The committee is seeking images from 1965 until the present.

Some examples of subjects include early Downtown Market Days (started in 1974), the opening of Puntledge Park, the BC Lions training camp held at Lewis Park, school openings or pictures of schools in the early years, notable businesses, sporting events such as BC Summer/Winter Games, former or new landmarks, arts festivals, scattered skits, farmers market, recreation, community traditions, and photos from the last few years that the train was running. Submit photos by Dec. 21.

Please bring photos to Courtenay City Hall at 830 Cliffe Ave. Write your name and phone number on photos or envelope so they can be returned. Photos can also be emailed at planning@courtenay.ca.
