Boys and Girls Clubs to offer preschool and afterschool programs By Joanne Layh Beginning this fall, Peachland parents will be able to take advantage of preschool and afterschool programs at Peachland Elementary School, thanks to the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs. The Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs have been operating a mobile youth program in Peachland since 2009, however this is the first time that they will be providing ser-

vices for young children in Peachland. The preschool program is being offered through a partnership with School District 23, while the afterschool program is in partnership with the District of Peachland. “We are very excited to be able to expand our services in the community of Peachland, which will help us fulfill our mandate to help young people grow healthy, happy and safely from birth to adult-

hood,” Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs marketing coordinator Erin Turvey said. Up until June 2010, both preschool and afterschool programs were operated by the District of Peachland. The new programming offered by the Boys and Girls Clubs will replace that which was previously offered by the district. The afterschool programs are open to children from Kindergarten

to Grade 6. Beginning on Tuesday, September 7, afterschool programming will be available on weekdays from 2:30 to 6 p.m. and will include sports, leisure, creative arts, personal growth and life skill activities. Programs are also available on professional days and during school breaks. The fees are $13.50 per day for 2:30 to 6 p.m. programming or $31.15 per day for the full-day program. The preschool program

is available for three and four-year-olds. Preschool will begin on Monday, September 13 and will be offered between 8:30 and 11 a.m. Classes for three-yearolds will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays for $110 per month, while four-year-olds can attend on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for $160 per month. “Our preschools encourage children to explore, learn, and grow in

a stimulating and fun environment. Preschoolers develop and practice social and language skills, cooperative play, independent thinking and an awareness of self,” Turvey says. Subsidies for both programs are available and there are still spaces available for all programs, Turvey says. For more information or to register call 250.768.3049 or email webber@boysandgirlsclubs.ca.

Highway 97 Task Force August update By Bob Sugden Over $600 million ($300 million more than fi rst budgeted) has been allocated by the provincial government with federal support for a number of Highway 97 projects. These include the Bennett Bridge, the Summerland improvements, highway widening through Kelowna and the Westside interchange. In the last month, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure (MOTI) Shirley Bond was on hand to launch the $41 million project at Westside Road. The Ministry announced that Westbank First Nation (WFN) have signed an agreement to deliver the new interchange, improvements to supporting roads and a new un-

C

derpass at Spland Road through qualified contractors. The project will be turned over to the province once completed. Westbank First Nation Chief Robert Louie shared with me the five years of business planning that went into the project that complies with federal and provincial policy template revisions of 2007. When completed in the fall of 2012 it will establish a village of homes and commerce around the WFN government buildings. He understands what Peachland is endeavouring to do. Thanks to Chief Louie I was able to talk with Minister Bond and

Emphasis was placed on transitioning Highway 97 to a “scenic route” that unites the community rather than becoming the great divide that she experienced on the drive through West Kelowna. She did acknowledge an u nde r s t a nd i ng of the Peachland issues. Just after the MOTI Minister’s visit, the Task Force joined with the 97 Corridor Panel to meet with Stockwell Day MP to encourage action on the proposed Peachland Transportation Terms of Reference. We referenced that it was received by the MOTI Minister in June 2009 as unanimously endorsed by council and subsequently backed at the Peachland Community Meeting of April 21, 2010. Minister Day knew of the terms related to the federal-provincial transportation business case

template and its role in planning. It is the guidebook for Multiple Account Evaluation and Cost Benefit Analysis for highways. This same business plan template worked well for WFN, the Highway 97 Task Force and now Peachland council are seeking comprehensive highway planning from the Connector at Highway 97 south to Greata Ranch. At that meeting Councillor

Condon presented Minister Day, often called President of the Treasury Board, Day, with a copy of the charrette. Peachland is preparing with the Ministry to provide Highway 97 access to the Pincushion-Ponderosa development. It should be noted, there will be four lanes at some points but in the words of MOTI district manager Murray Tekano at the June public meeting, “The lanes

cooler at night, we’re still in very high fire danger so we still have to take extreme caution because the forest is dry, the trees are dry, the duff and woody material is dry and all it will take is a spark, a cigarette butt or somebody being a little bit careless to get a fire going,” Peachland fire chief Grant Topham said. Topham says that Peachland will probably be under high forest fire danger until the end of September. Residents are being asked to exercise extreme caution.

Spawning Kokanee salmon make return to Hardy Falls By Joanne Layh Land-locked salmon are back for fall spawning and that has signaled the reappearance of the Kokanee interpretation programming. The Regional District of the Central Okanagan (RDCO) will be offering fall fish programming at Hardy Falls Regional Park beginning on Saturday, August 28. From now until October 10, Parks Services interpreters will be on hand at Hardy Falls each weekend from noon to 4 p.m. to provide information about this example of nature at work, RDCO communications coordinator Bruce Smith said. The interpreters will explain the Kokanee spawning cycle while offering visitors the chance to witness some of the process in action. The park is located just off Highway 97 at the south end of Peachland. “The highlight of spawning season though is the Kokanee Salmon Festival,� Smith says. The festival takes place on Sunday, September 19 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Mission Creek Regional Park, but there

will also be a mini-festival set up at Hardy Falls Regional Park in Peachland again this year on that same day. The RDCO, in conjunction with the Peachland Sportsmen Association and the folks at Westside Curb Appeal, will be sponsoring the mini-festival with salmon interpreters, crafts, activities, hot dogs and refreshments. Attendees from previous years will remember realtor Roger W. Cyr serving up free hot dogs at the Hardy Falls mini-festival. This year Cyr has passed the torch onto Westside Curb Appeal. Denise and Chris Krahn, renovation specialists for Westside Curb Appeal, jumped at the opportunity to get involved with the Kokanee Salmon Festival and help raise some money for the Peachland Food Bank. The Westside Curb Appeal team will be serving up hot dogs in exchange voluntary non-perishable food donations or a loonie. “We are excited to be a part of this year’s event to support our local parks and the Peachland community. Having two kids of our own, we feel this is a great family out-

ing with on-hand education that only comes around once a year,� Krahn said. Visitors to the park should be aware that during spawning seasons, bears have been frequently sighted as they depend on fish for food. Officials are advising park visitors to travel in a group and make noise to reduce the chance of encountering a bear on the trails. Pets should be kept on a leash along designated trails and out of any streams or creeks, Smith says. In addition to the parks programs, each weekday from September 13 to October 1, interpretive programs will be offered for schools. Teachers can book programs by calling 250.469.6140. The school programs are provided by donation, and Smith says they are an extremely popular field trip with students. This time of year will also see the return of the exhibit ‘Something’s Fishy – Get to know the Kokanee’ at the Environmental Education Centre for the Okanagan (EECO). The exhibit runs at the EECO until October and is open daily.

come taxes mean more net ta ke home pay for you to decide how to best spend your money. W hile on the topic of saving money, competitive bidding on previously announced projects means that there are surplus f unds available to undertake f urther road repairs this season. Specif ically the Summerland Hill portion of Highway 97 will see paving rehabilitation work occurring later on this season. Combined with the completion of the Highway 97 widening north of Summerland, many commuters can now move more safely and eff iciently throughout the South Okanagan. Before I close this week I would like to recognize and congrat ulate the following: Eythan Brown, Brett Fleming, Joshua Greenwood, Dean Grimm, Chris Pond, Mitchell Walton, Maya Venkataraman, Ella Weir, Travis Doroshuk, Angela Klein, Luke McIntosh, Keirsten Mend and Ty Moorman. This group of young athletes rep resented our region in sports such as base ball, lacrosse, soccer, swimming, triathlon and volleyball and ret urned home from the host Township of Langley with medal winning performanc es. Job well done by this great group of Okanagan youth.

While driving down Beach Avenue, I was observing the ongoing construction and noting the overhead utility wires. I thought, ‘here was a golden opportunity, while digging up the road, to bury these ugly wires.’ Why wasn’t this done? Perhaps the cost was prohibitive or maybe it wasn’t considered. Just a thought.

Developers should make haste Dear Editor, Your editorial on the front page of the last issue (August 20) about the redevelopment of downtown Peachland is most interesting. I think that it is great to have a realistic concept for improving the downtown core of Peachland. But what concerns me is what kind of a time frame are we looking at. A majority of us will be dead before we see anything happen or improve. The curling rink had been in the making for over 20 years and now is gone by the wayside, the Primary Schoolhouse has been shut down for approximately 10 years and now has turned into a bat-breeding house. Basically what I’m saying is that when a new idea is born either get it approved or disapproved in a timely fashion and get on with it! Fred Sevenko

Reading rocks at the library There was a lot of fun and prizes to be had at the wind-up of summer reading club on Wednesday, July 28 at the Peachland branch of Okanagan Regional Library. The summer reading club is an annual event held every July for kids aged six to 12. Programs are provided free of charge with weekly book draws, guest speakers and final draws for various contests. It’s always great to see everyone from the young to the young at heart enjoying themselves! The reading part of summer reading club continues until the end of August. Keep filling out your reading logs and bring them in to receive your stickers. We will be having a presentation of medals and certificates to those who completely fill in their reading logs, which will take place on September 7 at 7 p.m. at the library. Please call us at 250.767.9111 for confirmation of attendance so we can have your certificate of completion ready! I would like to thank the following people and groups for their continuing and much appreciated support: Peachland Friends of the Library (our speakers and many prizes would not happen without them), speakers Tanya Lipscombe, Barb Wilson, Colleen O’Hare and Mike Broback, my very terrific co-workers, community librarian Tara Thompson and assistant community librarian Raphael Desjarlais, as well as principal Troy White and the teachers of Peachland Elementary School, who help us promote our program through letters to the parents and school visits. Last but not least, thank you to all the children and parents/caregivers who participate each year to make the program so successful. Have a great summer everyone and see you at the library! Diane Green, assistant community librarian

Final week of Little School House art series By Eric Hall This week marks the last instalment of the Little Schoolhouse art series. From Thursday to Saturday, the Little Schoolhouse art display will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be paintings by three artists - Carol Ewasiuk, Dorothy Hughes and Sharon McPhee. In her younger days, Carol took classes for six years at the Edmonton Museum of Fine Arts. But it wasn’t until she retired in 2005 that she had time to paint. Carol moved from St. Albert to Peachland and joined the Peachland art group in 2009. She paints with oils in a variety of subjects. Dorothy Hughes is a local artist who has enjoyed being part of the local art community. Her style is evolving and her quest for perfection continues. Sharon McPhee is very well known not only as an artist but also as a director of the Little Schoolhouse. Sharon is drawing portraits this year. If you are looking for a

place to visit or just taking a walk along Beach Avenue, be sure to make the turn on 4th Street and Brandon Lane to check out our local artists. The artists love to receive visitors and there is no pressure to buy, although many paintings are for sale. The work of a different artist, Sandra Kessler, will be featured on Sunday. Sandra has an arts degree and experiments with acrylic in a variety of ways. Her work is quite remarkable and a little different to many other artists. Come and check it out; you’ll

be glad you did. Sunday is also the last chance for afternoon tea; volunteers will serve tea or coffee and dessert from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Drinking a cup of tea or coffee out on the patio is one of Peachland’s beautiful experiences; and at only $1 it is a great deal. If the fresh air makes you hungry, there will be dessert available ($4.50 for the full meal deal). All money raised is used for the preservation of the Little Schoolhouse. Make sure you check it out this weekend, or you will have to wait for next year.

The country opry comes to town

Peachland’s “Kinda Kenny” singer, Marty Edwards. Photo Contributed

Just some of the 300 people who attended the event in Heritage Park.

By Richard Smith On Sunday afternoon the singing cowboys and cowgirls from the Westbank Country Opry performed on the mobile stage at the Gazebo on Heritage Park. The entertainers were from Kelowna, Penticton, Westbank, Summerland and Peachland. A very large crowd estimated at 300 brought their own seat-

ing, donations to the food bank, and filled half of Heritage Park to enjoy a great show. Laverne Prozny of Peachland spent a great deal of time and effort to make sure the event was a success. On the May long weekend he also produced the successful Heritage Music Festival on the same portable stage. He was sure this one would be a big success if only the

weather would cooperate. The predicted rain never materialized and the wind died down as the show got underway. Thanks to all the local merchants and restaurants for their support and Okanagan Towing for transport of the stage. Plans are being made to consider bringing the May long weekend festival and the Opry back next summer.

Richard Smith, longtime Peachland resident and local historian, is the featured gallery artist this week. He was influenced by his mother Mary Smith, who was a founding member of the Peachland Art Group that celebrated its 50th anniversary last year. Smith graduated with an Arts degree in Fine Arts and English before taking a more practical Industrial Education degree. He took a year off from university to hitchhike around Europe and North Africa, observing the cultures and art forms in many countries. Smith has been called an installation artist as he sees the other projects he’s tackled as an art form - Centennial events, the creation of the Chinese Laundry Restaurant (the first of its kind anywhere), a 24 karat golden peach made from a real Peachland peach and presented to Lt. Governor

At the Gallery Space Race, acrylic, Richard Smith

Stephen Point, vintage car restorations, a recent country music festival, the Centennial book “Peachland – The First 100 Years” and other unusual artistic creations such as the repainting of the Heritage Park totem pole. A small selection of large, colourful acrylic abstracts and realistic watercolour renderings of Okanagan scenes are currently showing at The Gallery. There are also paintings on display in the Peachland View newspaper office. A fascination with the art of kiln glass slump-

ing has resulted in jewellry and dishes created by this process. Layers of glass are melted together under controlled conditions and the results are wonderful and wonderfully unpredictable. Smith’s membership in the 50-member Peach- Untitled, acrylic, Richard Smith land Art Group is a continuing opportunity to create paintings and share ideas with the rest of the members. He has given workshops in abstract and watercolour painting which harkens back to teaching art in Penticton, Princeton and George Pringle Secondary School.

Tai Chi for wellness By Judy Wyper The Tai Chi For Wellness Club has been meeting in Heritage Square during the summer. We practise the 108 form of Yang style Tai Chi with a smattering of Qigong exercises and Wu Dang components. Tai Chi represents different things to different people. Some are attracted to the martial arts connection, others to the dancelike qualities or improved health and peace of mind. The benefits are determined by a person’s intention, frequency of practice and the efforts devoted to learning. When the Yang family developed this style of Tai Chi, they integrated the idea of bodily movement with the concept of Tao. This represented the highest level of spirituality where body, mind, family, community, country, world and universe become one. Heady stuff. I include this fact to indicate the depth to which this discipline can be taken. Tai Chi is moving meditation through slow deliberate circular movements and deep breathing. It takes about three months to be taught the entire sequence of 108 moves. Time to personally memorize and perform them correctly varies widely.

Yin and yang, stretching and contracting, hard and soft, full and empty: these opposing concepts are felt throughout the form. They demonstrate balance. Mindfully performing the set of movements brings inner peace. There is no past, no present, no future. We are here, in the now, moving one step after the other. Current research shows the benefits of regularly practising Tai Chi. Lowered blood pressure, stronger bones, improved balance and coordination, reduced pain from osteoarthritis, increased joint flexibility, better concentration, enhanced immune system and reduced stress hormones are some of the results. I was attracted to Tai Chi because it looks so graceful and peaceful. I wanted to be able to do this form in the woods where I walk my dogs. I do that, although I have to clear sticks and pinecones to make a flat area. I learned the set and then discovered the philosophy of Taoism, the never-ending process of learning more about Tai Chi, and fi nding that it really is moving meditation and therefore a new experience each time. It has also been an opportunity to meet many new friends.

It is a custom in Tai Chi circles to have tea after the set. Marjory Gove is our tea master, brewing the tea to the right point of perfection. We have a brown betty The Settlers, acrylic, Richard Smith for the herb teapot and a special one bought in Vancouver’s Chinatown for the green tea. It is during this time that we get to know one another and share information to fi rm up our friendships. This is an integral part of our Tai Chi experience. Maureen Heathwood visited England during the summer and will be showing us a series of qigong exercises and movements from her Wu Dang Tai Chi club. Lisa Spalleck will be leading the beginning class and I will be leading the exercises and the continuing class. On September 2 we return to our usual location in the United Church Hall. New members are welcome during the month of September and again in January. Come and try it out. The beginning class meets on Thursdays at 9:30 a.m. The continuing class meets on Tuesdays at 6 p.m. and Thursdays at 10 Spawning Salmon, August 12, 2010, Hardy Falls Regional Park a.m. For more information, phone the Wellness Amateur photographer and Peachland resident, Tania Simpson, started photography in Centre at 250.767.0142 2007 and immediately found a passion for it.

Entertainment will be by the Sadok Ukrainian Dance Ensemble from Kelowna, which promises to be lively and colourful. Doors and the bar open at 5:15 p.m., dinner will begin at 6:15 p.m., with the entertainment scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Call the office now at 250.767.9133 to reserve your ticket. Table reservations can be had for parties of six or more. Remember, membership in the Peachland and District Retirement Society entitles you to participate in all programs; it’s only $15 per calendar year, pro-rated to $10 if a new membership is taken out after September 1. All those 50 years of age and over are welcomed. See the community events page for a list of programs. Parking may be a bit of a hassle over the next weeks; we hope 8th Street won’t be too impossible, but thankfully it won’t last forever.

Shepherd’s Pie

Food For the Soul A community that invites and includes everyone Each year in a threeyear cycle, we concentrate on one of the three Gospels, Matthew, Mark or Luke, with the Gospel of John woven through parts of every year. This year is the year for Luke, who often relates stories of Jesus sitting down to eat with people. We have examples throughout the Gospels of Jesus eating with tax collectors (Matthew and Zaccheus for example), a Leper (Simon) and friends Mary, Martha and Lazarus, and the Disciples. We have other examples of Jesus eating at a wedding feast in Cana and having a meal where an unfortunate

woman brought a jar of very expensive perfume and poured it over Jesus’ feet, then wiped them with her hair. And of course there are the two most well known meals: the Passover meal He ate with His disciples before He was taken into custody and eventually crucified and the meal He ate with anywhere from 3,000 to 5,000 men (plus accompanying women and children), the one where the little boy’s five loaves and two fish become enough to feed the thousands with 12 baskets of food left over. In all of these meals

Jesus makes no preconditions that a person might have to meet before they sit down to share a meal with him. No creeds or doctrines that they needed to believe in, no social status of sufficient elevation, no racial or religious standards to meet. Jesus shared bread and shared God’s love and compassion with all. As Bruce Prewer puts it in his book, Good Tucker in the Desert, “Jesus did not ask whether they were all believers or not. He did not insist on conformity to a set creed. He did not say that only the morally good folk deserved to eat.

He did not exclude the young or those secondclass citizens who were women, nor the tax collectors or other sinners. All were welcome at His table under the open heavens”. This coming Sunday we are reading about Jesus having a Sabbath meal at the home of a leader of the Pharisees, a group of Jews who emphasized the importance of the learning of scriptures and the following of the law of Moses. Jesus often had lively discussions with members of this group around the understanding of God’s Kingdom and

Rev. Elaine Diggle, Minister eachland United Church Churc Peachland how we should live our lives within the ambit of God’s compassion, mercy, justice, peace and steadfast love. Setting so many stories of and by Jesus around a meal of some kind emphasizes for us the importance of sharing table fellowship and the social obligations around “table hospitality” in Jesus’ time. Just as so many relationships and business deals are cemented on the golf course these days, in Jesus’ time meals reinforced and cemented relationships. Each invite to a meal meant reciprocation later on, and so social and community ties were bonded. There were some hosts who would seat people according to social status and woe betide any one who tried to seat themselves above their station in society. In our focus scripture, Luke 14:1, 7-14, Jesus notices the way some guests were jockeying for position and He urges the guests, and by extension us, not to push ourselves forward in a grasping way as true honour is of God. Jesus then goes

on to challenge the host, and by extension us, to include people who will never be able to reciprocate the dinner invite. To broaden our guest lists is to respond to God’s invitation to create an open table, a community that invites and includes everyone. Such a teaching was very difficult for those Jews who were concerned about ‘ritual purity’ – where one ate, with whom one ate and what one ate was part of carrying out one’s religious practices. Jesus calls us to live differently, to live with humility, because we are secure in God’s love and therefore do not need to puff ourselves up or push or promote ourselves. Instead, we are encouraged to set our table (live our lives) remembering that we are not the hosts but God who loves us all is. For the blessings we have received in life are loving gifts from God and blessings are only truly blessings when we share them with others. And as Jesus reminds us blessings are especially to be shared with those who will never be able to reciprocate, that is the way of God’s kingdom, and we are blessed to be able to share in that kingdom here and now. God loves us all, and all are invited to the feast of God’s love for God sets an open table. Thanks be to God.
