After going into hibernation while between owners, Ye Olde Welcome Inn hosted a delicious pig roast last Saturday, and the new team was able to raise $705 for Highway to Healing.

Guests donated what they could instead of getting charged for the meal.

“It is heartening to see the wide spread community support for the work we do,” said Gail Barriskill, board chair for Highway of Healing. “With our recent expansion to include families from Osoyoos and OK Falls as well as Oliver, we really need the support.

“We recognize that the small communities in which we live have many opportunities to support worthy causes, and when this new business approached us with their fundraising idea we were grateful to have been chosen.”
