The breakfast program at the elementary school in Rock Creek recently caught the attention of the Osoyoos Soroptimists and led the club to donate $500 to assist this worthwhile project.

Osoyoos Soroptimists Doris Walton and Heide Wright presented the cheque to Carrie Mader, a student support teacher at the West Boundary Elementary School in Rock Creek.

Soroptimist Doris Walton says, “As a club, we encourage the education of women and children here and around the world, and a good breakfast each morning, starts the learning process.”

Heide Wright adds, “And congratulations to the Rock Creek school for this breakfast program maintained by volunteers.”

Mader explained the volunteer program has been in operation for a number of years, and provides breakfast for an average of 50 pupils each week. Mader says the menu varies and the pupils help. One of their favourite jobs is flipping the pancakes,” she said.

In thanking the Soroptimists, Mader said, “We appreciate this donation from the Soroptimists, it will go a long way to continue the breakfast program at the school.”
