This year marks the 8th annual Welcome Week in Revelstoke and there are more events than ever before.
Organizer Jill Zacharias, the city’s social development coordinator, has been planning the event since the beginning. She said the event is about connecting.
“Welcome Week is for everyone, old comers and new comers,” she added.
Participating is easy, come to at least one event, meet one new person and make them feel welcome.
“If you don’t want to lose that personal friendliness in our community it is up to all of us to maintain that,” Zacharias said.
