Inevitable change

There have been quite a few changes in downtown Summerland since this picture was taken in 1957. The south end of Kelly Avenue has gone almost full circle and is once again rather bare. At one time it was occupied by the library/health unit building (built in 1958) and Parkdale Place (built in 1961, later called Kelly Care.) In 1982 a new library was constructed but more changes brought the recent opening of a bigger, better facility. Joel A. Barker said “Vision with action can change the world.” This little corner of the world has seen vision in action before and it will be interesting to see what changes are in store in the near future.
