In its continuing endeavour to support the local organizations that truly make a difference for children and youth in the community, the Rotary Club of Kelowna Sunrise presented the Kelowna & District Safety Council with a cheque in the amount of $1,000 on March 11, 2018.  The donation will assist in funding educational opportunities for the students from School District 23.  The educational program will be focused on learning how to be safer as a pedestrian or cyclist on the busy roads and streets within the Central Okanagan. In addition, the funding will help to offset the cost of safety programs for seniors.    Huck Parfeniuk, club vice-president and Andy Griffin, president, presented a cheque to Sheila Campbell, who represented the Kelowna & District Safety Council.

The Kelowna District Safety Council is celebrating its 38th year of providing quality safety education. As a community-based, registered charity, their goal is to provide the means for a safe and satisfying environment for all citizens of the community.  All revenues stay within the community and support safety programs such as our Rider & Driver Training, our Little Traveler’s Safety Village and safety training courses for children.
