Peachland Ambassadors

From Christmas Light Up, to Canada Day, Peachland Elementary’s annual school carnival, to their own event, the St. Patrick’s Doggy walk, you’ll find the Peachland Ambassadors, wearing their trademark sashes and smiles, along with their eagerness to help.

Name the community event, and it’s very likely you’ll find a Peachland Ambassador!

The Ambassadors – headed up by the Sarsons family – Linda, Leanne and Ernie, have been a Peachland tradition for decades. This is the ninth year matriarch Linda has been at the helm, and this year, there are seven candidates and two junior ambassadors. This year is different, of course. For the first time in their 73-year history, their September pageant has been cancelled and they’re putting the program on hold until January, 2021.

More info: Anyone from the age of five and up can be part of the Ambassador program. Little Buddies go up to age nine, then there’s the junior ambassadors, and then by the time they’re 14 or so, the kids can become an ambassador. They are sponsored by a local business or service group, and must illustrate their poise, public speaking ability, etiquette and community involvement. The kids are coached along the way, while learning more about Peachland’s history and promoting our town to other communities with Ambassador programs.
