SIDNEY — Former Town of Sidney councillor and current Town Crier Kenny Podmore is heading up a new committee to celebrate not only Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, but also the Town’s 50th anniversary of incorporation as a municipality.
Podmore, who is the Town’s anniversary events co-ordinator, presented tentative plans for next summer. They include a street party, children’s carnival and a bigger, brighter Sidney Days and Canada Day celebration.
The Town’s 50th will be officially marked on January 1, 2017 — the actual date of incorporation — with an afternoon tea for residents at the Mary Winspear Centre.
If organizations would like to be involved with either anniversary, contact Podmore at 250-655-4631 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
