Enough credit is never given those contributors to such a massive infrastructure undertaking as our new Highway 97; we do not recognize the efforts to prove feasibility, secure the right-of-way, design, finance and construct such a public works.

The magnificent vista of Vernon presented north-bound was not an accident; it took care and attention to esthetics to showcase our lakes as an entry to Vernon.

This sets a new standard for how we present ourselves to visitors, and should be the inspiration for other initiatives such as the Kal Lake look-out improvements and the Okanagan College to Crystal Waters trail.

Let’s continue efforts at a local level and show visitors why we live in the most exquisite setting in Beautiful British Columbia.
