Lake Country, British Columbia
Phyllis is a retired RN who was born in the Okanagan and has returned there following my husband, Tom’s, retirement. They are active community members and volunteer for a number of organizations. They first began supporting the Okanagan Rail Trail when they helped to raise 7.8 million dollars to construct the trail from the abandoned 52 km (32.3 miles) rail line between Vernon and Kelowna, BC. Phyllis keeps active by walking, bike riding, playing pickleball, and kayaking. She has enjoyed biking on many trails in BC, PEI, northern Washington, and Idaho.
