Centennial celebrations begin New Year’s Eve

“Memories are Made of This” event will be an unforgettable evening

The new year is just a few weeks away, and all the exciting centennial events start with a fantastic 2015 New Year celebration.

Make your plans now to dance through the decades on New Year’s eve at the Filberg Centre on Dec. 31.

Sponsored by Vancouver Island InsuranceCentres, the “Memories are Made of This” event will be an unforgettable evening to share with friends, featuring live music by Fiddle Jam, Ralph Barrat Jazz Ensemble, Kenny Shaw and Brian Temple and the Do Wops, Wendy Nixon Stothert and Swing Set, Comedy Acts, Edwin Grieve and Friends, followed by dancing with Dukes Band.

Enjoy complimentary gourmet appies, desserts and champagne at midnight. Tables for 8-10 people are available, or come on your own and you will be seated with some new folks wishing to share a fun evening. Get your tickets at the Sid Williams Theatre box office or through their website, just $50 each with a no host bar available.

On New Year’s Day, bring the family down to the Filberg Centre to share a traditional pancake breakfast from 10 a.m. – noon. Tickets to this Courtenay Centennial Birthday Celebration are free and available in advance at the Courtenay Recreation- Lewis Centre and Filberg Centre.

Space is limited, so stop down to pick up your tickets starting Dec. 8. Each person can reserve up to four tickets, and admission to the pancake breakfast requires presenting the ticket and making a cash or food donation to the Comox Valley Food Bank.

After breakfast from 12-1 p.m., the official launch celebrations begin with K’omoks First Nation blessing, light entertainment, official proclamation, and announcements of the events for the year with birthday cake and refreshments.

Tickets are not required for this part of the event so everyone is welcome to celebrate Courtenay’s official birthday.
