KNC Activity Update
The 3 week "circuit breaker" style lockdown means that some of our activities, such as the Walking Group, are on hold at the present.
The new public health order is in effect until April 19th.
Other activities, such as Cooking with Friends, Photography and the Ladies Afternoon Book Club, will continue virtually via Zoom, with the target of resuming in-person gatherings as soon as regulations allow. Thank you for your continuing patience.
Despite the pandemic, the KNC Board has continued to hold virtual monthly meetings on Zoom.
Kelowna Mayor Colin Basran was our featured guest speaker April 15th. More details on his speech in our "What's New" section.
West Kelowna MLA Ben Stewart will be our next guest speaker at our general meeting May 20th. Mr. Stewart is also the founder and director of Quail's Gate Winery.
