Marilyn Topham

Donation to benefit program

A donation from the Summerland Quest Society will help fund a new speech program.

Marilyn Topham, right, president of the Summerland Quest Society for Hearing Enhancement presents Heather Whitney, a speech-language pathologist with Interior Health with a cheque for their new program, You Make a Difference.

The nine-session parent education program promotes speech therapy for children.

This program will be offered for the first time in Summerland this spring. The Quest Society is a non-profit women’s service society for all ages, occupations and nationalities.

Their mandate is to improve the lives of the deaf, hard of hearing and speech impaired, and assist women and children in need.

If you would like to join this fun group of women  and help raise funds for local causes or know a group or individual who might like to apply for financial assistance, check out their website at or email
