Kelowna Rotarians gathered volunteers for an early morning gardening project to help make Munson Pond Park a little more beautiful.
Volunteers planted 40 birches and 14 cedars with the support of City of Kelowna staff, Valley First staff and UBC Okanagan students.
âThis is what Rotary does in communities and Rotary works with other groups in the community to bring people together. It’s a good example, âsaid Kelowna Rotarian Colin Pritchard.

âIt’s so nice to see young people involved in this project. They may be able to see the result more than some of us over the years, but being able to leave a little mark on the planet is wonderful, âsaid Kathy Butler of the Rotary Club of Kelowna.
