Friendship Day: Event organizer, Brody Savoie hops past Kaden MacGowan in a sack race during the first annual Shuswap Friendship Day festivities at Marine Park on Saturday, June 20; Brody prepares to throw a soaked sponge and  Sam Richmond and friend Olyn Baker participate in a three-legged race.

Seven-year-old Brody recently appeared before Salmon Arm Council with his mother, Michelle Kuster, about having a Friendship Day.

As many as 50 children arrived throughout the day to enjoy the activities mother and son had organized, including several games and races, friendship bracelet making and a wet sponge toss.

One of Brody’s favourite places is the Salmon Arm Library and books were also handed out during the event. He has been researching the United Nations and readily announces his next big idea is to encourage others to celebrate Friendship Day and “have it happen all over the world.”
