BC Tree Fruits special anniversary celebrated
Since 1936, the familiar B.C. Leaf sticker has been the world famous symbol for the majority of delicious tree fruits grown every year in the Okanagan—apples, cherries, pears, peaches, nectarines.
The 800 grower families members of B.C. Tree Fruits are proud of their heritage—one that began 75 years ago on July 21, 1936.
How did it all begin? Who planted the first seed? B.C. Tree Fruits will celebrate its juicy history at a special reception at the Laurel Packinghouse on Aug. 4.
The Kelowna Museum will co-host this very special occasion with a historical exhibit, along with speeches from a ew dignitaries and some tasty surprises.
The event takes place from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Laurel Packinghouse, 1304 Ellis St., in Kelowna’s Cultural District.
