Carla Ohmenzetter was elected by acclamation as the new president of the Agur Lake Camp Society at its annual meeting in Penticton on April 17.
She replaces Barb Hatton, retiring president, who has been a board member since 2006.
Ohmenzetter is involved in community activities and has served on the Summerland municipal council.
Agur Lake Camp is a wilderness camp in the mountains 20 kilometres west of Summerland.
Its design makes it accessible for special needs families. The facilities at the camp will be tested by a few families for the first time this summer.
In her report for the year, Hatton said the camp society has reached major milestones through the help of volunteers and partners.
Last summer, two cabins were built on campus and placed on site through the partnership efforts of Agur Lake Camp Society with Okanagan College, School District #67 Okanagan Skaha and C.M. Edwards construction.
A third cabin is already under construction for installation this summer.
Building supplies have been donated by Tim-br mart, Home Hardware and Rona. A picnic pavilion is under construction by Dave Phillips of Wine Country Timber Craft.
The firm of Allen and Maurer offers ongoing design information regarding the continually evolving campsite plan.
Hatton said many others have contributed to bringing Agur Lake Camp from a dream to a reality. She said that volunteers have logged 3,362 hours and have driven 11,071 kilometres on camp business.
Other officers acclaimed at the meeting were vice-president Beth Bonten, treasurer Ray Skoreyko and secretary Keith Dixon.
Completing the board are directors Amanda Lewis, Barbara Robson, Milton Orris, Simon Wells and Steve Tuck.
Linda Morgenstern is an ex-officio director.
