SI Osoyoos Bottle Drive

Reported by Kim Bush.

On Tuesday September 23 we held our annual bottle drive. Throughout the summer we have a “select group” of visitors save all their “empties” which we collect in the fall. Today we sorted, counted, and delivered the refundable items to the local recycle depot. We had the help of two “Soroptimisters” with trucks who transported the cans, bottles & juice containers to the recycle location. Our efforts sent Treasurer Dawn Lemke to the bank with a deposit of more than $400. We started at 9 , finished by 11am. And enjoyed coffee donated by our local McDonalds.

In the top pic, it would seem that lucky V.P. Doris Walton found 2 un-opened cans of beer. She generously gave them to our hard-working truck drivers.
