100 years for Nelson’s IODE

Mayor John Dooley dropped by the IODE thrift shop as the Kokanee Chapter celebrated its centennial.



The Kokanee Chapter of the IODE celebrated its centennial today. Mayor John Dooley dropped by the organization’s Baker Street thrift shop to help cut the cake. The first meeting to organize the local chapter was held in September 1914 and since then, the women’s charity has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local and national causes.
