Earlier this month, Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray presented a prestigious award to Rutland resident Adina Frank for her 30-plus years of donating plants and handiworks towards fundraising for Kelowna General Hospital.

The Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award is a Canadian award established to honour Canadian caregivers and volunteers, presented to individuals who make voluntary contributions, behind-the-scenes, provide extraordinary help or care to individuals or groups in the community.

At age 96, Mrs. Frank is still active with her church and continues to volunteer for her community.
