Site Contributors and Thanks
The vision for SLOCANVALLEY.com was created and realized
by the Slocan Valley Economic Development Commission (SVEDC), a
valley-wide collection of government and citizen representatives.
SVEDC’s drive, initiative and synergy secured the funding
for the site build, and they are committed to keeping it a vibrant
contributor to our mountain community.
SLOCANVALLEY.com is owned and operated by the people and communities
in the Slocan Valley, and was developed with the advisement of over
50 community organisations and businesses.
The photographs on this site are donated by members of our community…most
notably Jack and Ella Amstutz. Jack
passed away in April 2004. Jack you are missed and remembered –
Your community thanks you for these wonderful memories of the valley.
