Can't stay on board

Many thanks to members of the Save Skaha and Protect Penticton Parks Society for being there to "save" and "protect" Skaha and all Penticton's parks.

Although it has been and still remains my desire that our public parklands be "saved and protected," I am sorry to say that I cannot continue on the board of directors. But I hope that you will continue to be there and to participate.

Our public parks are very desirable places and are still very much "at risk."

Penticton still needs an advocacy group such as this has been – a presence and a voice to keep our park spaces in the public hands; protected, open, green, unencumbered, free to be accessed and enjoyed by all. A voice to restrict the putting of concrete, pavement and corporate structures and activities on public parkland that prevent these rights and privileges.

Therefore I hope members realize their importance in keeping the society operating, and are are aware and committed to the purpose for which the society was begun.

I hope at least five to seven dedicated people will set their names forward to be directors and be prepared for the upcoming annual general meeting, Dec.16 at 7 p.m.

I would love to hear from you. You can contact me at [email protected].
