    If you ate today, thank a farmer.

    by Brigid Kemp, 3 months ago

    I am appreciating the Penticton Farmers Market making great strides in setting up their online version and seeing it in action in the parking lot of the Community Centre. What better way, during this pandemic, to show appreciation for supporting local businesses, especially farmers.

    Spreading Easter cheer (submitted by Hannah H)

    Even though churches were not open, the Good News message of Easter was still alive and well.

    April Easter weekend I put this sign on our front lawn, hoping it brought good News and love to several people passing by our Skaha Park neighbourhood.

    Making Face Masks

    by Linda Middlestead, 3 months ago

    I wanted to do something helpful for my family, friends and community. I started sewing face masks for everyone but did not charge anything for them. I asked for donations instead and was able to donate $300. to the Food Bank and $250. in cash, food and supplies to the SPCA. I'm hoping to continue sewing to help keep everyone safer and to continue with my fund raising.

    My neighbors and I are also banging pots and pans and ringing bells every night at 7:00 to thank our help care and support workers.
