It’s not taken Vince long to understand what Okanagan lifestyle means. Since November 2014, “Vinny”, his wife, and two daughters have embraced the skating, hiking, biking, golfing, tennis, water and beach activities that this breathtaking valley has to offer. They’ve met wonderful people, and have embraced their community.
