A weekend has just passed and I wanted to take this opportunity to say that we live in one of the most wonderful places in the world.
On Saturday morning, I attended the fourth annual free pancake breakfast at Summerland Sweets.
Never having attended previously, I was amazed how fortunate we are to have such a business in Summerland.
The owners and staff made us all feel so welcome and the opportunity to meet up with friends and neighbours made me feel so much a part of this community.
The breakfast was great and I wish to thank the Filek and Beulah families for their generosity.
On Sunday morning after church, I stopped downtown and saw the Sunday market in full swing. What a great idea!
Lots of people were out enjoying themselves and meeting again with friends and neighbours.
Vendors were selling their wares on the street and several storefronts were participating as well.
This is a welcome addition to Summerland and I look forward to its success throughout the summer.
I have been a resident of Summerland for over 40 years and throughout that time have never regretted our move from the East Coast.
Summerland is a special place with generous and friendly people and we should be proud of what we have.
