Banner year for White Rock pier
Banners celebrating the 100th anniversary of the White Rock pier will soon adorn each of the city’s business districts.
Featuring an historical photo of the pier and the phrase ‘Celebrating 100 Years’, the banners are an initiative of the White Rock Business Improvement Association.
Executive director Lyn Hellyar was to share details of the program with White Rock council Monday evening, after Peace Arch News’ press deadline.
She told PAN last week that the pier’s milestone anniversary was one the BIA couldn’t simply let pass by.
“The BIA thought, we should be celebrating this,” Hellyar said.
“We really felt that we needed to celebrate the pier because it’s something really special.”
The banners are funded by the BIA and are scheduled to be hung by the City of White Rock starting May 1.
Hellyar said a comprehensive banner program is being developed for the city, and discussions around what will be hung a year from now are already underway.
