The Sommers Garden at the Ponoka Hospital and Care Centre enjoyed an instant facelift on June 4 after the Ponoka Kinette Club got to work during their most recent Done-in-a-Day project.

With donations of plants and supplies from the Ponoka Kinette Club, Arbutus Nursery and Extra Foods, the Kinettes spent the evening revitalizing the flowerbeds and planters for the enjoyment of the patients at the hospital.

“Having spent time here, it’s truly a beautiful escape,” said Kinette Amanda Bowick.

Several of the patients agreed, coming out during the project to show their appreciation for the Kinettes’ efforts.

With the completion of the splash park in sight, the membership is turning their focus back to smaller, hands-on “Done in a Day” projects that benefit the community. With this new direction, the club hopes to get back to their service roots and also grow their membership.

If you are interested in joining the Kinettes, or if you have a suggestion for a Done in a Day project, please contact the club at ponokakinetteclub@hotmail.com or phone Leah Cline at 403-783-4389.
