Last week the Summerland Trans Canada Trail Society held its Annual General Meeting.

President Henry Sielmann listed a number of achievements.

A new website, summerlandtrails.ca was set up along with a new Facebook page.

Two historical signs were installed along the KVR Trail in Mount Conkle Park with a third one following this summer.

An outhouse was erected near the gazebo with funding from the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan.

Transportation and installation of the signs and the outhouse was completed by public works department.

The society participated in the Trail of the Okanagan Project along Highway 97 and developed the course map for the Giant’s Head Grind race.

A successful membership drive increased the number of Trans Canada Trail members to more than 60, some of whom have been involved in trail maintenance activities from the Summerland Trestle Bridge to Thirsk Lake.
