Penny Lane to mark 10 years

Fund-raising retail store contributes to youth programs.

For the past decade, Penny Lane Bargain Outlet has been contributing money to youth-related initiatives in the South Okanagan.

The store has invested more than $1.7 million to youth since it started in 2002.

Contributions by Penny Lane have allowed the Okanagan-Skaha School District to provide a full-time youth and family worker for Summerland Secondary School for the past four years.

A second worker will be added to the school beginning in September.

On Saturday, July 7, the store will celebrate its 10th anniversary at the clothing store at 13207 Victoria Rd. N., beginning at 9:30 a.m.

The street in front of the store will be closed for a prize drop.

Lunch, served by the Summerland Royalty, will be between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

At the furniture store at 10109 Main St., there will be a parking lot sale behind the building from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
