Enderby Museum hosts AGM

The Enderby Cliffs will be a hot topic at the Enderby and District Museum’s annual general meeting.

The Enderby Cliffs will be a hot topic at the Enderby and District Museum’s annual general meeting.

Five guest speakers have been arranged to talk about the Cliffs at the meeting which is set for 7 p.m. Nov. 20 at the museum.

“That’s the good news,” said Naomi Fournier, museum curator and administrator, about the speakers lined up for the evening.

“The even better news is they each promised to talk for about 10 minutes. So there should be lots of time for coffee and goodies afterwards.”

The lineup of speakers includes:

Roy Van Ryswyk, a semi-retired geologist from Enderby. His talk about the geology of the Cliffs has been well received when he’s done it for hiking groups at the chamber of commerce;

Rosalind Williams, co-ordinator of language and culture programs at the Splatsin Teaching Centre in Enderby. She will speak  about the significance of the Enderby Cliffs to the Splatsin Nation;

Joan Cowan, retired museum curator and administrator, will recall the thwarted plans of B.C. Hydro to run the hydro lines over the edge of the Cliffs, which was the beginning of the movement of turning  the Cliffs into a provincial park;

Brad Case, Enderby councillor, and Phil Macintyre-Paul , executive director of the Shuswap Trail Alliance, will tag-team about the past, present and maybe the future of the Cliffs trail.
