Strong Communities Festival serves up fun

Strong Communities Festival serves up fun

KELOWNA – CUPE Local 338 was proud to sponsor the Second Annual Strong Communities Family Festival in Kelowna on Saturday.  Local president Lee Mossman said, “our members are happy to give back to the community and show that CUPE cares about the places we live, work and play in.”

The event was packed and featured a free family festival with tai chi, a barbeque, popcorn and snow cones.  For the kids there were bouncy castles, face painting, balloon animals and arts and crafts. Every child also received a goody bag!

The local reports that the weather cooperated fully and great fun was had by all. Donations were accepted for the local food banks and a large food donation was given to the Kelowna Gospel Mission as well.  Mossman singled out event volunteers for special thanks in helping make the festival such a great success.
