1st Annual Food Drive – a great success in Salmon Arm

On April 21st, the three Rotary Clubs from Salmon Arm collected 6000 lbs. of food on our 1st Annual Food Drive.  More than 60 volunteers participated, including some from the food banks and churches, and also our three Interact students and two inbound Exchange Students.
