The whole town’s invited to help cap a tremendous Centennial Year during the final event on the evening of Dec. 31st.

“We’ve had a pretty good year, very successful events,” said Centennial Celebrations chairperson Brenda Dale. “To wrap it all up the committee is hosting a family skating party at the old arena.”

“All families, young and old, are invited,” she said.

Midnight will be at 9 p.m. so families with young children can participate in the festivities and get home at a reasonable hour. The event runs from 6-10 p.m. and features crafts, entertainment, surprises and a chance to skate and visit.

It will also be the last time to taste Sylvan Lake’s Centennial birthday cake. “We’ve had lots of it this year,” quipped Dale.

Besides cake, your $5 family pass also includes hot dogs and hot chocolate.

A limited number of tickets are available at Sylvan Lake & Area Community Partners office, 4936 50th Avenue, so hurry to get yours and participate in the finale of a great year of celebration.
