The Vanderburgh family arrived in Summerland from Ontario in 1907.

The Vanderburgh family arrived in Summerland from Ontario in 1907. After serving in WWI Alfred Vanderburgh earned his medical degree and practiced as a physician and surgeon in Summerland from 1926 until 1955, with time out to serve in WWII. He was awarded the Good Citizen Cup in 1951 and, keeping it in the family, his wife Marjorie won the Cup in 1956. Citizens dedicated to our community have always been appreciated, although official recognition started in 1938 with a trophy donated by Reid Johnston. The Summerland Museum would like to congratulate all of the outstanding individuals, businesses and organizations recognized at the 77th Annual Business and Community Awards presentation. Welcome to our history!
