‘Flower Talk and Dessert Buffet’ scheduled for Feb. 4

BYEMOOR/ENDIANG NEWS -- The year 2017 marks the 150th anniversary of Confederation in Canada. Have you got plans to celebrate Canada 150?

BYEMOOR/ENDIANG NEWS — The year 2017 marks the 150th anniversary of Confederation in Canada. Have you got plans to celebrate Canada 150, as it is being called? In 1967, many communities and individuals undertook and completed centennial projects to mark Canada’s 100th anniversary.

This year would be a good year to do something special — stroke something off your bucket list, see parts of Canada you’ve never visited, add or renew something in your community that will have lasting value that others can enjoy for years to come, maybe a special celebration event or perhaps you have a project in your home or yard you have been procrastinating about — the list is endless.

It’s still early in the year, so there is plenty of time to get on your Canada 150 projects. There are many ways to make lasting memories of this special year.
