Vanderhoof reunion in Okanagon

11th semi-annual reunion for Vanderhoof people living in Okanagan

...annual reunion of former residents of the Vanderhoof and Fort St. James area who now reside in the Okanagan.

People came from up and down the Okanagan Valley with two coming from Vancouver Island for the annual reunion of former residents of the Vanderhoof and Fort St. James area who now reside in the Okanagan.

Nineteen years ago, a few people decided it might be fun to see how many other re-located folks like them would like to get together, and they started the Stuart-Nechako Reunion, meeting every other year.

They contacted as many people as they could, and asked them to contact others they might know, this year they ended up with 61 in total.

The Stuart-Nechako reunion group have been holding this event every second year since, always at the Research Station Ornamental Gardens in Summerland, and are always thrilled to see old friends and neighbours who have also moved to their part of B.C. There are more and more each time.

This year they continued 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.
