Today, we celebrated the life of Darren Oslund, member of the South Okanagan Kin Club since it’s inception in 2016. Prior to 2016, Darren was part of the Penticton and Summerland Kinsmen Clubs. Darren also volunteered with the Penticton Peach Festival, Scouts, and where ever the call to volunteer led him.
It was touching to hear Darren’s friends and family speak about the impact that he had on their lives. Darren was a big man, with an even bigger heart.
Over 35 not-for-profit groups are going to be showcased at the Community Expo on Saturday. Check out our featured exhibitors. Come on Saturday to meet them and the other awesome groups that are going to be there!
