PENTICTON - Members of the “TimeForChange” Facebook group are taking the conversation offline and onto the streets this evening. They have organized to meet in front of City Hall at 5:30 p.m. Monday before the city council meeting.

The goal of the congregation is to make sure city council knows the group is serious about making sure ideas for change are followed through.

Members have also made “Head banging druggie” shirts they will sell this evening, and then in local stores tomorrow. The shirts reference a comment made by Coun. Katie Robinson at the last council meeting, which also spurred the conversation amongst residents and the creation of TimeForChange.

“This will be a test to see who really wants to change our town,” said Olivia Bravi on the TimeForChange page.

The 21-year-old called out to the community to show up at city hall and show their support for causes they believe need more attention and action. She said people need to show their faces and speak up, especially the young people in town.

A public hearing and regular city council meeting will start at 6 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall, Monday Aug. 18.
