Kindale opens new Armstrong centre

Friday was a day full of smiles in Armstrong.

Sue Phillips, president of the board of directors, and B Elliott, executive director, announced the official opening of the Kindale Development Association’s Lydia Boss Centre on Patterson Avenue.

“The Lydia Boss Centre is much more than just a building,” said Phillips. “Everyone is getting settled in the programming headquarters with no interruption of any services.”

“Thank you to everyone involved in supporting making this dream a reality,” added Elliott.

Potential tenants have been touring the seven affordable apartments on the second floor of the building.

Applications are available online at or by contacting Ann Caron at Kindale.

The one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments are available to anyone who meets the requirements of affordable income levels.

In a letter to North Okanagan residents, former MP Darrel Stinson wrote: “For more than 50 years Kindale Developmental Association has inspired us as they serve marginalized individuals in our communities. This new facility is more than just brick and mortar but a declaration of community pride and compassion for all residents.

“The Lydia Boss Centre will serve the North Okanagan for many years to come.”

Kindale would like to invite the community to join them at the grand opening of the Lydia Boss Centre on Thursday, March 14, from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
