Appreciating volunteers and beautiful yards

An afternoon of volunteer and garden appreciation on Oct. 5 in Cache Creek.

On behalf of the Cache Creek Beautification Society and the Village of Cache Creek an afternoon of  Volunteer and Garden Appreciation is set to take place on Sunday, Oct. 5 from 1-3pm at the Cache Creek Recreational Park. All are welcome to attend. There will be a corn feast, refreshments and dessert to enjoy.

The Volunteer appreciation day is to acknowledge those in the community of Cache Creek who give their time to help local groups, events and societies run successfully. Join us in celebrating those who give of their time and talents for the betterment of the village and its residents. Each volunteer will receive a Certificate of Appreciation.

The Garden appreciation certificates will be given to the residents and businesses who strive to make their properties look beautiful. Certificates will be given for front yards and back yards. Some properties have beautiful backyards that only neighbours and close friends get to see; therefore, there will be a special category for nominated backyards.

To nominate a group or individual Volunteer for appreciation and to nominate a neighbour, a business or a resident’s Garden for a certificate of appreciation, please notify the Cache Creek Activities Programmer, Marcie Down at or call 778-207-6957.
