Donna Yoshitake Wuest book launch:  Coldstream: the ranch where it all began

I have actually walked through
the old Coldstream Ranch lands, because my girlfriend's parents' house
in Coldstream is on the edge of Kalamalka Lake Park, and we often walk
in the park.

She tells me that the NDP government
turned the old ranch into parkland in the late 1970's, saving it from
becoming a resort complex located at Cousins Bay, on Kalamalka Lake.

Here is a message from the Japanese Canadian National Museum:

We invite you to attend the upcoming book launch for “Coldstream: The
Ranch Where It All Began”, and to share this information with any
friends or colleagues who might be interested.

which was home to a tight-knit Japanese Canadian community at the time.
