Mr. Mikes
The Pop Shoppe
Centennial Pool

My family moved there when I was 1, we moved away when I was 13. I went to Columbia Elementary - I remember the teachers showing us how to use snake bite kits, how to recognize an rattler and "don't leave the school grounds!". I went to Carmi for middle school.
I haven't failed until I quit.

Been here a long time, even before being a resident, and have to say you win digger. Remember the Green Grocer?

The old wooden water tower along east side road, I guess it wasn't actually in Penticton though.

Or when Joanne Grimaldi's "Chucks and Charlies" was the only place you could buy cool blue jeans? She was a pretty hot mom then too.
