Dear editor,

After 105 years in the Comox Valley, the Cumberland Pythian Sisters are closing their temple.

In the early days most of their “good works” were done in Cumberland. However, the entire Valley has been included for many years.

In 1986 the sisters joined the Bingo Association and began doing bingo in the lower Elks Hall, giving them access to Gaming Funds. From then until 2011 they were able to donate to local groups $350,614. Before closing we were able to donate an additional $9,000 to Santa’s Workshop, Salvation Army, C.V. Lifeline Society, Therapeutic Riding, C.V. Food Bank, C.V. Hospice Society and Lilli House.

We regret no longer being able to do this as the need is always there. We wish to thank all those we have worked with over the years and to wish you all the best in the future, and bless you for all that you do.
