Christie Rose at the Almighty Summit Estate: Thursday, July 19th

‘Tis a last minute impromptu event at the Almighty Summit Estate.  Christie Rose and her band are traveling east on a short tour and asked about a possible place to stay and a gig at the same time.

This coming Thursday night is the when, Almighty Summit Estate is the where, and 7 pm is the fine tuned part of when.

This is going to be a low key show, very intimate and personal. A rare chance to visit with the musicians in the most original atmosphere you are likely to encounter. I am going to suggest a minimum $10 donation. There will be no tickets and no ticket police. If you appreciate the show and where you get to watch it, be generous if you can. It you cannot afford it, come anyway.

Bring your own drinks and snacks if you feel you need it to enjoy the show.

A couple guitars, a banjo, a stand up bass and some great vocals will tickle your ears.

Directions From Osoyoos: Approximately 32 km east on Hwy 3 … you will see the “Summit Elevation” sign on your left, the driveway is on the right with driftwood gate posts and 6130 placard, turn into the driveway and get ready for an experience of driving on a gravel roadway through a field, through another gate, more driftwood, and continue on UP the road to the Almighty Summit Estate! Hope to see you Thursday! It’ll be well worth the trip!

Suspicious Vehicle in area

I saw a older white 2 door Chevy truck with blue stripes driving slowly up Bull Moose and Cougar.  Young guy.  Checking out driveways.  Something to watch out for.  We have been hit twice so far. So a bit more suspicious of vehicles.

2018 BBQ & Silent Auction – July 14th

REMINDER……… 

Saturday, July 14th – BBQ & Silent Auction

The Anarchist Mountain Fire Dept. and the Anarchist Mountain Community Society announce the tenth annual Mountain Community BBQ and Picnic. The party begins Saturday, July 14th at 4:30 PM and goes until dark. The Silent Auction will happen again this year—with proceeds going to our Fire Dept. Silent Auction viewing starts 4:00 PM.

Last year we had 110 neighbours and friends attend, and everyone had a great old time. Everyone is welcomed again this year, so bring your friends, your guests, your family and let your neighbours know because the more the merrier.

BBQ beef will be served around 5:30 pm, with rancher chef Art Harfman and our Fire Chief Urs Grob at the BBQ controls. This will be a pot-luck dinner, so bring a dish to share (with serving utensils). That will be appreciated.

For more info contact:

John Nett (250) 498-1880 grams51@hotmail.com

 

Silent Auction – Fundraiser in Support of Fire Dept.

This year’s Silent Auction will once again be held at the BBQ, with viewing and bidding commencing at 4:00pm and ending around 6:30 or 7pm, when the winners of the bids are announced.

Similar to last year, the Silent Auction organizers have narrowed in on the items that draw the most bidding interest, thereby reducing the number of items and providing more socializing time for people attending the BBQ. The items are donated by local business who provide products, or gift cards for their items, services or baskets of their products.

Please bring Cash or Cheques only as we are NOT set up to accept credit card or debit.

In the past 5 years your community has been able to donate about $23,000 to our Fire Department, through the Silent Auction fundraising. These funds have purchased essential gear and equipment used by the Dept. to improve the effectiveness of their protection services for our community. Thanks for your support.

 

Date : Sat. July 14th

Time : 4:00 PM – Silent Auction viewing begins; party ends whenever

Where: Summit Centre – Hwy # 3 / Peregrine Rd, adjacent Hwy # 3 Rest Stop

Parking: In parking lot BEHIND the Summit Centre, off Peregrine Rd.

Bring : One pot luck dish of a salad, pickles, dessert, or a main. Your own plates & cutlery if you want (paper supplied)

Donation: $10 / adult person

– BBQ’ed beef / water and soft drinks free

– BYOB , other drinks

Anarchist Mountain Community – Canada Day Parade 2018

ANARCHIST MOUNTAIN COMMUNITY

PARTICIPATION IN CANADA DAY PARADE 2018

Well we pulled it off in grand style and had lots of fun and much laughter. We were awarded and recognized for “Best Community Organization Parade Entry 2018”. This was an achievement as there were only four categories in which ribbons were awarded. Not bad for a first effort! We celebrated our success at a Float After Party where AMCS Board Member Alex Giovannelli thanked the Float Committee and all participants for their drive, determination and ingenuity.

Our theme “Life on the Mountain” was meant to showcase and encourage folks to learn more about who we are. Community residents from Grizzly, Whitetail, Bullmoose, Sasquatch, Mule Deer, Eagle Point, Caribou and Sidley were involved in the planning, decorating and/or participated in the Canada Day Parade itself. The AMFD loaned us the
Tender vehicle and with the money provided by the Community Foundation South Okanagan Similkameen Neighbourhood Small Grant program, the community purchased three quality banners which can be used at many community events in the future. Our outfits included a bird watcher, a photographer, a wildflower lady, a cyclist, a baby owl
and her family, a moose and a Sasquatch. We handed out hard candies from the Candy Store which was a big hit with the children. We encourage you to come out and join in the fun next year, even if you’re not available Canada Day, it’s a great way of connecting with more people on the mountain and getting to know your neighbours.
