To the editor:
I had the pleasure of chatting with a spunky 91-year-old the other day. She told a few stories of Kelowna “in the old days” and mentioned that her dad was the mayor when the Okanagan Bridge was opened (1958). His name was Mr. Hughes-Games.
Although born in Kelowna, I had to admit I was not familiar with his name.
An idea: In Stuart Park, a park we named after one of our mayors, could we do small plaques for each mayor who has helped shape our city since 1905? Would there be room to mention one or two of each mayor’s accomplishments during their term in office?
It would be an interesting addition to our city’s history.
