Bev Campbell, chair of the board for the United Way of Cranbrook and Kimberley, welcomed the arrival of the Kimberley contingent who had relayed the United Way flag down the North Star Rails to Trails to Cranbrook to kick off the United Way’s first annual Friendship Festival, a celebration of the relationship between the two communities on Saturday, Sept. 22.

From the Clock Tower Square, the group carried the flag to Rotary Park, where they were met by Cranbrook Mayor Wayne Stetski, and where a ceremony was held to start the festival.

Next year is Kimberley’s turn to host the festival, and Cranbrook’s turn to relay the flag to Kimberley (uphill this time!).
