The 2016 Vernon and District Heritage Fair was held on Friday April 8th at the Schubert Centre.  The fair was a great success, with 40 students presenting their projects
depicting Canadian events and people, both past and present.
The students from grades 4-7 not only put hard work into their displays, but also explained the project to judges who assessed their endeavours.  As well, they participated
in a variety of heritage activities such as felting, playing old fashioned games and participating in the downtown mural tours.
All students did exceptional work and earned their place at this Heritage Fair through school fairs.  Twenty nine students were invited to go onto the Okanagan Regional
Heritage Fair to be held in Kelowna April 27 and 28th.
The organizing committee for the fair would like to thank the volunteers who assisted with the presentation of the Fair and the sponsors who helped make the fair happen.
The sponsors of the Fair include the RDNO, Davidson Pringle Lawyers, Kal Tire, Vernon Rotary Club, Alpine Centre Bookwarehouse, Canadian Federation of
 University Women, Vernon Teachers Association, SunRype and the Okanagan Historical Society.
The 2016 Vernon & District Heritage Fair is a project of the North Okanagan Optimist Club. For more information and photos of the Fair please visit
