Conveniently located on Highway 97 North, a stone's throw from Sexsmith Road, every Saturday for 10 years they've been rolling out all makes and models of cars, trucks, vans, trailers, motorcycles, and pretty much anything motorized, all going to the highest bidder. "We have a little bit of everything," said Auction World owner Abe Kroeker. "And you are saving thousands and thousands of dollars."For those who may never have bid on anything before, the friendly staff at Auction World is there to help with the whole process, making it a positive experience.

While the auctions start at 11 a.m. every Saturday, the spacious Auction World facility is open six days per week with late-night viewing Friday to preview vehicles. Buyers are even welcome to bring their own mechanic to make sure they know what they're bidding on.

"You're allowed to start all the vehicles and check their mechanical condition," said Abe. "We make it really easy if you want to have a vehicle inspected as well," he added. While they do a lot of business with fleet operators and other businesses, plenty of people bring their vehicles into the auction because Auction World removes all the hassle of selling them, and the time and aggravation involved.

Abe pointed out they sell more than just simple transportation and work vehicles. "On average, we run about 200 vehicles every Saturday," he said. "We recently sold a DeLorean, like the car featured in Back To The Future and we auctioned off singer Cindy Lauper's boat last year (a 46-foot ocean-going Scarab). We also get bulldozers, dumptrucks, everything from golf carts to heavy equipment. If it's a vehicle, we can sell it. "A family-run business, Abe and his wife Gail have operated Auction World for the past 10 years, employing a staff of 30, and over that time, they've seen plenty of satisfied customers and plenty of great deals cross the auction floor. "We do a complete history on the vehicles and provide full disclosure," Abe said. With ICBC conveniently located on site, when you purchase a vehicle, you can put your plates on and drive away or put down a deposit and come back Monday to pay in full.
Auction World also believes there's more to the business than just selling vehicles to the highest bidder. As Abe pointed out, they also actively give back to the community through various charity fundraisers for groups such as the SPCA, Brain Trust Canada, the BC Children's Hospital Foundation, Canadian Cancer Society, and wildlife conservation programs.
Kelowna Auction World also offers buys peace of mind with their 30 day arrangement, where, if you're not satisfied with your purchase for any reason, you can bring it back and they'll re-sell it for you and waive the seller fee. Best of all, it costs nothing to register for the auctions, and there's no obligation to purchase. But if you're interested in a particular vehicle, it's also good to know that as Abe says, "It's an informed auction, rather than a rushed auction." The bottom line is Auction World is a fun and energetic place to experience buying your next vehicle while saving thousands of dollars. Ask Abe Kroeker who his customers are and his answer's simple. "Anyone who likes to save money."

Coho Conservation on Vancouver Island

Mack and Charlotte My wife and I took an afternoon stroll through the Millard Creek Conservation Area on the south end of Courtenay, B.C. this Easter weekend, April 18, 2014, on Vancouver Island. We walked along the estuary and had a snack and on our way back through the forest we discovered that it was time to count salmon on Millard Creek.

"Our Programs are intended to compliment one another and provide a dynamic framework that will help us achieve our goals and realize our Mission Statement. Our success depends on a committed board, and volunteer base; along with support from our funders, a willing local government and a caring public."

"We found 30 (coho) smolt today," said one volunteer who collected fish from the weir over the course of the past week, "and one cutthroat." The fish are travelling out to sea to begin their adult life. On their way they are briefly interrupted to be counted and tagged.

"We are residents, stakeholders, concerned citizens, volunteers, families, citizen scientists, naturalists and educators who share a respect and concern for the biologically diverse and threatened Millard-Piercy Watershed." The watershed is surrounded by housing and commercial development.

"The Stewards first came together in 1994 as the “Dippers,” a group of residents concerned about the health of local streams. In 1998, the “Millard-Piercy Watershed Stewards” incorporated as a non-profit society. Over the years we have worked to protect and enhance the Watershed, and have built credibility amongst all sectors of the community. Collectively our volunteers donate 2300 hours per year; a contribution worth $34,000!" [SOURCE:]
