Pioneer Tea will recognize service

The Summerland Rotary Club’s annual pioneer tea on Saturday will recognize those who have given to the community.

The Summerland Rotary Club’s annual pioneer tea on Saturday will recognize those who have given to the community.

The tea has been an annual spring event since 2003. It was created to recognize long-time Summerlanders who have lived here at least 50 years.

This year, the tea is changing its focus slightly as it honours those from the community who have contributed much over the years, no matter where they have lived.

“Rotary is all about serving,” said George Sutton of the Rotary Club. “That’s why we’re doing it — to honour those who have served in our community and those who have served in other communities.”

In addition, the oldest man and the oldest woman at the event will be recognized.

Sutton said organizers have personally called long-time Summerlanders to invite them to the event. He added that for those who attend, it is an opportunity to meet with friends and reminisce.

The tea will be held on Saturday, April 20 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion on Rosedale Avenue.
