The Village of Salmo is honoured to receive two prestigious awards as the 2017 conference of the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM).

The first award was the BC Wood Council award for excellence in the use of lumber in municipal construction for the new 6th Street Pedestrian bridge opened on July 1st this year.

The second award, granted this morning, was the prestigious Community Excellence Award for Partnerships celebrating Salmo's new Heritage Hub Arts and Cultural corner located along the highway at Main Street. The arts and cultural corner features Village Art Windows (to feature the work of local artists), Village Art Garden and Heritage Hub Inc., a sister company to California based Heritage Salvage, now featured on the Do-It-Yourself. Heritage Hub salvaged old building materials and repurposes them into high quality furniture, fencing and wood-art. It also provides custom upholstery and tattoo artistry as well as local art apprenticeships.
