YLW Connection Summer 2016


Beach weather, festivals galore and the boats on the water are clear indications of summer in the Okanagan. 

Friends and relatives are arriving by the plane load to soak up some sun, so be sure to pick up your copy of  the YLW Connection while you’re at the airport or click here.

In this edition:

Craft beer in wine country

The ever growing popularity of craft beer production is evident from every corner of the Okanagan. Several breweries are featured in this edition of the YLW Connection.

The uplifting experience of gliding

Publisher Sylvia Hermans shares her experience as she was treated to a flight 8,000 feet over the Okanagan valley with owner and pilot Richard Visscher in his self-launching sailplane. 

And much more….
