Peachland Wellness Centre End of Summer Gala
COVID-19 has taken its ugly toll on all of us, with many suffering COVID fatigue and mental illness issues rising dramatically over the last year. However, the suffering of COVID fatigue can never be compared with the suffering of people who have lived through having the illness, being hospitalized, or worse - losing your life or the life of a loved one.
Is the end of this nightmare on the horizon? For all of us at the Peachland Wellness Centre we are living in hope. The pandemic has taken a toll on our services and some programs have been cancelled or limited due to the restrictions, but we keep going, navigating our way through this new normal and offering what we can when we can.
Last year we also lost some of our major fundraising events such as the Christmas Market and the End of Summer Gala which have struck a big blow to us not only financially, but these events also offered great social gatherings and merry times and highlighted the amazing work we do in the community.
So, as we head into warmer weather and vaccinations are ramping up, we have decided to be cautiously optimistic and announce that our 3rd annual End of Summer Gala will go ahead on September 25th at the Peachland Community Centre with an alternate date of March 26th, 2022 being planned as a backup should restrictions and pandemic concerns still be an issue.
Your health and safety will be of our paramount concern and procedures will be in place such as limited seating at tables and even more stringent attention to food service.
I know we at the Wellness Centre are longing for some well-deserved fun and like the rest of Peachland, we want to laugh and see our friends again, enjoy a gourmet dinner, and dance the night away to the amazingly talented Marty Edwards who has once again offered his services to entertain us for the night.
Let us hopefully say goodbye to COVID and party (safely) at the biggest and best Gala dinner this side of the Okanagan!
