The mural on the wall of the IOOF Hall on Main Street will be completed and dedicated this Saturday.

Sharon Stone of the Faith Rebekah Lodge in Summerland, said the mural, to mark the 200th anniversary of the Fur Brigade Trail, is an important part of the history of the community and the region.

Larry Hunter, who also painted murals on the fruit packing house, the Horseshoe Club building in Memorial Park and St. Stephen’s Anglican Church, painted the image on the building.

“I wanted it to look like  you’re walking the trail,” she said. “It’s a true impression of the view while on the trail,” she said. “It’s like you’re part of that brigade.”

Donations of any amount are still being accepted for the mural and those who donate will have their names included on a plaque.

The unveiling will take place on Saturday at 7 p.m. A lecture series on the trail will follow at the museum.
