We are pleased to announce that the next installment of photographs from Sicamous and District Museum and Historical Society has recently been made public.
The Greenwood Women’s Institute fonds is now available on the repository! The Greenwood Women's Institute, originally called Boundary District Women's Institute, was formed around 1912. Materials that are available on our repository include Women’s Institute meeting minutes as well as a membership book and ephemera, ranging from 1938 to 1988. We would like to thank the Greenwood Museum for collaborating with the Digitized Okanagan History Project, and allowing us to make these materials available on the DOH platform.
