Message from the Director: What does “Strong, Proud and Free” mean to you? Throughout 2017, Canadians will have the opportunity to explore those words through a variety of local, regional, provincial and national Canada 150 celebrations. Many Peachland organizations and groups are already planning on highlighting Canada 150 through their annual celebrations as well as creating new and fun activities to bring families and communities together. Canada Day will be a highlight but there are also other initiatives such as the Visitors Centre Scavenger Hunt, Canada 150 Tulips, Art in the Park, and the new Pickleball Courts and Tennis Court refurbishing which will happen late spring/early summer. Watch for a variety of ways in 2017 to celebrate being Canadian.
