A mural planned for the wall of the IOOF Hall on Man Street will commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Fur Brigade Trail.
The project is organized by the Faith Rebekah Lodge and the mural will be painted by Penticton artist Larry Hunter in August.
The municipality has given its approval for the work, said Sharon Stone, a member of the Faith Rebekah Lodge.
The trail through the Okanagan Valley was formed in September, 1811 and allowed for the development of the region.
“If it wasn’t for the Brigade Trail coming through here, there wouldn’t be any Summerland,” Stone said.
The cost of the mural is around $8,000. The lodge will approach service clubs and other organizations for donations.
Donations can also be made through Municipal Hall.
