If we amalgamate the concept of healthy living and sport in our community, we could sell what we already are known for our fertile growing season and hopefully healthy lifestyles.

I have been on a fixed income for a long time, but in that time I have owned homes and volunteered for projects I believe in like the Healthy Harvest box.  In high school, I volunteered as a coach here in Penticton for children’s’ soccer. I was an ESL instructor for a group from Osaka, Japan and at that time they wanted to know about modern skating.

Again, everything has to be thought bigger than just my neighbourhood terms, if people remember the power bar was invented in Penticton in the early 1980s.
