Official Leaside 100 party on April 23

You’ll soon be seeing the Leaside One Hundred logo all around town as events start being planned for next year’s centenary celebrations.

Free logo artwork will be provided all next year for local sports teams, clubs, music schools, art shows, etc., to be used on letterheads, for cresting, signage or whatever is needed.

The official anniversary date is Tuesday, April 23 with a gala event being planned for the following Saturday. There will also be a family-oriented outdoor summer fete.

Community organizations are being encouraged to come up with ideas and individuals can do so too. Search Leaside One Hundred on Facebook for suggestions.

Schools, private and public, are being asked to join in the fun. There is a Leaside One Hundred Spelling Bee planned. The Leaside Library will have special events, and keep your eye out for heritage plaques.

The One Hundred committee is hoping businesses and merchants will organize a street festival.
