Grannies going strong
The South Okanagan Grandmothers for Africa had a successful autumn of fundraising thanks to the generosity and support of many businesses, organizations and individuals. Big thanks go out to the Barking Parrot (Lakeside Resort), Dallas and staff, Gary Kehoe, Penticton United Church, Theo’s Restaurant and Nikos, Cherry Lane shopping centre, Penticton Western News and EZ Rock Radio. Through your generosity we have been able to send many thousands of dollars to grandmothers and grandchildren in Africa. We wish all of our supporters the happiest of new years.
Upcoming events include a day of Bridge on Jan. 25 (call Lynn at 778-476-0609 to register or for information) and our pub night, now known as Burger and a Beverage in the Ballroom, on May 10. We also welcome new members to our monthly meetings. For more information call Rita at 250-493-0076.
