Nikkei Internment Memorial Centre Peace Garden Clean-up a Success

Thank you to all the volunteers who took time out of their busy lives to help with the spring clean-up of the garden at the Nikkei Internment Memorial Centre.

The clean-up took place on April 30th, from 10:00 am to 2:00pm.  The weather was perfect for working outside and the work that was completed meant that the Centre could open with a beautiful garden.

Nikkei Centre Garden Spruce- Up

The Village of New Denver and the Nikkei Internment Memorial Centre would like to extend their appreciation to those who attended the annual Garden Spruce- Up. We had a small but mighty crew of volunteers and the garden is now looking great! A big thank-you also goes to Myles Berney for lending his gardening expertise and to the SLUGS for the use of their gardening tools and helping hands. Hope to see you all again in the fall!”
