Congratulations to our very own, Rikki Bassett who is being recognized by Valley First, a division of First West Credit Union, for her leadership in the community through our Employee Lead Well Program. As part of this recognition she received $500 to donate to the charity of her choice, she chose the Inspired Word Café. The Inspired Word Café Society (IWC) is a community arts-organization that provides accessible performance poetry and literary arts events, training, and workshops for professional and amateur writers and performers across the Okanagan. They strive to promote inclusiveness and offer a platform that is accessible to everyone, especially the marginalized by offering events that are low-cost or free. Thank you Rikki for being a part of this inspiring organization and making a difference in your community through the arts!
