Water, film "A River Film" and timbering
Friday, April 20 07:00 PM
The Okanagan Similkameen Parks Society (OSPS) announces the invitation to its annual general meeting (AGM) on Friday, April 20th at 7pm in The Centre Stage Theatre, next to Summerland Secondary School, at 9507 Main Street.
This year’s main topic is water. The prestigious international award-winning “A River Film” about the Okanagan Basin will be presented. The film is a documentary about the trans-boundary challenge of managing Osoyoos Lake, and the uses and needs of residents and ecosystems along the lake and the Okanagan River. Displays dealing with timbering, as a critical aspect of hydrology, will also be available.
The AGM will begin with a short meeting, where the financial statements for the prior year will be presented for approval, and where the 2018 Board of Directors will be elected. The AGM is open to the public free of charge, but donations are welcome.
