3 new sculptures created by Indigenous Okanagan artists now on the Pelmewash  Parkway
 
On MONDAY AUGUST 2nd starting at 8 AM our club members will be gathering at the southern most indigenous sculpture on Pelmewash Parkway for a special Reflective Walk/Bike/Drive along Pelmewash Walkway. 
 
Members of Lake Country Rotary, in harmony with other Rotary members, will undertake a Reflective Walk along Pelmewash Parkway. The walk will include a reciting of and reflection upon the TRC’s 94 Calls to Action: Readings of the 94 Calls to Action will occur adjacently to three sculptures made by Okanagan Artists Clint George (of the Penticton First Nation) and Les Louis (of the Similkameen First Nation).
 
Note: Approximately 45 minutes will be spent at each of the three sculpture sites so there will not be enough time to walk from one to another during the event. Rotarians and friends can always join in at any point along the way. We will end with a social gathering at OKF Grill or Gatzke's in Oyama. Bike riding and car-pooling are encouraged.
