United Way First Friendship Festival

Cranbrook/Kimberley United Way celebrated both the last and upcoming year of fundraising on Saturday, September 22nd in Rotary Park.  The celebration started with the arrival of the Kimberley contingent carrying the United Way flag after their bike and roller blade relay down the North Star Trail to Cranbrook from Kimberley.

Numerous agencies and societies are dependent on United Way to see them through a year of helping to make both communities stronger and healthier.  Donations can be made though most employers or directly through the United Way Office.

Children were able to have their faces painted or partake of the many activities provided by the receiving agencies of United Way.

 United Way Board members (red shirts)and members of receiving agencies receive their cheques , the result of last years fundraising efforts.  From left to right, representatives from the Hospice Society, Donna Brady Fields(United Way), Linda Douglas,(Options for Sexual Health), Pat Chisholm, (Better Babies), Bev Campbell, (United Way Chair), Gord Johnston, (Boys and Girls Club), Dana Osiowy, ( Big Brothers and Sisters), Kelly Klein, (Community Living), Susanne Pederson, (United Way)
