Picture perfect at Evely Rec Beach. Did you know that this beautiful spot was named in honour of the late Glen Evely to pay tribute to his commitment to public service. The site was chosen for its natural beauty and proximity to Vernon. Evely, a 12-year employee of the Forest Service, was killed in a car crash near Vernon in 2004. He was serving as a volunteer RCMP officer when a stolen vehicle hit the cruiser he was travelling in. Photo courtesy of Sue Cseh-Galbraith. August 24, 2020.
