Whose volunteer work has made our community (Spillimacheen to Canal Flats) a better place to live, learn, work or play, Whose exemplary civic engagement and dedication to others has had a profoundly positive impact on our quality of life, Whose selflessness embodies the spirit of the Columbia Valley through their contributions to community projects. Thank you to all the sponsors, volunteers and participants for making this fund raiser such a big success.
Our numbers were down this year, probably due to the smoke and stories about road closures but those who participated had fun!
On Saturday, June 25 the three Rotary clubs of the Columbia Valley (Golden, Radium Hot Springs and Invermere) and a number of Rotary dignitaries including incoming District Governor Kees van der Pol came together to learn more about each other, Rotary International and to vision joint projects for the future.
It was a wonderful day held at the Radium Golf Course.
Chat with local wildlife experts, learn how to keep bears wild and stay safe in bear country with hands-on bear spray lessons. A chance to celebrate last day of school, and also an opportunity for our Board of Directors to meet our members and volunteers.
Please bring something for the table to share (if you can), plus …
Learn to identify common edible and medicinal plants, where to find them, how to collect and use them, and about their current and historical cultural uses.
Drop by the Open Gate Garden on Thursday May 31st between pm and pm to help Brooke weed out some beds.
This will create open space for the next work bee – planting! Kids “Bee” Creative with Wildsight Invermere as we join forces with Tegart Honey for a child-centered workshop all about bees.
