Good morning! It’s a volunteer appreciation breakfast..

It’s an annual event – with a drive-thru twist! District of Peachland staff, Mayor Cindy Fortin and Councillors Terry Condon, Keith Fielding and Patrick Van Minsel were at the community centre this morning, handing out free breakfasts to our town’s volunteers!

Ben Stringer (far left), coordinates all the rec programs at the District. He was at the community centre at 5 a.m. Friday to start setting up for the Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast. Breakfast wraps and muffins from Bliss were packaged in a District of Peachland reusable bag, with a couple of chocolates, some fruit and a juice box. There were 100 bags in all! From 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., volunteers were invited to drive-thru the community centre parking lot for some VIP breakfast service.

 

It was still early when I stopped by around 7:30, but a couple cars made their way through the friendly drive-thru. Had a nice chat with a few people and it was insisted that I leave with a bag, too (as a Fall Fair and Folk School volunteer). Thanks!

It’s a good morning here in Peachland.
