News from the LV Historical Society

Thanks to all who entered the 100 questions Centenary quiz:  The winner  is John Jeffreys.

Raffle tickets can be purchased up until the Meadow Creek Fall Faire for several great prizes; and to support the Historical Society!

 The Museum is open weekends and statutory holidays from mid-June to Mid-September.

The 100-Year birthday celebration was an unqualified success. We had planned for approximately 250 people, and that is about how many turned up. A number of adventurous people attired themselves in “period” costume—fun. Face painting, kids’ games, collectors’ displays, and the in-museum treasure hunt all added to the festive spirit.

Thank you to so many people who volunteered their time and/or equipment. And, course, thank you to the following agencies/people who contributed funds to pay for it all: RDCK Area D, Columbia Basin Trust, Columbia Power Corporation, Boards by George, Hamill Creek Timber Homes, Grizzly Bear Ranch, Meadow Creek Store, and Lardeau Valley Service.

Survey….from the Young Agrarians..

From  the new Columbia Basin Young Agrarians Coordinator who  will be organizing farm related events across the Kootenays:

” I want the events to be meaningful and relevant so I have created a survey to see what type of events farm folk are interested in attending in their area.

The survey is here: https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLSeEiaz-Jq0Sa28IU0…/viewform
Thank you for your great ideas and feedback!”
