The 150th anniversary of Historic O’Keefe Ranch in Vernon, B.C. has been commemorated on a Picture Postage stamp.
The stamp was designed by local collector and artist Peter Lepold, who’s also the publicity chair of the Kelowna and District Stamp Club (KDSC). It depicts the newly painted St. Anne Church, which is located on the same property as the ranch, which celebrated its big milestone last week.
Because the stamps were printed under Canada Post’s Picture Postage program, their availability is limited. To purchase a stamp, contact Lepold at firstname.lastname@example.org or the O’Keefe Ranch at 1-250-542-7868.
