Exactly two years ago, May 16, 2017, a wonderful man, Nelson Meikle passed.
He was a man intent on learning how to make this community a better place to live in.
One particular passion was his effort in 2015 to save Skaha Lake Park, its green space and water. What would Skaha Park look like today, had it not been for this supremely dedicated man who unselfishly fought, to his dying day to preserve our beautiful Skaha Lake Park for the future for his grandsons and for all our grandsons?
This is my impromptu and short notice idea, but I would like to invite others who remember Nelson to join me at his bench which is about midway along the beach promenade, this Saturday, May 18 at 11 a.m. Those who cannot make it that day could find some other way or time to express their appreciation. One way, send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org
