One young Salmon Arm resident wants to bring people together to celebrate the spirit of friendship.

Eight-year-old Brody Savoie has scheduled the second-annual Friendship Day for Saturday June 25 at the Salmon Arm Wharf from 1 to 4 p.m.

“I think that its important for people who are old friends to come together, Friends can be all ages shapes and sizes,” Savoie said.

Savoie said the entire event will be free.

This year’s Friendship Day will feature: Sack races, three-legged races, golf ball spoon races and other activities.

Groups from various summer camps from around the Shuswap will be present to show off their summer programs.

Last year, the Salmon Arm art gallery was on hand to help make friendship bracelets and they are expected to return with another fun craft this year.

Friendship day began last year when Savoie presented the idea to city council to Council, proposing an event that showed love and appreciation.
