AKBLG convention a great success

More than 200 delegates spend a few days getting to know Kimberley

Last week the City of Kimberley hosted the Association of Kootenay Boundary Municipalities annual convention at the Kimberley Conference and Athlete Training Centre. Over 200 people attended.

“It went really well,” said Mayor Don McCormick. “The organizing committee and the AKBLG executive  were really happy with the conference.”

Both the SunMine tour and the tour of the Mark Creek rehab tour were very well received.

“It’s interesting,” McCormick said. “The SunMine is always well received but Mark Creek got a whole lot of attention because of the radical change in the downtown. I think we don’t see it because it’s evolved over four years, but if you haven’t been in Kimberley for a while, it’s a radical transformation.”
