Rotary Club of Kelowna Sunrise Vice President Huck Parfeniuk, along with club member Don Martin, presented the Sunvalley Orchards District of Girl Guides of Canada with a donation of $800 on January 26th which will fund new camping equipment for their organization.  Representatives Christy Phillips and Katey Kyle accepted the cheque on behalf of the unit.
The club is very appreciative of the 69 Girl Guides who volunteered over 200 hours at the KidZone during the 2017 Interior Savings Sunrise Rotary Ribfest held in September. It is anticipated that the Girl Guides will be back volunteering at the 2018 Ribfest to be held from August 24-26th.
Note  During the course of the club’s meeting on January 26th, President Andy Griffin shared that the club had agreed to donate $500 to the Lake Country Food Bank for the purchase of a pallet jack.
