Vernon council will gather together on Monday, June 12 at 11:45 a.m. outside city hall, to pay respects and unveil a plaque in honour of a former colleague ahead of their regular meeting at 1:30 p.m.

Dalvir Nahal was first elected to council in 2014, then was re-elected for a second term in 2018. She died of cancer while still in office on Sept. 5, 2021.

As part of a tribute to Nahal and her long-standing service to the community, council has arranged to have a bronze memorial plaque installed on a large rock face, immediately outside the entrance of city hall, in what’s known as Spirit Square.

Community donations were raised for the plaque, which includes a quote by Pericles that reads: “What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments but what is woven into the lives of others.”

Members of the public are welcome to attend the unveiling ceremony, which will include council, special guests, and city staff.
