The veteran street signs are going up in the city.

As a member of the Kamloops Heritage Commission, I want to thank everyone who helped get our project approved. To date, $9,500 has been raised and presented to city council, with still more to be collected.

Our donors include the Vicars and Clapperton families. The K40 Club of Kamloops also contributed to our project. Our business donors include Valley First Credit Union, Mattress King, Central Salvage, Integra Tire on Leigh Street, Fountain Tire in Tk’emlups and Jeremy Reid from ReMax Realty.

As well, we had donations from the International Union of Operating Engineers. Included in my gratitude are the amazing citizens of Kamloops who have “liked” our comments on social media and others who have supported us in various ways.

I would like to give a special thank you to the Boy Scouts. Their leadership donated funds and organized a bottle drive that raised $1,100.

We are still accepting donations.

Anyone interested in assisting in our Kamloops Veterans Street Signs Project can contact me by email at kamloops cenotaph@gmail.com
