Whoa….I have to say whoa, the year has flown by. Properties selling this year have given the Okanagan valley record sales! Never in the South Okanagan’s history have we sold so much property. People coming from all over, the prairies, Europe, Vancouver, lots of new people and lots of construction like never before. Penticton alone has 1/2 dozen new subdivisions started, Oliver has a world class race track, can you believe it? The wine valley is thriving, it’s great to see. I grew up in Vancouver and the buzz here makes me feel like the buzz you get in a city because everyone’s making money! It does make the world go ’round but December makes us all reflect and give. Give to someone in your community this December, there’s still plenty who need a helping hand. I give every year to the Boys and Girls club, the Children’s Hospital in Vancouver, the Canadian Cancer Society and locally where I just want to. I pick a client every year that I think could use a food voucher and send a Christmas card with hopes that they can too have a Merry Christmas. Little gestures go a long way….I hope it snows and makes everything festive to start the month off right. Best regards and merriment everyone! JP
