At Sparkling Hill Resort and Spa
" The evening sparkled amidst the 3.5 million Swarovski crystals that decorate the resort and the fresh snowfall "
The anticipation of the inaugural Chapitre in the newly formed Bailliage of Val d’Okanagan became increasingly more intense as the day arrived.
The Okanagan Valley had its first major snowstorm of the year on the morning of the 4th, causing delays in arrivals at the airport for many of the principal officials officiating at the Induction Ceremony.
Thank you to Bailli Délégué Tony Catonese, who is a Member of the Conseil Magistral, and Bailli Provincial Jane Ruddick who presided over the Induction Ceremony. The induction of four highly qualified Board Members will ensure the Bailliage thrives.
Ten years ago, just before the former Bailliage dissolved, the last Chapitre was held at Sparkling Hill Resort and Spa.
Now a decade on, our host, Hans-Peter Mayr, the Resort’s General Manager, made sure the Induction Ceremony ran smoothly and that dinner exceeded the everyone’s expectations.
Chef John Stratton created an outstanding menu with wine pairings from the Okanagan Valley. The wait staff performed an impeccable service.
Many attending took the opportunity to stay overnight and take advantage of the spa facilities. The evening sparkled amidst the 3.5 million Swarovski crystals that decorate the resort and the fresh snowfall.
