Centennial celebrations for West Vancouver announced
Save the date: The community will be treated to cupcakes and roving characters from West Vancouver's history at the municipality's 100th birthday party at the West Vancouver Memorial Library on March 15th.
"This is really a kids' celebration," said District of West Vancouver communications director, Jessica Delaney, of the event which falls during spring break.
West Vancouver's actual day of incorporation will also be marked with a 100-minute story time, face painting, musical performances, a light lunch — and the launch of the library's digital collection of historical photographs. Acting West Vancouver Mayor Craig Cameron will be on hand to fete the big day.
The afternoon event, which runs from 12 - 4 p.m., will whet West Vancouver's appetite for a larger celebration on June 2nd: an "amped up" Community Day with entertainment hot spots stretching from Horseshoe Bay to Ambleside all day long.
Delaney can't promise fireworks, just yet, but says there are some "big surprises" in store for June 2nd.
