Creston, BC – October 2, 2020: Creston citizens, on behalf of Town of Creston Council and staff - thank you for all you are doing to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community. In the words of Dr. Bonnie Henry, “By supporting each other to do the right thing, by offering kindness and care to our friends and neighbours, we can protect our communities.” Since March, Creston citizens have done just that. They have supported each other, showed kindness to those who needed help the most, and continue to work so that our vulnerable community members continue to stay safe.
