Employees at the Lower Similkameen Community Services used to enjoy a small fabric gazebo located on the property behind the services building.

On the evening of June 11 the structure was destroyed in a sudden windstorm.

The gazebo was used by employees on a regular basis, as well as by children involved in kid’s programs at the institution. Residents at nearby Tumbleweed Terrace also found it handy.

The LSCS does not have the budget to replace the structure, and are asking for the public’s assistance in replacing the structure, hopefully with something more permanent.

They are appealing to the community for  cash donations in order to build a more permanent gazebo out of wood.

All cash contributions to the effort will be pooled and a Request for Proposal issued for the building of a new structure. The LSCS can issue tax receipts for donations as well.Anyone willing to assist with a donation to this project should contact the LSCS at 250-499-2352.
