The leader of the Green Party of BC will be in Nelson on the weekend.
Adam Olsen, the party’s recently elected interim leader said citizens of the Nelson-Creston area are often out front on progressive social, economic, and environmental issues, which makes them a great fit for the Green Party.
“So we’re reaching out with three different events that I will be on hand to host, and we encourage everyone to come by and get to know us better,” he said.
On October 26, from 2 to 3 p.m., Olsen will be at the Cottonwood Market along with members of the Provincial Council of the Green Party of BC, and local Greens as they visit the last farmer’s market of the season.
Later that day, from 4 to 5 p.m., he will attend the annual general meeting of the Nelson-Creston Green Party Constituency Association.
This year’s AGM will be held at the Rod and Gun Club, 801 Railway Avenue, Nelson. Everyone is welcome to come and get engaged with local Greens.
Finally, from 5:30 to 9 p.m., Olsen will attend a local harvest dinner and social sponsored by Nelson-Creston Greens including drinks, dinner, dessert, music, and a silent auction. This event will also be held at the Rod and Gun Club.
