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.




 Meetings:

Despite the pandemic,  the KNC Board has continued to hold virtual monthly meetings on Zoom.  

Kelowna Mayor Colin Basran will be the guest speaker at our next meeting on April 15th.
