FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS


We are not a large Community, but when the people of our town get together, they make a big event.
As this event is in November, it is quite chilly, sometimes it is snowing...(none in the forcast for this evening)  The streets and business' are decorated with lights, also, peoples homes in the community.  The lights are turned off at 7:00 pm, then lit up again!  Later in the evening there are fireworks.  There is something for everyone:  food, entertainments, crafts for the kids, displays of  local arts and crafts to buy, (or just enjoy)  People visit from nearby communities...It is definitely a Celebration!

JUST A LATE FALL DAY IN SUMMERLAND BRITISH COLUMBIA

Big news for our end of the Valley!

 We must have a lot of loyal gamblers to warrent such an expensive building.  (but it does serve quite a large area)  There is one in Kelowna, Vernon and Kamloops to the north of us...but I believe that closest one to the south is in Omak, Washington.

Two of a Kind: Library Song

NEW LIBRARY IN SUMMERLAND


"I NEVER FEEL LONELY IF I'VE GOT A BOOK - THEY'RE LIKE OLD FRIENDS.  EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT READING THEM OVER AND OVER AGAIN YOU KNOW THEY ARE THERE  AND THEY'RE PART OF YOUR HISTORY.   THEY SORT OF TELL A STORY ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY THROUGH LIFE."
                                                   -----Emilia Fox----- 

 

This is now progress in Summerland....The first picture is of our old library (the third  one in my memory) which was located on a side street.  The rest are pictures of our new library which is located on the main street.  I hope this is a good sign of progress in today's technological age....We are a part of the Okanagan Regional Library system, so the books go back and forth between the member Libraries.
