Volunteer: Families and skilled volunteers wanted

Why not volunteer as a family to get out together and help others.

Dragon boats and horses are featured in today’s column.

The Kelowna Dragon Boat Festival Society happens this Sunday, July 28, between 9 am and 3 pm.

Why not volunteer as a family to help load and unload paddlers into boats for races? Children age 13 years and older are welcome.

Enjoy the fresh air, lose your voice cheering for the contestants, and make this a safe event for paddlers.

Contact Corinne Almas at 250-860-3147 or corinnealmas@hotmail.com.

Now switch gears and think about farms. Would you enjoy seeing horses in paddocks?

Do you want to hear a donkey bray, watch the llamas graze or take a goat for a walk?

Do you like to spend time with a diverse group of people, from kids to seniors with a variety of abilities having fun through new experiences and achievements?

Is your attitude positive? Do you have experience on farms or with a broad cross section of people?

Could you meld with a group of focused, farm type people with big hearts, who have a huge desire to support the success of Arion, resulting in the best services possible for riders, families and volunteers?

If you answered an enthusiastic “Yes!” then you are the volunteer that Arion is looking to meet.
