The Oliver Community Arts Council donated the proceeds from its Community Christmas Concert to the Oliver Food Bank in early December. Pictured are Jennifer Mapplebeck (L) and Brian Mapplebeck (C) presenting both a cheque and food items collected at the event to food bank volunteer Jim Ouellette (R).
The Oliver Community Arts Council thanks all performers, who helped keep our overhead costs to a minimum by performing out of the goodness of their hearts. They are: the OES Handbell Team, the OES choir, and the Sage Valley Voices, all led by Lori Martine, family entertainer Mat Duffus, Vintage Voices Choir, storyteller JoAnn Turner, guitarist Jeremy Cook, rockin’ duo Ken Repkow and Mikie Spillett, and the Dance Studio of Oliver. You put on an awesome show!
Thank you to our sponsor Your Dollar Store with More (Osoyoos) who provided goodie bag candies and quiz prizes.
Thanks also to committee volunteers Brian and Jennifer Mapplebeck, Shirley Corley-Rourke, and Penelope Johnson.
Please continue to support the Oliver Food Bank this winter. Hunger doesn’t end after Christmas.
