A partnership between the Kaslo InfoNet (KIN) Society and the Lardeau Valley Opportunity Links Society has been formed to share a website.

InfoNet has been running their lardeauvalley.com website for several years for those residents at the north end of the lake that receive their high-speed Internet service from the society.

However, as with many groups there are only so many hours in a day to get things done, so LINKS (Lardeau Valley Opportunity Links Society), a community group formed to help build capacity and assist local residents, offered to manage the website on behalf of both groups.

Along with many photos of local people and places which are being added to regularly, all the KIN info is still available. There is a ride board, a job board, a calendar of upcoming events, many of the businesses in the area are listed, and a page listing most of the groups which operate in the Lardeau Valley is also included.

The site now lists houses for rent or sale on the “where to stay, where to play” page for residents and visitors alike. New information, photos and pages will be added as the year long project of managing the website grows and expands .

Need to know something about the Lardeau Valley? Take a look at the site. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, or want to send them information or photos relevant to the site, just email links@lardeauvalley.com

Funding for this project comes from the Columbia Basin Trust and the Kaslo and District Community Forest.
