Work Party – Sat Oct 8 – Summit Centre

One Last Cleanup

Dear residents of Anarchist & Sidley Mtn

As autumn progresses and we think about the snow that is soon to fall, we’d like to ask for your assistance one more time.

On Saturday, October 8 from 9:30 AM -11:00 AM; we’d like to have one more clean-up event at the Summit Centre.  We’ll weed whack some grass, blow or rake the needles in into piles and remove them and generally tidy up in anticipation for the winter months ahead. We promise to have you out of there in 90 minutes.

If you can bring rakes, weed trimmers, blowers, wheel barrows etc. that will help a lot.  See you then.

Home Found: Hibiscus Plant

This plant has found a home!

Our Hibiscus has grown too big for our living room.

Would anybody have a place for the giant?

Hibiscus can spend the summer months outside but need a warm place during winter.

It has only one flower at the moment, but it blooms all year!

Thank you

Margrit Johnson

Slideshow: Summer 2016 on Anarchist Mountain

Summer 2016

Well, this summer has been fairly uneventful, which is a good thing, but it’s hard to pick a theme.  Bears maybe?

Thanks to all the talented photographers who contributed.

Yoga and Pilates on the mountain

Hello mountain residents

There may be a few newcomers to the mountain community, so I want to introduce myself and tell you about Yoga and Pilates classes available close to home. Since December 2015, I’ve been teaching two classes each week at the Summit Centre: Gentle Core Yoga Flow on Tuesday mornings at 9:30, and Mat Pilates Thursday mornings at 9:30. Classes are one hour, and the drop-in is $10. The Anarchist Mountain Community Society and Osoyoos Mountain Estates generously allow me to use the Summit Centre for these classes. Every 3 months I donate a percentage of the drop-in fees to the AMCS. The Summit Centre is located adjacent to the Rest Area on the highway, near Peregrine.

These classes suit any level, so don’t be shy. No experience necessary! I’m a certified Yoga instructor as well as a certified Mat Pilates instructor, and would love to meet you if you would like to try it out. If you have any questions feel free to email me directly at suzywilliamson@gmail.com or call me at 778-228-2380

Letter to Ministry of Energy

Dear Neighbours,

As you know our electricity rates here on Anarchist Mtn are both unfair and outrageously high. Nick Marty is an retired energy policy expert, and he is leading the fight to the BC Utilities Commission (BCUC) to push for a more equitable electricity rate for rural customers like us. Nick correctly points out in the letter below that the Ministry of Energy has been misleading citizens with their comments about the rate structure. I applaud Nick for taking the Assistant Deputy Minster to task for his misleading and incorrect statements about the situation.

Many of us on the Mountain have submitted Letters of Comment to the BCUC and will monitor their review response. As next spring is election time in BC, we should all raise our vices loudly about these unfair and discriminatory electricity rates.

Bravo Nick…keep up the pressure.

Knitting Circle

With the addition of new residents in the last couple of years, we thought we’d provide information on the knitting group and what is happening on the mountain on Wednesday afternoons during the fall, winter and spring months.

About 7 years ago, two neighbours, Sue Terada and Margrit Johnson got together to knit and socialize.  Now there is a larger group from the mountain and town that meet on Wednesdays.  The squares we knit are sewn together into blankets which are donated to the Safe House operated by Desert Sun Counseling, and to some other homes and agencies. Besides making blankets we also knit scarves, slippers and dish cloths. Some knit hats for new born babies, which are donated to the maternity ward at the Penticton Hospital.  For more information on Desert Sun, their website is www.desertsuncounselling.ca

There are skilled craftspeople in the group who kindly and patiently help basic knitters improve their ability, even if someone has not done any knitting before, or not touched a pair of needles since Brownies or knitting that basic scarf in high school.  A fine example of where neighbours become friends, this group has been particularly helpful to newcomers to the area. If anyone would like more information on the group, feel free to contact anyone of us or e-mail margrit@vip.net , 250 495 0612

While most knitters supply their own yarn, we are putting out a request to the community.  If you have or know of a supply of yarn you would like to donate, it would be very much appreciated.

New participants are always welcome to join us on Wednesdays and the first meeting day this fall is September 21st.
