History

The Silver Star Chapter of the IODE was formed in 1954 by former Chrysler Chaper members Alice Kinnard and Estelle Fitzmaurice at a point when when the Chrysler Chapter was facing the prospect of disbanding. The Silver Star Chapter mainly undertook educational work by providing supplies and equipment to isolated schools in Labrador and Northern B.C. and by funding several bursaries for highschool and college students. The chapter also supported other charities and causes locally and internationally. They donated supplies to nursing stations in Northern Canada and glasses to people in developing countries, and locally in Vernon they supported the Upper Room Mission, various senior's programs, and ran the Baby Think It Over program (a program that taught teens about infant care). The Silver Star Chapter disbanded in 2008, at which time they donated $35,000 to various organizations in order to close out their accounts.
