Danae would like to thank everyone for their support during the bottle drive last month to help get her to the BC Summer Games. The support was tremendous and helped lift her to achieve 3 Gold medals in Wakeboard, Wakesurf and Wakeskate. Plus the Okanagan team won a Bronze for third place overall in BC.
Way to go Danae!!!
Great Advice From the RCMP…
Kelowna RCMP highlighted ways for people to participate in community safety:
The City’s Block Connector program is an excellent volunteer opportunity for Kelowna residents interested in promoting safety in their community.
Secure your belongings. Follow the #9PM Routine (see: BC RCMP - Kelowna Regional RCMP encourages 9PM Routine (rcmp-grc.gc.ca) to ensure your property is safe and secure each night.
Record the serial numbers on your valuables and register your bike through 529 Garage (see: 529 Garage: Register. Respond. Recover. | Join the World's Largest Bicycle Registration Service to Protect Your Bike (project529.com). This way they can be effectively identified if stolen and recovered by police.
Get to know your neighbours. Even better, join the Block Connector Program (see: Block connector program | City of Kelowna). Strong neighbourhoods are safe neighbourhoods.
Say hello to people in your neighbourhood who might be suspicious. It shows them they’re seen. Observe, record and report criminal activity.
Call 9-1-1 if a crime is underway, use the RCMP’s online reporting tool to report crimes that have occurred or call 250-762-3300 to report suspicious or illegal activity. See: Online Crime Reporting | Kelowna RCMP (rcmp-grc.gc.ca)
Contact Bylaw Services at 250-469-8686.
Also to report a crime tip anonymously, please refer to the Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers at www.crimestoppers.net
Member Only Sneak Peaks at the new KF Aerospace Museum
We were lucky and got some sneak peaks of KF Aerospace Centre for Excellence’s new aviation museum and conference centre at Kelowna International Airport.
The museum, depicting an airplane, has two hangars that will showcase heritage aircraft displays, such as those below.
Did You Lose This Cup?
One of Quail Corner’s customers forget a children’s cup at their store on the icecream freezer. If this is yours, they are holding it for you.
