New Year's Eve bash will launch year-long birthday party in Courtenay

The City of Courtenay will kick off a year-long celebration of its 100th birthday next year with a New Year's Eve bash this Dec. 31 at the Native Sons Hall.

Former Courtenay mayor Ron Webber is chairing a committee that is planning a host of events. A Homecoming Week June 26 to July 5 will include a family barbecue, tailgate party and neighbourhood block parties.

"I want to thank you, Ron, for all the work you've done," said Mayor Larry Jangula, also acknowledging the efforts of Couns. Starr Winchester and Doug Hillian, who sit on the committee.

The committee has applied to Heritage Canada for operating funds, and requested $38,000 from the City. The latter is to plan and promote the Dec. 31 to Jan. 1 events. Part of the costs will help develop a centennial logo.
