The O’Keefe Ranch will hold a free family event Sunday to commemorate the Township of Spallumcheen’s 125th anniversary.
The event takes place from 10 am to 5 pm.
“There will be activities for children like a ring toss, stilts, egg and spoon race, potato race and roping calf dummies,” said Spallumcheen Councillor Christine LeMaire. “There will also be stagecoach and pony rides available.”
Mayor Janice Brown will give a speech at 1, followed by the cutting of birthday cake, and music from “The Goods,” of which councillor Todd York is a member
There will also be gift baskets to be won, as well as promotional items celebrating the 125th anniversary being handed out.
Spallumcheen farmers will be on hand from 11 am to 1 pm.
“A $5 voucher will be available to Spallumcheen residents who provide proof of residency such as a copy of your tax notice or driver’s licence to use at a local farm of choice,” says Councillor LeMaire.
“You will be required to visit one of the farmer booths in attendance where you’d like to use the voucher to have them sign it for it to be accepted at a later date.”
