Mayor’s Sesquicentennial Task Force

Canada’s 150th Birthday is coming up fast.  At the March Council Meeting, the Village of Westport established the Mayor’s Sesquicentennial Task Force.  The purpose of this committee is to encourage and coordinate activities throughout 2017 in celebration of our 150th Birthday as a Nation.
I will be hosting a plenary meeting at the Lions Beach House on Tuesday, May 24 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. for volunteer organizations, businesses, churches and committees of Council – and anyone who wants to help out.  Please bring your ideas of what we can do as a whole village or as individuals/groups next year.  We will determine next steps based upon our discussions on the 24th.
Many of us remember 1967 – our Centennial Year … when we sang ….:
CA-NA-DA
We love thee
CA-NA-DA
Proud and free
(Chorus):
North south east west
There’ll be happy times,
Church Bells will ring, ring, ring
It’s the hundredth anniversary of
Confederation
Ev’rybody sing together!
CA-NA-DA
We love thee
CA-NA-DA
Proud and free
Now that you have that tune playing in your head, let’s think about what we can do in the Village to celebrate the Sesquicentennial in a BIG, CANADIAN WAY!
 
Mary Anne Bishop has volunteered to help with this task force.  Many thanks!
