Our Story What We Do

We raise funds by providing a community service which is cooking pancakes, sausages, coffee and juice for all the local events in Summerland.  During the summer months we are quite busy with this.  We also provide breakfast at the Kettle Valley Railway for their Easter train.

We provide help to seniors that are going into care or already in care, move their extra household goods that are no longer required.  We sell these goods at the Flea Markets we hold during spring and summer.

Our funds are raised by these activities so we can support the local programs and whenever we have a request for funds for a special project.
