Plans are kicking into high gear for a major 100th Birthday celebration for the City of Courtenay this year.

Rod Lewis speaks for the Courtenay Centennial Committee, and updated Courtenay City Council this week on Homecoming Week, set for June 26th to July 5th this coming summer.

Lewis says the committee is appealing for all Comox Valley residents, along with their family and friends, to gather in Courtenay for a series of free events, family activities, local music and food.

The Committee has been active in recent months getting out the word all over the country that Courtenay is about to throw one heck of a birthday party this summer.

The celebrations actually kicked off on New Year’s Eve with the huge, “Memories Are Made of This”, event followed up by the official 100th Birthday celebration on January 1st, 2015.

The Courtenay Centennial Committee is providing ongoing updates to Courtenay City Council on their various preparations for the summer time celebrations.
