Earlier in May, Friends of the Battle River Railway held a cultural evening where we were able to feature the talents in our communities. Attendees enjoyed a musical performance by Ken Eshpeter to celebrate the release of his CD “Ken’s Kids Songs”, as well as the literary contributions of Joe Boudreault with his new novel Debut, “The Dolphin Code.”
