Every once and a while we are reminded that we live in an amazing community – not just a  city but rather a network of families and residents who are eager to lend a helping hand and who care about the wellbeing of others.

video: Community Spirit at Mill Creek April 2012

This youtube.com video shot on location showcases how some Kelowna residents came out to help a home owner who’s home has been threatened with rising floor waters along Mill Creek.  Its great too see such amazing community spirit!

As I write this article, the threat of flooding has subsided in and around Kelowna but there are still certain areas that are being watched.
