A lovely warm day greeted Irene and our guests as they discovered through Irene’s words, her passion for helping those in need. Irene was a teacher with school district #23 for many years, eventually deciding to return to school herself to become a counsellor. And counsellor she was! Irene spearheaded many international initiatives while inspiring her students in West Kelowna to join in and eventually take the lead on these projects. The positive differences this group has made through her mentorship and passions have included supporting needs through her church, and many international social justice causes.
Although Irene has now retired, and continues to enjoy her 3 grown children and their families, she still follows the needs of others and we know we will be hearing another “ Amazing Irene story soon!”
