Members of the Keremeos Community Day Living Program were pleased to receive  a number of items donated to them last week in order to help them in their efforts to give back to the community.

Village Chief Administrative Officer Laurie Taylor personally provided the group with a garden wagon and a few accessories to enable them to clean the village’s park areas as part of their daily routine from Monday to Friday.

“They wanted to do  something to pay back the community for all the assistance the community has given them,” explained Public Works Foreman Jordy Bosscha, who made the presentation on behalf of village staff.

The group, who also assist the elderly to walk their pets, will take the cart with them and concentrate on areas like the cenotaph and the pet water fountain. The group, who also recently purchased a hot dog vending cart, will be set up in Memorial Park on October 8 and 16. They also plan to locate it at the Royal Canadian Legion for meat draws and other meetings.
