Karma Yoga Session

Everyone is invited!

Karma Yoga Session Tuesday December 3

Summit Centre, 9:30 am

On Tuesday, December 3, we are hosting a Karma Yoga class at the summit centre. The class is by donation, and all proceeds will be shared with the local Food Bank, as well as South Okanagan Women in Need Society. Cash donations only please, as the Food Bank can stretch the dollar 3-fold.

Everyone is welcome to attend, whether or not you’re a regular or have never done yoga before. If you’re new at it, be prepared to have a few chuckles, meet some new neighbours, and go with the flow. The class style is gentle flow, and do-what-you-can. Modifications for easier versions of poses will be provided.

After class, please stay for a little social time and coffee, tea, cookies and treats. Feel free to bring a treat to share, if you wish.

If you can’t make the class, but would still like to donate and attend the post-class social, feel free to arrive at 10:30(The weekly Gentle Yoga class will be moved to Thursday morning for this week only).

Hope to see you there.

Christmas Cowboy Style – A Tribute to Jamie Soule

As Friends and Neighbours first, Denise Soule and Sue McEvoy found that their love for music brought them together along with Denise’s husband, Jamie, Anarchist Mountain’s Deputy Fire Chief, our bass player, vocalist and formed our small country group – Double Stop Creek.  It was music that brought us through tragic personal loss when Jamie passed away this past New Year’s Day.  Making the decision to “play on” and continue on our musical journey has been a balm to the heart and “soule”.  

Come on in and gather round and enjoy Christmas, cowboy style, a reminder of simpler times, a reminder that cowboys and cattle don’t get holidays and a neighbour’s call for help with “riding the line” never went unanswered.  When families gathered round the Christmas tree and the excitement of the young ones making sure Santa had those milk and cookies.  Enjoy an evening of untraditional Christmas songs from our favorite country artists the likes of Michael Martin Murphy, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Suzy Bogguss,  Kenny Chesney and Alabama. Gather round and lets have Christmas like Momma used to make it!
Tickets available at Coyotes Sports Simulation or you can shoot me a quick email at doublestopcreek@gmail.com (e-transfers work well)

Cleaner Required


We are looking for a cleaner for our house on Anarchist.  The home is an AirBnB which is busy during the summer and quiet most of the rest of the year.  Our current cleaner is no longer able to continue with the cleaning and we are hoping someone local might be interested in some part time work.

Typically guests stay between 3 and 7 days.  Guests are responsible to leave the house tidy but some additional cleaning is needed.  This usually involves vacuuming the house, wiping down counters and tables, washing and changing bed linens (huge washer and dryer on site), ensuring the fridge is tidy and generally ensuring the home is tidy and inviting.

We charge our guests a $100 service charge for cleaning which goes to our cleaner.  The cleaning, I believe, takes between two to four hours depending on how many guests were in the home and how well they tidy up after themselves.

If interested, or if you know someone who might be interested, please contact me at (604)-626-7272 or via email at Trent@markcrestfoods.com

Thank you!

Tussock Moth Spraying by Cody Tree Services

After speaking to Cody Tree Services regarding spraying for the Tussock Moths, here is the information they provided

Spraying is done from the ground and from a bucket truck. The reach of the bucket truck is 65′ Vertically and 20′ horizontally. From the ground, they can spray 20′ in any direction. They are using bt as the agent to kill the larvae and spraying should be done 10 days after the larvae have hatched. All quotes already provided will be fulfilled in the spring once they have been contacted about the hatching.

We have had a few people provide us with the quotes they have been given by Cody Tree Services and they are listed below for your general information

Quote 1- Spray the Fir trees on the property for Tussock Moth close to the driveway (approx. 75′) and within the reach of the delivery system of the spray truck and close to the home site – $1,051.85 (includes GST and Fuel Surcharge)

Quote 2 – Spray the Fir trees on the property for Tussock Moth close to the driveway (approx. 550′) and within the reach of the delivery system of the spray truck and close to the home site. Bucket truck required for trees along driveway to reach the top of the trees. – $1,160.85 (includes GST and Fuel Surcharge)

We have contacted OMEI to see what their plans are regarding spraying their properties, and this is the reply we received.

We are considering the merits of spraying part of our lands. We expect to make a decision early in the New Year and we will let you know of our decision.

Best regards,
