May 8, 2016 marks the 71st anniversary of VE-Day (Victory in Europe Day). While busy in Ottawa, I still wanted to thank the Royal Canadian Legion #22 (Summerland Legion) for their hard work in commemorating the day. I sent my Constituency Assistant, Dayne, to present a certificate of appreciation and commemoration to the Summerland Legion on my behalf.
Dayne participated in the Legion's ceremony at the Summerland Canyon View Cemetery, and then delivered the certificate to Legion President, Mike Brazeau, at the Kettle Valley Railway before everyone rode the train as a tribute to the Okanagan soldiers that took the very same rail route when they left home for the war.
Wow! The Okanagan Rotary Clubs and The Central Okanagan Community Food Bank collected over 12,000 pounds of food in one day!

Rotary At Work Day was April 30, 2016, and to celebrate the day, and thank the Rotarians for their work, I asked my Constituency Assistant, Dayne, to deliver a certificate thanking the group for their efforts.

Happy Asian Heritage Month!
Asian Heritage Okanagan has organized a month's long calendar of events to celebrate Asian Heritage. The opening gala took place April 30th, and so I was more than happy to send my Constituency Assistant, Dayne, to deliver a certificate of celebration on my behalf.
