Peter Lepold, who has created about 45 different stamps through a program offered by Canada Post, has designed a special stamp for the 110 birthday of Westbank.
The Rutland retiree has made a stamp commemorating the 110th anniversary of Westbank in time for the event next Saturday.
"It's just a fun thing to do, and a nice little memento for the anniversary," Lepold said Friday of his newest stamp design, which depicts a cherry orchard, a view of the lake, and the letters BC with a heart around them.
Leopold has created about 45 different stamps through a program offered by Canada Post. Previous ones have celebrated Ogopogo, Father Pandosy, the Summerland steam railway, Armstrong's centennial and the Benvoulin Heritage Church.
He's also done stamps for friends and family and one showing his dog, Max.
People can submit a photo, original artwork or other kind of image for the Canada Post stamp-making program. The Crown corporation reserves the right to refuse any submitted image, however, and it doesn't have to provide a reason for the rejection.
Costs vary based on the number of stamps a person orders. Two stamps cost $4, and 100 stamps can be made for less than $150.
The Westbank centennial stamp is available at the Westbank museum, located between the northbound and southbound Highway 97 lanes, and at the Westbank farmer's market, which takes place every Saturday morning at the Lions Hall.
