. 13 kicks off at 9:30 a.m. and includes barn tours, craft tables, cart rides, shoeing demos as well as a light lunch. People are encouraged to meet the horses and their "drivers." For more information, visit, or call 604-574-5558.
