The family of the 11-year-old Bow Islander who died in a farming accident on Aug. 14 has set up a scholarship fund in his honour.
In lieu of flowers, the family established the “Kale Porteous Citizenship Scholarship Fund,” to which donations go through Senator Gershaw School.
A celebration of Kale’s life was held at the Cypress Centre on Aug. 19 with life celebrant Gerry Getz officiating.
