We are pleased to announce that our Peachland Centre Director, Patricia Barrows, received the Councilors Award of Merit at the District of Peachland Civic Awards. Patricia was selected for making a significant contribution to the Peachland Community.
Patricia started with us over 15 years ago. In 2013, we saw her as an ideal candidate to open the Youth Centre at the Peachland Historic School. Patricia has a gift for working with local youth, families, and community organizations. She has strategically immersed OBGC in Peachland’s event culture. Patricia started the annual Easter Egg Hunt – increasing participation in 3 years. She has also lead OBGC in in Canada Day celebrations, Christmas Light Up, and the Light Up pre-parade party.
Patricia has more than doubled registration in After School programs and has developed tween programs. The Peachland area was in major need of programs for tweens so Patricia sought to meet that need.
Patricia, we and the community members you serve are proud of your accomplishments in Peachland.
