Show shores up support

Christmas craft show on the SS Sicamous raises 1,250 pounds of food for the Food Bank

The Christmas Arts and Crafts Show on board the SS Sicamous was an outstanding success. We collected 1,250 pounds of food for the Food Bank, welcomed more than 1,600 people over the four days and had a truly great start to what we intend to be a Penticton Christmas tradition.

Our thanks go out to all the talented artists, artisans and crafters who took part, to organizer Denis Chaykowski, our tireless manager Don Wright and his staff and to everyone who came on board to bring their food donations and browse the unique, original and creative crafts offered.

Penticton has once again proven itself to be a warm and generous community, truly demonstrating the real spirit of Christmas.

We also appreciate the steadfast support this community has shown for our work preserving the historic ships in our collection and presenting this essential part of Okanagan history.
