SIDNEY — If you’ve enjoyed the annual Canada Day parade, summer concerts or the exciting build-a-boat race and have a bit of time to spare, the Peninsula Celebrations Society would like you to consider joining their fun group of organizers.

The Peninsula Celebrations Society is holding its Annual General Meeting at the Mary Winspear Centre at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 28.

The society is the group of volunteers who help organize annual events including the Polar Bear Swim, the Easter Egg Hunt, the Sidney Days Canada Day celebrations and parade, the Summer Sounds concerts and the Sidney Sparkles Christmas Parade and Sailpast.
