Courtesy of the City of Quesnel:
As Chair of Canada Day/Canada 150 celebrations this year, just thought a quick update would be in order.
A group of community members have met several times to start formulating plans to help with our community celebrations of both Canada Day and Canada 150.
Throughout the year various organizations will be hosting events to recognize Canada’s 150th birthday. Our newly created Facebook page “Canada 150 Quesnel” will be one source of information for when these events take place.
The City of Quesnel will be launching its very own 150 Let’s get Active program. Through our Healthier Community Committee and a grant from Northern Health, we will be promoting an active lifestyles campaign. Passports will be provided to each participant and after logging 150 hours of activities, you turn the passports in for a specially designed Quesnel 150 pin. Passports will be available to participants starting at our launch May 5th which will be happening down at LeBourdais Park with an afternoon/evening event sponsored by ParticipACTION 150 playlist group. Stay tuned for more information on this event and other opportunities to try out new activities that will give you “bonus” credits on your passports.
If your organization has an event taking place this year to help celebrate Canada’s 150, please let me know so we can get the word out.
I encourage you to think about how YOU are going to get your 150 on!
