On behalf of Mayor Christine Fraser, Spallumcheen Council and staff, a very big Thank You to the quick efforts of the Armstrong Spallumcheen Fire Department staff and crews, as well as BC Wildfire Crews, and BX/Swan Lake, Lumby, and Vernon Fire Department crews for their efforts managing the Horseshoe Lake Fire that occurred on Friday, July 7, 2023 and continued to Saturday, July 15, 2023 in the Township of Spallumcheen north of the area know as Grandview Flats.  Included in appreciation is the Vernon/North Okanagan RCMP – Armstrong Detachment members who ensured that the residents in the area were notified of the alert.  Wildfires are definitely a challenge, and your efforts are appreciated and acknowledged.

The Township would also like to thank the Armstrong Askews Bake Shoppe, Canadian 2 for 1, the Anchor, JJ’s Pizza Plus, and Askews foods for being the vendors we could rely on to ensure that supplies could be provided to our fire crews and staff as they battled the blaze.  We appreciate being able to reach out to get the services we need to ensure that the teams were taken care of during their valiant efforts.  We live in an incredible community that makes the word “Team” part of why we are such a desirable place to live.


Christine Fraser, Mayor                                                                        Cindy Webb, Corporate Officer
