Eleanore Bolton is recognized for her work in the community she loves

Enderby resident Eleanore Bolton has been recognized for her 25 years of service to her community’s historical society.

At the annual general meeting of the Armstrong/Enderby Historical Society, April 7 at the Enderby Museum, Bolton was presented with a picture of the Enderby Cliffs engraved with an expression of appreciation for her service as treasurer.

Bolton was born in Enderby in 1930, to Ruby and Clifford Lidstone. Her early childhood was spent on her family’s farm in the shadow of the Enderby Cliffs. Her teen years were spent in the heritage house on the corner of Sicamous and Cliff Streets that her parents lived in until her mother’s death.

Bolton’s marriage in 1951 took her away to northern British Columbia and Alberta, with 30 years spent in Kamloops, after which she and her husband returned to the North Okanagan and were able to become involved once again in the communities of their youth.
