As part of the Centennial celebrations, over 300 individuals were given this distinction over the weekend.

One of those individuals was a special guest by the name of Century Sid, who takes his name from the legendary Sid Williams.

Sid touches on the hard work by the Courtenay centennial committee.

There’s still plenty of festivities set to go this summer marking the city of Courtenay’s 100th anniversary.
