While the town may be 102 this year, there are plenty still hoping to celebrate the town’s centennial birthday in 2022.
After COVID-19 derailed any plans that were in place over the last two years, talks are beginning at the Centennial Committee level to gauge interest in hosting an event this summer.
“We met and the goal was to spend the grant money by March 31. Our goal was to find, by the end of March, interested user groups who are participating and volunteering and maybe wanting to do some fundraising — just to know if it’s worthwhile to carry on. If there is a lack of interest, then do we just forgo the grant? Trevor Panczak has been paid, do we just pay the rest of his fee and have a concert Saturday night? Whoever comes, comes — that is the committee’s goal,” explained Deputy Mayor Kim Cawley. “The goal is to host an event on Saturday, July 2 because that is the day we have Trevor Panczak booked for. We will need volunteers and groups that want to help out in some way. If there is no interest, maybe the Ag Society just does Canada Day and that is it.”
