Thank you 

Council and staff of the Township of Spallumcheen would like to thank the staff of the Okanagan Advertiser for their many years of dedicated service to our community.  The loss of this local paper will be felt by many, which is a testament to the quality and value of the Advertiser. We wish you all the best as you embark into the next chapter of your lives. 

For our residents who rely on the information shared in the Advertiser, the Township is looking at different options to ensure you stay informed about news from Spallumcheen. Currently you can get updates at Council meetings, on our website, through open houses, Coffee with the Mayor sessions and Round Table meetings as well as in the form of bill stuffers and information posted at the Municipal Hall.
