Aquatic donation…

The Central Okanagan Hospice House in Kelowna is the recipient of two new aquarium fish tanks, contributed by donations from both the Okanagan Aquarium Club, $540, and Total Pet, $400. Accepting the new aquariums from Total Pet’s Nikki Harvey (right), and Gordon James (beside Harvey), from the aquarium club, are Anne O’Keefe (left), general manager of the hospice facility, and Susan Steen, executive director of the Central Okanagan Hospice Association. The donation was inspired in particular by two people: Melody Cross, who was an enthusiastic member of the aquarium club, and Bram van der Mey, Harvey’s father and a long-time fish enthusiast himself. Both received hospice care prior to passing away last year. The Total Pet donation was raised from the store’s pet photo with Mrs. Claus  campaign, which was assisted by Tammy Bowman and Vicky Westlake (Mrs. Claus).    - Barry Gerding/Capital News
