Cherry Lane turning stories into storeys

An initiative put on by the Cherry Lane Shopping Centre is asking for stories to assist the Penticton Hospital Tower project.

The Cherry Lane Shopping Centre is building storeys with stories with their new initiative to assist the South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation with the Penticton Hospital Tower project.

The Stories Building Storeys campaign launched on Sept. 15 at the Cherry Lane Shopping Centre and is showcasing  the South Okanagan’s community members and their inspired stories showing to how the Penticton Hospital relates to them, their loved ones, friends, neighbours, workplaces and businesses.

“Chat heads” are available at the Cherry Lane Shopping Centre for the community to fill out with their stories and will be displayed at the shopping centre for the next five years.

Each head will display the first name of the person, plus a short one or two-line story about how the hospital relates to themselves or their friends and loved ones.

Information is on hand at the shopping centre at the centre court, in the administration office and on Cherry Lane’s website at There you can find out how to be a part of the story boards through the shopping centre.

Cherry lane is also offering the interior of the shopping centre as the display area for the South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation to showcase the community donors who have provided funds for this initiative.

Cherry Lane is inviting the entire South Okanagan community to visit the shopping centre and be a part of the Stories Building Storeys campaign. The goal is to create visual awareness in the community.
