Happy 150th Birthday Canada – Come celebrate with us

Last May, a Mayor’s Task Force was formed to plan events to celebrate Canada’s Sesquicentennial .  Any member of the public was invited to participate and the team has put together a fabulous variety of events that cover the whole year!

The birthday party  begins on January 1st with the Mayor’s New Year’s Levee at Town Hall.  Lots of food, friends and fun.  It all begins at noon and runs until 2:00 p.m.  Both MP Gord Brown and MPP Steve Clarke are joining us for the levee.  Special Surprise?  Raising our new Westport Sesquicentennial Flag.

And on Sunday, January 15, you can join Sir John A MacDonald and Lady Agnes for tea and hear what our Founder has to say about Confederation when he gives one of his historic speeches.  Meet Sir John A at the Legion between 2 and 4:00 p.m.  Free will offering.

February birthday events are being finalized and will offer lots of winter fun.
