Did you know that a professional jockey from Hastings Park (in Vancouver) is coming to Salmon Arm? His name is Jeff Burningham, and he has raced over 700 winning horses. Another amazing thing about Jeff is that although he was seriously injured in an accident several years ago, he has worked hard to overcome his injuries in order to keep doing the profession he loves.
If you want to learn about Jeff’s inspiring story, or if you’re interested in learning more about the life of a professional jockey, come to the Salmon Arm library at 10:00am on Tuesday, February 25. All classes or school groups attending will be entered into a draw to win all 4 of Julie White’s books.
