There were no tickets left at the door for the Mrs. Santa Night Out tonight, which was sold out within half an hour of opening. The annual Osoyoos Secondary School Dry Grad fundraiser seems to have attracted more local residents than ever this year, who came to the event despite the -9 C temperatures outside. The local Grandmothers For Africa group was one of the booths present with their wares available for purchase.
The Town of Osoyoos, the South Okanagan Transit Society and BC Transit are getting into the spirit of the season with extended service hours on Fridays in December.
On December 6, 13, 20 and 27, 2013 an added morning trip, the Route #3 Osoyoos to Kelowna, will leave Osoyoos at 8:30 am and arrive at the Orchard Park Mall at 10:30 am. The added afternoon trip, also on Route #3, will depart from the Orchard Park Mall at 4:30 pm and arrive in Osoyoos at 6:30 pm.
