One of the largest standing societies in the Okanagan is in vital need of new members.
The Okanagan Historical Society, founded in 1925 in Vernon, is struggling to survive, due to the age of its members.
The group was the only branch of the Historical Society until 1948, when other communities around the greater Okanagan began to establish their own.
The society will host a special general meeting at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 11, at the Mackie House in Coldstream.
The meeting will discuss a new approach for the society moving forward, and to fill necessary positions.
Additionally, Russell Shortt will be giving a talk on the history of Coldstream.
Members and anyone interested in local history are welcome to attend.
More information on the society can be found at okanaganhistoricalsociety.org. It has helped to record and appreciate the history of the Okanagan for almost 100 years.
