The developers and builders held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday as they launched the first phase of The Shores of Summerland.

The developers and builders held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday as they launched the first phase of The Shores of Summerland. The 28-hectare development touts 762 metres of waterfront along the shoreline of Okanagan Lake, in the Trout Creek area. A natural wetland reserve has been built and dedicated to the city of Summerland as a public park, with a public walkway along the shore. A total of 10 future phases are also planned, along with a marina and pool. During the celebration visitors were invited to tour one of the units and to guess a seven-digit code in order to win the show home. Donations were collected for the Kidsport charity. Pictured from left are: Glen Vause, Colleen Rolston, Ken Tremblett, Mayor Janice Perrino, Bill Park, Anne Goulbourn and Barry Jackson.
