Lake Country Museum & Archives’ Applebox Belles wins award as a Special Heritage Project

Next week, February 19th to 25th is Heritage Week in Canada.

The Lake Country Museum’s Community Stories on-line exhibition entitled: Applebox Belles, has been chosen to receive a COHS Heritage Award as a Special Heritage Project.  See below for the description:

Special Heritage Project:  To recognize and honour special projects and accomplishments in the Central Okanagan.  This may include advocacy, awareness and planning heritage and historical projects. The committee was very impressed with the exhibit and its story of the women in the packinghouses in Lake Country.  The connection of the people with the building and the story it tells, is very interesting and important.  The Heritage Award will be presented during Heritage Week at the COHS Heritage Awards Luncheon.

Wednesday, February 21st – Central Okanagan Society Heritage Awards Presentations and Luncheon, Benvoulin Church & Reid Hall, 12:00 am-2:00 pm. The COHS Annual Heritage Awards is in its 34th year and recognizes heritage conservation projects, compatible new construction, and those who have played a significant volunteer role in the field of heritage. Tickets $25. Please call 250-861-7188 or email

The Lake Country Museum & Archives would like to thank former manager, Shannon Jorgenson, for her superb leadership on this project.
