The Okanagan Boys and Girls Club received a cheque for $307 from the Summerland Family Fair, held April 5.

The fair was created by Carrie Mayes of Peanuts and Pumpkins in Summerland and Cathy Pires, photo lab manager of London Drugs in Penticton.

The two plan to make this an annual event for fall and spring fairs. The Okanagan Boys and Girls Club provides a place where children and youths can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships and develop confidence and skills.
