Program support appreciated

I would like to thank the community of Summerland for their continued support of the Summerland Blossom Pageant and Royalty Program.

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the 2013 Summerland Royalty, I would like to sincerely thank the community of Summerland for their continued support of the Summerland Blossom Pageant and Royalty Program.

The Summerland Royalty have just returned from a trip to our Sister City, Toyokoro Japan. This was truly an experience of a life time for these youth ambassadors to have the opportunity to represent our community in Toyokoro at city hall, schools, daycares, dinners, functions and in family homes.

Maddy, Nicole, Tori and Natasha, I was extremely proud to witness how well you portrayed Summerland and Canada during your trip.

The relationships that you have developed with Japanese dignitaries, friends and your home stay families should never be forgotten. Through relationships like these we will all learn respect and tolerance of other countries and respect our differences.

Thank you to Summerland’s Sister City Committee for making these relationships possible. Thank you to the citizens of Summerland for supporting our fundraising efforts by buying our apple pies, perogies, hot dogs, fajitas and supporting our bottle drives in order to make this trip a reality for the Summerland Royalty Youth Ambassadors. We could not have done this without all of your support!
