Lions to haunt Halloween

Enderby council voted Monday to donate $500 to the Enderby Lions Club for spooky festivities

Enderby politicians are making sure children have a Halloween to remember.

Council voted Monday to donate $500 to the Enderby Lions Club, which is organizing the Halloween haunted house.

“They do an amazing job and give back to the community,” said Mayor Greg McCune of the Lions.

The club hosts the haunted house Oct. 31 and  it costs about $2,000 for the program, with the funds previously coming from the club, the city and the business community.

“Our club will be providing hot dogs and hot chocolate as we have in the past and the fire department will be supervising the bonfire and helping with the haunted trail,” said Peter Gilowski, Halloween project chairperson.

Water workshop funded

The City of Enderby is playing a lead role in water stewardship.

Council has agreed to provide $1,000 for the Fraser Basin Council’s 11th annual stewardship workshop in Grindrod in November.

“We anticipate 50 to 60 participants,” said Erin Vieira, with the Fraser Basin Council.

“The purpose of the workshop is to provide an event for networking and professional development for stewardship organizations and to celebrate the work of the stewardship community with an award.”

It’s expected those in attendance will represent First Nations, conservation organizations, federal and provincial agencies and local governments.

The Regional District of North Okanagan’s Area F is also contributing $1,000 to the event.
