Kindale celebrates Christmas

Community luncheons in Vernon and Salmon Arm

Kindale served up a lot of smiles last week.

The developmental association helped clients, supporters and community members get in the Christmas spirit with its annual luncheon last week.

Events were held in both Vernon and Salmon Arm.

Gumtree Catering cooked up turkey and all the fixin’s for the annual fundraising event in Vernon.

Along with all the food and fun, those in attendance were treated to sounds of the season performed by members, as well as some celebrity carols with Mayor Akbal Mund and SUN FM personality Brian Martin.
