Special thanks to the many hard working Board of Directors and volunteers involved in making OLWQS’s successful presence at the 73rd Annual Cherry Festival parade through the downtown streets of Osoyoos and at the OLWQS booth at Gyro Park.  

Kudos to all who made time to promote our organization and the work we perform annually to protect and keep our Osoyoos Lake beautiful so that future generations can enjoy its numerous benefits including swimming, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, paddleboarding, observing wildlife, sport fishing and many other activities.
