NEW Late Night at the Archives!

On Thursday, Feb 15 and Thurs, Mar 14 we will be staying open until 8pm!

This is a trial run, in an attempt to better serve the community by offering more convenient hours to those who work regular shift work.

So if you’ve been interested in coming down to the Archives but haven’t found the time, we’d love to see you!

Now Accepting Card Payments

The Arrow Lakes Historical Society, thanks to the local community and the CBT, have recently purchased a terminal that allows us to accept card payments.

With most of the grants in the province geared towards projects, selling our books on local history fills a large void when it comes to paying for our day-to-day operational costs. The convenience to customers of card payments at the farmer’s markets and other events will have a marked impact on the ALHS’s ability to continue to preserve our local history.

We are grateful to everyone who came out and showed support at the CBT REDI Grant Voting.

Thanks to NACFOR

The Arrow Lakes Historical Society is grateful to the Nakusp and Area Community Forest (NACFOR) for their generous support of our project to create and use a computer network in our archives office. Pictured, consultant Ron Nymeyer supervises society volunteer trainees Caroline Huyter and Kathy Bone on use of the new computer network in the office.
