Past residents of the Fort St. Jame and Vanderhoof area have a look at a photo album of previous Stuart-Nechako Reunions. For 19 years Okanangan residents who used to live in the Stuart-Nechako have been gathering every second year in Summerland

19 years later, reunion still going strong

A semi-annual reunion continues to gather past residents of the Fort St. James and Vanderhoof areas who now live in the Okanagan.

There are many former residents of the Vanderhoof and Fort St. James area of B.C. who are now living in the Okanagan.

Nineteen years ago, a few of us decided it might be fun to see how many other re-located folks like us old like to get together, and we started the Stuart-Nechako Reunion.

We contacted as many people as we could, and asked them to contact others they  might know, and we ended up with over 100 people.

They came from Osoyoos to Kamloops, Merritt to Lumby, and points in between.

We also got people from Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland who had hear of our event.

We have been holding this event every second year since, always at the Research tation Ornamental Gardens in Summerland, and are always thrilled to see our old friends and neighbours who have also moved to our part of B.C.. There are more and more each time.

This year we are continuing the “In Memory” album to honour those people who have attended reunions in the past and who have passed away since the beginning of the reunions.

We would like to have a picture of the person and the year of passing. For further information regarding the album, please call me at the number noted below.

There are always those whom we have been unable to contact, however, and would like to invite them to this year’s reunion to be held Sunday, September 9 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m..

Bring a picnic lunch and a lawn chair, if desired. Coffee, tea, juice and limited seating will be provided.
