15 Minutes of Fame

Alberta's UBC members are an interesting bunch. Most of us have active family and community lives, and some of us are doing things all the rest of us would like to read about!

Have a look at these members. You'll see what we mean!

And if you know of another Member whose story would make good material for a 15 Minutes of Fame feature story, please let our Webmaster know about it. Include the Members's name, city, phone number and a shoprt description of their story. We'll be happy to look into doing an article for this section.
