Bear activity in area

Just a heads up. We are in Bullmoose Court and had an early morning (3 am) bear visit. He/she got the BBQ and sent it down the hill after licking out the tray. Our mistake. But the more disturbing thing was she clawed through two layers of heavy plastic on the greenhouse. This is a first (three years, no issue) and there is absolutely nothing in there to attract her, as is evident by the fact that she only made a hole big enough to get her nose into. She is too curious.

Community Cleanup Big Success AGAIN!

On Saturday, we asked residents to come out and help tidy up the grounds of the Summit Centre for 90 minutes. AS usual, we were blown away by the wonde3rful community spirit with about 20 folks showing up with wheelbarrows, rakes, weed whackers, rakes and most importantly with their smiles and good natured laughter.  What a wonderful sight to see our community digging in and getting our little community hall all tidy and ready for the months ahead.   We had a few newcomers join in…and I apologize if I didn’t get your names or didn’t get them recorded properly.   I was having too much fun whacking weeds!

REMINDER: Canada Day Float Meeting Tues May 15 at 7:00 PM

                                           NEIGHBOURHOOD SMALL GRANT AWARD

Hello Neighbours

Further to the February 27, 2018 post on our community website, we applied for a grant offered through the South Okanagan Similkameen Community Foundation. Criteria included connecting and engaging neighbourhood residents. The application was for a float in Osoyoos’ Canada Day parade July 1, 2018.

We have just been notified that our application for $500 was approved; so we now have an opportunity to create a float and have some fun to show the spirit of the mountain in town.

There are many ways that residents can be involved at various times over the next while, such as developing a theme, helping with set creation, ordering signs/ banners, decorating, building skills, loan of appropriate equipment (flat bed trailer, truck to pull the float), general assistance, costume ideas, or participating in the parade. The parade is always fun.

We invite to you, or your spouse or a friend, to participate in any part of this community activity either before and/or during the event. We want to get together and have a chat about how we make this idea come to life.

Please join us at the Summit Centre on Tues May 15 at 7:00 PM for a 45 minute meeting. If you are not available at that time yet would like to share comments, please contact one of the following:

Wildfire Community Preparedness Day – 2018 Huge Success

We had another successful event on May 5th supported by 45 of our community members. The grounds around the fire hall were cleaned up and burned to support FireSmart practices and help maintain our recognition of being a FireSmart Community. Demonstration activities consisted of chainsaw maintenance, barricade gel application, yard maintenance rental equipment and home water sprinkler demonstrations.

Thanks to all who participated and provided demonstrations.  Thanks also to the AMFD, AMCS and the FireSmart Committee for their continued support.

Further information on FireSmart can be found on the FireSmart website:
