Summer 2020 Community Newsletter

Servicing for phase 3 has begun. A few lots remain in phase 2.

Units in the first building are at or nearing completion. Look for the start of building two in the near future.

There has been serious interest in the Village Centre parcels. We hope to announce new development in this area in the near future.
You will be receiving an email asking you to complete a survey on a potential seniors residence. This survey is on behalf of a developer investigating the feasibility of such a facility in the Village Centre. If you are interested in providing input into this development, please complete the survey.
Sun Rivers is sorry to advise that we have lost one of Sun Rivers early pioneers, Harry Davis.  Harry passed away August 6th after a courageous battle with cancer.  
Harry and Linda were among the first residents of Sun Rivers and the first members of the golf course. Their enthusiasm with the golf resort lifestyle found them actively initiating and participating in community, neighbourhood and golf events and other activities for the betterment of the community. 
Not only were they among the first homeowners and golf course members but Harry was the first Neighbourhood President in Sun Rivers. He enthusiastically took on the responsibility and served for many years in Sagewood and Golf Ridge. As more neighbourhoods came on stream Harry generously donated his time to support other Presidents and Directors taking on their new roles. 
Harry’s volunteer efforts were many and wide spread including community events as an organizer, driver, grill master or whatever job he was called on to perform.  Linda and Harry organized the ‘infamous’ McSagewood golf tournament – a sell out every year during its’ 15 year run. They were tireless in their efforts to provide an extraordinary experience for their neighbours and friends, preparing the meal, organizing the golf format, prizing and after golf party! 
Harry was also recognized as Sun Rivers volunteer of the year many years in a row.  Needless to say Harry was a tireless community supporter and volunteer whose presence and efforts contributed to making Sun Rivers a better community for all.
Harry and Linda have made many friends among Sun Rivers residents and staff. Harry will be sorely missed for his friendship, kindness and generosity. 
A memorial bench will be erected to honour Harry’s memory. If you wish to contribute to the Bench in Harry’s name please contact Leslie Brochu,  

We have our survey results, with the majority of Sun Rivers residents in favour of constructing a playground.

To move forward, we are looking for 5 or 6 volunteers to assist with the planning of the playground, including confirming the location and determining what facilities will be included.

If you are interested in joining this committee, please email your contact info to, indicating you would like to volunteer for our playground committee.

Food Bank Drive
Our annual Food Bank Drive on August brought in 1,770 lbs. of food and $1,215 in cash donations. The Kamloops Food Bank was most appreciative of Sun Rivers' continued support.

Upcoming Events
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing rules, our Community Fair and Garage Sale were cancelled for this year. It does not look like we will be able to hold our annual Directors Update, normally scheduled for October, nor the Resident Social held annually in December. We will continue to monitor the situation and will bring back these events when it is safe to do so.
