Carnival AGM moved due to flood

Vernon Winter Carnival society has water in basement; AGM moved to hotel

Flooding has forced a venue change for the Vernon Winter Carnival Society’s annual general meeting.

The event will take place Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Express (4716-34th Street).

“The carnival office basement is flooded, so the executive made a decision that we felt was best for the membership to move the AGM,” said Carnival chairperson Deb White.

“We hope all our members come out and even if you aren’t a member but want to learn more about Vernon Winter Carnival, we invite you to attend.”

The AGM will cover the success of 2017 Vernon Winter Carnival as well as board of directors election.
