“In celebration of its 20th anniversary, the PIT Stop program and Kamloops United Church are staging a volunteer celebration on Sunday, June 11. Celebrations begin at 421 St. Paul St. at 11:15 a.m., with speeches and recognition of longtime volunteers. The event then moves across the street to the former Kamloops Daily News property for a burger lunch and live music.
Windjack said the whole community is invited, including past and present volunteers, guests of the regular meal program and others. And, as the party continues, another group of volunteers will be back in the church’s kitchen across the street, cooking the daily meal.”
