A proposed multi-use trail along Okanagan Lake is a little closer to becoming a reality now that the Summerland Rotary Club has become involved with the project. At the municipal council meeting on Feb. 12, council voted to endorse the Rotary Club to apply for any available grants for the proposed design and construction of a multi-use trail between Lowertown and Trout Creek. Don Gemmell, long a proponent of the trail, said Rotary’s involvement is good news for the project. “The people of Summerland are blessed to have an energetic and visionary community building organization that is our local Rotary Club,” he said. “I am so happy to see our hard working town council backing Rotary on this project.” Members of council said the Rotary involvement will help to make the path a reality. “We’re thrilled Rotary is picking up this project,” said Mayor Janice Perrino. Coun. Peter Waterman said the trail is needed between Lowertown and Trout Creek. At present, trail users have had to go onto Highway 97 to go between the lakefront area and Trout Creek. “It will be a good addition to our community,” he said. The resolution allows the Summerland Rotary Club to apply for grants as they become available. The first grant is for around $30,000. Gemmell said the support for the trail has been increasing. “The momentum is building for Summerland,” he said. “People are getting excited.”

Hearing set for industrial area by John Arendt

Council will hear from the public on a proposed change to the Official Community Plan and zoning for the Bentley Road Industrial Area. At the municipal council meeting of Feb. 12, council gave first reading to a bylaw amending the

community plan and zoning for the area. A public hearing on the changes will be held on Feb. 25. Municipal planner Ian McIntosh said the process to get the industrial area zoning and designation changed has been lengthy. “It’s taken about 14

years to get here,” he said. Discussions first began in 1995. In 1998, the land was conditionally approved for exclusion from the Agricultural Land Reserve, but this exclusion was not acted on until 2010. A block exclusion of land from the Agricul-

tural Land Reserve came before council in 2011 and was approved. In February, 2012, the municipality conducted a planning study which included interviews with residents of the area, a traffic study, a drainage study and open houses. If the community plan

and zoning changes are approved, the change must then go to the Agricultural Land Commission for approval. Coun. Lloyd Christopherson said McIntosh and Julie McGuire have worked hard on the planning for the industrial area. See BYLAW Page 3

Everything you say can be used against you We have all heard that phrase used in the myriad of TV Cop shows that continue to grace our televisions. Well folks, it has never been more true in these technologically advanced times. Everything you write on Twitter or on your Facebook page can and will be used against you in family court proceedings, should you be unfortunate enough to be in that situation. In fact, BBM's, emails, texts, voicemail, chats and all other forms of electronic communication, provided it was intended for the public, can be used as evidence. It can be devastating to your legal position. Family Lawyers are scrambling to advise their clients to be very cautious about what they post and what they say on these sites. Something meant to be funny or silly does not always look that way in the harsh light of a Family Law proceeding. Very serious implications can be drawn from seemingly innocuous postings. The opposing party in your legal proceedings can get a very detailed account of your actions by reading the things you put online. The wise route is to make sure what is said is not harmful and to restrict access to those sites.

Recipients include programs for human and social services, arts and culture and environment. “These gaming grants allow local organizations to provide social services that directly benefit our community. I am pleased to see that the government cares for the future of these organizations and the people that rely on them,” said Penticton MLA Bill Barisoff. Over the past fiscal year, the province distributed a total of $135 million in grants to more than 5,300 community groups.

Consulting firm receives oil sands contract A Summerland business has received a contract from Environment Canada to be part of an environmental monitoring study for the Alberta oil sands. Cordillera Consulting, which has been operating in Summerland for 15 years, received the

contract to be part of a “World Class Environmental Monitoring Study.” The monitoring contract is worth more than $250,000 over three years and adds to the roster of Cordillera’s monitoring projects. Cordillera Consulting is a

Bonaldi family raises concerns about senior care

While Summerland Seniors’ Village marked its seventh anniversary on Friday, members of Alfredo Bonaldi’s family were outside, handing out information and urging the public to voice concerns about the centre. Bonaldi, 91, a resident in one of the facility’s independent living units, was near death in November after a suspected case of food poisoning. He had been absent from meals for three days. He died in hospital on Dec. 7. In January, the Interior Health Authority appointed an administrator to oversee residential care at the private facility. However, members of Bonaldi’s family remain concerned about private

senior care facilities. “These facilities have to be held accountable for their actions,” stated an information sheet handed out by family members. Patricia McCoy, one of Bonaldi’s daughters, said the family wants clear information on the differences between independent living units and assisted living at the facility. They also believe reports should be submitted each month, detailing all incidents and accidents at care facilities. The family members would also like MLA Bill Barisoff to assist them in addressing their concerns. “We’re looking for our politicians to step up to the plate and help us out,” said Bonaldi’s daughter Edi Inglis.

Coun. Peter Waterman said the changes include some strict regulations. “I wonder if we’ve gone a little bit far with some of the stringencies,” he said.

McIntosh said the guidelines came about because the neighbours wanted an industrial park which looked better than some of the industrial developments already in

place. When the bylaw comes to council for approval, the Official Community Plan amendment will require support of a majority of all council members.

Providing a trail Many will agree that a proposed multi-use trail along Okanagan Lake would be an asset to the community, but getting such a trail in place remains a huge and expensive project. The Summerland Rotary Club has now become involved with the trail project and municipal council has voted to endorse the Rotary Club to apply for any available grants for the work. The trail, along Okanagan Lake, would connect Lowertown and Trout Creek. In summer, there are many tourists who would use this route and throughout the year, residents would also use it. At present, those wishing to walk or bicycle between the two locations must use Highway 97, which can be busy during the summer months. A multi-use trail would provide a much safer connection. The trail would also serve as a link in a longer series of pedestrian and bicycle routes in the Okanagan. The biggest obstacle to the proposed trail has been the cost. The price tag has been estimated at around $850,000. While grant funding would help to pay some of the costs, grants alone will not pay the entire bill. No matter what funding is available, the trail will come at a significant cost. The costs do not end once the construction has been completed. There will be ongoing expenses in its maintenance and upkeep. This is the case with all trails, parks and other amenities. Rotary’s involvement is an important part in making the trail a reality. The service club has taken on other large community projects in the past. Other service clubs are also responsible for the work which has been done in creating some of the parks and trails in place elsewhere in Summerland. The trail project is needed, but even with the Rotary Club’s support, it remains a huge undertaking.

Summerland Secondary School’s Junior Boys basketball team finished the season with a tournament win in Grand Forks and a four th-place finish in South Zone league play. Throughout the season, the team members showed improvement. The players on the team and the coaching staff deserve congratulations for their hard work this year.

B.C. gas boom is real, all right VICTORIA – Whether Christy Clark’s government survives the May election or not, the natural gas “Prosperity Fund” idea floated in last week’s throne speech is a useful one. B.C. is poised to join Alberta in the upper rank of energy producing jurisdictions, with an expanding network of natural gas collection, refining and process- Tom Fletcher ing into liquid (LNG) for export. Clark’s preelection throne speech proposed a resource fund similar to Alberta’s Heritage Fund that would be reserved for debt reduction and major projects, rather than spent on programs, which tends to happen under the political pressure of four-year election cycles. Opposition politicians and media commentators have dismissed this as a pre-election stunt.  They note that the LNG industry in B.C. doesn’t exist yet, and may never produce the hundreds of billions of dollars projected over the next 30 years.  I returned for a visit to B.C.’s northeast earlier this month, and I can tell you the gas boom is real. My parents homesteaded east of Dawson Creek near the Alberta border in 1962, and I recall when our farm was drilled for gas by Gulf Canada 40 years ago. Many more gas wells have been drilled since then, and country roads have been widened and numbered for industrial traffic. Hydraulic fractur-

ing, already in use when our farm was drilled, has been combined with directional drilling to open up huge new supplies. A farming community called Montney is the latest hot play, yielding not only shale gas but petroleum liquids, which are valuable for diluting heavy oil among other things. B.C. has never seen this kind of international investment interest before. Initial projects have been joined by global players such as British Gas, and

At least B.C. hopes it’s the bottom. Gas royalties passed forest income to the B.C. treasury many years ago, and now as the forest industry struggles to recover, the province faces tumbling revenues from gas. Why would B.C.’s shale gas be seen as a priority for new global investment in LNG? For one thing, we’re a stable democratic country with a mature industry and competent regulation. Secondly, the shipping advantage of the Kitimat and Prince

A farming community called Montney is the latest hot play, yielding not only shale gas but petroleum liquids, which are valuable for diluting heavy oil among other things. Mitsubishi, a key player  in Japan’s replacement of its devastated nuclear power program. Spectra Energy, which operates one of North America’s biggest gas processing plants at Fort Nelson and has another one under construction nearby, has begun work on a third plant near Dawson Creek. Spectra and British Gas have also proposed the latest of several pipelines, to move all this gas to an LNG terminal at Prince Rupert. The Kitimat-Prince Rupert region now has at least five proposed terminals, with investors including Shell, Chevron, ExxonMobil and state players from China and Korea. All this is happening as shale gas is developed across the United States as well. As with oil, Canada is a captive of the U.S. market, and the flood of new gas supply has the North American price at rock bottom.

Rupert ports to the Pacific Rim has finally been recognized internationally, as coal, forest products, grain and container traffic has climbed in recent years. B.C. has another advantage that appears to be increasingly important. The shale gas deposits are deep, under a kilometre or more of solid rock, and most are in remote, sparsely inhabited locations. That adds cost to the pipeline system, but it has a benefit. At the beginning of the year I predicted that the international protest movement that dishonestly targets Alberta oil would soon turn to demonizing natural gas. That pseudo-scientific attack has begun, right here in B.C. I’ll have more on that in a subsequent column. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews. com.


As the temperatures warm and the snow melts, it seems winter is finally coming to an end. H o w e v e r, it is still possible to have heavy snowfall at this time of year and later. Environment Canada’s forecast for this week is calling for some precipitation, including snowfall. The level of caution and attention drivers needed in December and January is just as necessary now. Safe driving throughout the year is important for the safety of everyone on the roads.

Spaces needed for French Immersion

Dear Editor: I am the grandmother of a potential entrant to this year`s French Immersion program.   I am concerned to discover that her chances for entry are based on a lottery system. As a retired educator of over 35 years, I am appalled that the public education

system in our community uses such an undemocratic method to assign places in this program. All three of my adult children were educated in French Immersion programs in Ontario. There is no question that their education in a second language from early years gave them

great advantages in life. Two of them easily acquired a third language at later stages of their education, and all three of these adults use second and third languages in their careers and life.   They did not enter these programs through a lottery system.  They participat-

ed in an educational choice available to everyone.   Surely a goal of a public education system is equality of educational opportunity.   If a full-time Kindergarten education can be offered to all five-year-old children, surely the opportunity for French Immersion at

Grade 6 can be considered of comparable importance. As a former second language teacher, I am astounded to learn that the designated class size for French immersion is 30. I am sure there is research that designates a much lower class size, especially in the entry points of

total instruction in a second language. Common sense would suggest that class sizes should be 22 or 23, similar to the recommended class sizes for Kindergarten. As a taxpayer in Penticton, I would never oppose a tax increase if I knew the money went to improvements in

The Early years

Summerland’s heritage

Photo courtesy of the Summerland Museum

This is Heritage Week in Canada and this year’s focus is on Heritage Homes and Neighbourhoods. In 1905, there were few homes in Summerland and not a lot of neighbourhoods, especially in the Siwash Flats area. That has definitely changed. Why not take some time to notice the heritage homes or sites in your neighbourhood and drop by the museum for more information. After all, we’re all about heritage. Who knows, maybe we’ll be assigning heritage status to your home and neighbourhood someday.

our local educational offerings at the schools in Penticton and Summerland. What better investment do we have than the ones we make for the next generation? I have seen the numbers concerning the choice to hold a lottery. It seems to me that a better solution would be to create more appropriate class sizes, and therefore all the applicants could be accommodated. I understand, also, that there have been some late applicants, and this might help the formation of appropriate class sizes.   I wonder if new children moving into the area and desiring French Immersion at the end of the summer, would simply never be offered the opportunity. That would be double bad luck, since they never even had a chance to enter the lottery.   And we know that lotteries are never an exercise in fairness. I beseech our public officers on the school board to put on their thinking caps, and try to come up with a better solution to meet the needs of the current, and future, cohorts of exiting Grade 5 students who proceed to Middle School. Karen A. Fort Penticton

New Democrat plan remains hidden from the public Dear Editor: Even though the provincial election is just three months away, NDP leader Adrian Dix still refuses to reveal the NDP’s election platform. Why? Is it so empty that he has to hide it from public view for as long as he

possibly can? I think the public deserve to see what sort of plan Adrian Dix and the NDP have for this province. Voters should be able to evaluate the NDP’s platform and weigh it against the platforms, plans and visions of other parties.

Unfortunately, all Mr. Dix has done so far is defend his secrecy around the NDP platform by claiming the B.C. Liberals never revealed their plans this early on when they were in opposition during the 1990s. Well, I almost

bought that argument from Mr. Dix until I checked the facts. Not surprisingly, the facts don’t line up with Mr. Dix’s claim. In 1996, for instance, the B.C. Liberals released their platform three months before the election; and that was

at a time when BC did not have a fixed election date as we do now. And in 2000, the BC Liberals released their platform more than a year before the election. These were documents that voters could read and study, evaluate and

compare. How sad it is, then, that B.C. voters still have absolutely nothing solid from Mr. Dix this close to the election. His platform and plans remain a mystery. You would think that someone such as Mr. Dix, whose fundamental

honesty has been in question since the 1990’s, would be doing everything he could to be open and honest with the public about his plans. Obviously, and sadly, that is clearly not the case. Fred Reemeyer Coquitlam

The Summerland Credit Union will undergo an expansion project beginning in early April. Sandy Berry, vicechair of the Credit Union’s building committee, said the expansion will increase the size of the building from around 930 square metres to around 1,125 square metres. “We needed to do some things to make ourselves more functional,” Berry said. The administration offices will move upstairs while the main level will see some changes to the configuration.

Meiklejohn Architects Inc. of Penticton has been selected as the architect firm for the project. Canyon View Construction of Summerland has been chosen as the construction manager. Berry said the Credit Union worked to give Summerland businesses and Credit Union members the opportunities to bid on the work. The construction will take around nine months to complete. The cost has not yet been finalized. The last renovation at the Credit Union was an expansion in 1999. While the building

will be larger by the time the work is completed, Berry said the exterior footprint will not increase much. The building will still be occupied during the construction, but Berry said efforts will be made to minimize the effects for the staff and customers. “There probably will be some disruptions to our members, but we’re going to make the process as pleasant and troublefree as possible,” he said. He added that the staff members are excited about the changes and the benefits from the expansion project.

Summerland Review Thursday, February 21, 2013









Play examines memories and fashions Ask a woman about a personal triumph or tragedy in her life, and chances are she’ll remember the clothing she was wearing at the time. That’s the basic premise of the South Okanagan Amateur Players’ upcoming production, Love, Loss, and What I Wore. The playful comedy is written by sisters Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron and based on the best-selling picture-book memoir by Ilene Beckerman. The Ephron sisters are noted for their quick-witted romcom films, When Harry Met Sally, Julie and Julia, Sleepless in Seattle and You’ve Got Mail. The play is more about memory and relationships than it is about fashion or shopping for clothes. Clothing is merely a device used to access old emotions and relive life-changing moments, memories that hang like items of clothing in a woman’s closet, just waiting to be tried on again. The result is a funny, poignant, and ultimately uplifting collection of stories, all of them true. Jen Jensen directs a cast of five women (Linda Lobb, Christine Rothwell, Penelope Johnson, Robin Stille and Tracey Granger) who rem-

Play opens in Summerland

inisce their way through a series of monologues, dialogues and rapid fire vignettes. Assuming a variety of characters and voices, the women recall touchstone moments in a woman’s life, told through her clothing: a childhood dress, the embarrassment of fitting a first bra, a prom gown and the beau who went with it, the pain and sexiness of high heeled shoes, finding the right dress in which to marry the one you love, why women adore black and the love-hate relationship

with a purse. Scenes vary from serious to sexy to just plain silly. Sewing this colourful patchwork of scenes together is Gingy (Lobb), a straight-talking senior who uses tonguein-cheek humour to retell her life story through her clothes. On the way, she inspires the other characters to join in with anecdotes of their own, following a roughly chronological format from childhood, through loves and losses, to career and motherhood, and on to the golden years.

The show is especially recommended as a hilarious evening out for moms and daughters, sisters and women’s groups. But while the estrogen level may be high onstage, the show promises to be an eye-opener and a

source of amusement for men. What do women really do in the department store change-room? What is she really thinking when standing in front of the closet for minutes on end? Why do women wear boots year-round? Why is what she wears so important to her anyway?  The show reveals many of women’s secret fears and private joys, using clothing as a metaphor for memory. Women may laugh  with  the characters, while men laugh  at  them, but laughter is guaranteed for both genders. Love, Loss and What I Wore hits the stage on March 1 and 2 at Summerland Centre Stage, March 8 and 9 at the Osoyoos Minitheatre and March 15 and 16 at the Oliver Seniors Centre.

Thursday, February 21, 2013 Summerland Review

Summerland celebrates Heritage Week Heritage Week in British Columbia takes place this year from Feb. 18 to 24. For 27 consecutive years Summerland has used the occasion to choose a heritage building, site and tree. This year the Heritage Advisory Commission has selected the Isaac Blair home as the 2013 heritage building. The Blair house is located at 14612 Garnett Valley Rd., at the southern end of Garnett Valley. Isaac Blair played a prominent role in the early days of Summerland’s development. Isaac Blair was born in 1840 in Truro, Nova Scotia. At the age of 35 he moved to Boston and established the Isaac Blair Construction Company. His company became one of the

Isaac Blair played an important role in Summerland’s history. He served on Summerland’s municipal council from 1914 to 1920.

most prominent construction firms in the New England States. Today, his company is still active in Boston and is now part of the Marr construction firm. Following completion of his Sum-

merland home, Blair retired to Summerland in 1910 at the age of 70. Blair was a municipal councillor in 1914 and from 1915 to 1919 served as Summerland’s reeve (mayor). In 1920 he returned to serve as a municipal councillor.  He never fully recovered from the influenza epidemic and died in 1922. Each year a pen and ink sketch of the chosen heritage building is produced. All of these sketches are displayed at the Summerland Museum. The 2013 heritage site is the dacite columns on the western slope of Giant’s Head Mountain. Dacite columns are similar to basalt columns, with most of the columns with pentagon shaped rock.

The Isaac Blair home, at 14612 Garnett Valley Rd., has been designated as this year’s heritage house in Summerland.

Dacite’s chemical composition is similar to basalt with a higher amount of feldspar, creating a lighter colour rock. These columns were formed when Giant’s Head Mountain began to reerupt. Giant’s Head Mountain is a resurgent volcanic dome similar to Mount St. Helen’s. The volcanic lava (magma) slowly cooled, creating the pentagon shapes. There is no direct roadway to the dacite columns. The columns are just north of the Public Works yard.

The dacite columns can be located if one imagines Lenzi Road continuing directly to the western slopes of Giant’s Head Mountain. The Heritage Commission selected the birch trees at the Atkinson home adjacent to Summerland Sweets as the heritage trees for 2013. The trees were planted by Ted Atkinson in 1924. Atkinson was one of Summerland’s most prominent citizens. He was a research scientist at the Summerland Research Station. He was on muni-

cipal council for 17 years, eight years as reeve. He served on many municipal groups including president of the Chamber of Commerce. He founded Sum-

merland Sweets and the first year of sales was in 1960. In 1954 both Mr. and Mrs. F.E. “Ted” Atkinson were awarded “Citizen of the Year” by the community.

Summerland’s heritage site for 2013 is the dacite columns on the western slope of Giant’s Head Mountain. 11

Courage is fire. Bullying is smoke

13604 Victoria Road (In the Sungate Plaza)




Stand up for others. Stand up for yourself.

13601 Victoria Rd. N. 250-494-7181

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.

7519 Prairie Valley Rd.,


It started in September 2007, when two teens at a Nova Scotia high school stood up for a younger student. David Shepherd and Travis Price, both in Grade 12, heard about a Grade 9 student at their school who had been bullied and threatened for wearing a pink polo shirt on his first day of school. They decided they should do something about it and bought 50 pink shirts and tank tops to wear to school the next day. They also went online to round up support for their anti-bullying cause, which they dubbed a “sea of pink.” It worked. The next day, dozens of students were outfitted with the discount shirts, but even better, hundreds of students showed up wearing their own pink clothes, some from head to toe. The bullies were reportedly never heard from again. This year, Feb. 27 is Pink Shirt Day in B.C. and other parts of Canada, an annual antibullying event that started after the nowfamous 2007 “sea of pink” campaign. The need for awareness and action against bullying remains as strong as ever say those involved in the pink event, including local radio station CKNW, Black Press, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Vancouver, and London Drugs, where people can buy the official pink shirts for 2013. “Awareness of what bullying is and understanding that it hurts is important,” says Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Vancouver president and CEO Carolyn Tuckwell. “It isn’t just a rite of passage. It doesn’t have to happen. And it’s relevant to everyone, whether in school, after school or in the workplace.” According to,

as many as 25 per cent of children in Grades 4 to 6 have been bullied and approximately one in 10 children have bullied others, while a 2004 study published in the Medical Journal of Pediatrics found that about one in seven Canadian children aged 11 to 16 are victims of bullying. It is important to recognize what bullying is, and that it happens in many forms – verbally, socially, physically and online

Pink Shirt Day is Wednesday Feb 27th (cyber bullying), says Tuckwell. “By wearing pink, people show they’re making that commitment, to not let bullying happen,” she says. Tuckwell and others emphasize that the pink shirt is secondary to raising awareness about bullying and getting people involved. B.C. is no stranger to tragedy related to bullying. From Surrey’s 14-year-old Hamed Nastoh, who jumped off the Patullo Bridge and killed himself after leaving a note

behind blaming the constant bullying he endured at school, to Mission’s Dawn-Marie Wesley, 14, who committed suicide by hanging herself after relentless bullying, to Port Coquitlam’s Amanda Todd, 15, who killed herself after posting a video on YouTube talking about her experiences with cyber bullying, there are countless told and untold stories that remain horrific. The provincial government has taken steps to address bullying in recent years, including a Ministry of Education resource brochure for parents in 14 languages that can be found online at Net proceeds benefit the CKNW Orphans Fund in support of the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Coast BC. The Boys and Girls Clubs offer programs that foster self-esteem, social engagement, academic success, inclusion, acceptance, respect for self and others, and connection to community. The CKNW Orphans Fund is committed to enhancing the lives of children with physical, mental and social challenges living in BC communities. The fund includes children who are bullied under the scope of the fund’s work, because these children will need extra support for their development.

Ask Your Dentist...


Is it possible that my upper denture affects how well I can taste and enjoy my food? Mary

Dr. Cindee Melashenko


Yes, for some people it can. Our tongue is actually what we use to taste our food, but when we have a full upper denture we push our food onto the denture instead of the roof of our mouth.  This can change how we “taste” our food and lessen our enjoyment of it.  Some of my patients cannot tolerate a plate over the roof of their mouth, while others adapt very easily and don’t seem to have a problem. Since this is a concern for you, here is one option to consider.   The purpose of the plate on the roof of your mouth is to “seal” the denture in place.  However, I could replace the seal of your denture in a different way---by using dental implants under your denture.   On the upper, we can secure a denture very well using as little as four implants.  We could then convert your full plate into a small denture that just keeps the denture teeth and a little pink so it looks nice and works well.  This will help you to once again enjoy the taste of your food and, as an added bonus, improve the way your dentures chew and stay in place. We’re here to help in any way we can. Feel free to call, stop by, or send us an e-mail message. We are always accepting new patients and I’d be happy to answer your question in the next article (anonymously if desired). Have a great week!

Fundraiser gives swim club a boost The Orca Swim Club hosted its annual Swim-athon event over the weekend, with swimmers trying to complete 200 lengths in less than two hours. With the club membership sitting at close to 100 swimmers, the fundraiser helps to keep costs affordable for Summerland families, and helps to pay for equipment, pool rental and coaching expenses. “Orca’s annual swim-a-thon is an important fundraiser but it is more than that - it’s a showcase of the dedicated and talented swimmers in our vibrant club,” said Orca club president Melissa Berrisford. “The parents watched proudly as all the swimmers

swam with heart and determination to a combined distance of an amazing 148+ kilometres.” The event was divided into two sessions with the first wave of development swimmers, aged five to 10, kicking off the event by swimming as many lengths as they could in 30 minutes. The second session saw the older swimmers, aged nine to 16, trying to complete the 200 length (five kilometre) distance in a two-hour time frame. “This year, there were even more swimmers that reached the 200 length goal, which shows improvement in fitness and technique,” said head coach Delano Ducheck. “It was

inspiring for all of us who were cheering on deck.” Senior swimmer Haley Berrisford, 12, who heads to Victoria in a week for B.C. AAA Provincial Championships, was first out of the water, in 1:17. Over the next 43 minutes more than 20 swimmers completed the five-kilometre distance, including

two sprint finishes by Hannah Wagner, 10 and Taylor Smith, 10, who both completed their 200th length as the bell rang to mark the cut off of the twohour event. “I’ve coached in many different cities across the country, and the support this community gives its athletes is amazing,” Ducheck said.

Her second daughter Susan pre-deceased her in 2001. She was born in Scotland and came to Canada at the age of 4 years with her parents who farmed near Hamiota, Manitoba. She met and married Earl Johnston in 1941 and shortly thereafter moved to Bissett, Manitoba and then to Halifax where they spent the war years. Following the war they moved to Victoria and then to Surrey. They retired to Summerland in 1977 where they were active line and square dancers plus members of the Summerland Yacht Club. Gardening, cooking, carpet bowling and walking were amongst Gladys’s favourite activities in later years. She stayed fit by walking the Peach Orchard Hill until her late 80s and then by doing the lake shore walk through until her 94th year. She enjoyed mowing her own lawns until she was 91. With the help of many people in Summerland Mum’s quality of life was excellent and for this reason we would like to send out a special thank you to Dr. Mack, Dr. Krabbe, Felicity Stahl at Pharmasave, Terry Sedoway at the Royal Bank, the Summerland Taxi Drivers, Dale MacDonald from Parks and Recreation, Craig Whitehouse of Summerland Senior Services, Diana Leitch, Shirley Greenwood, and Allen Beam.
