Great entertainment, great food, great volunteers, great crafts, great activities – and perfect weather!
That’s the recipe for a successful Alexandra Festival.
And what a day it was. The 38th annual was the biggest and best ever and, as usual, holding this.
We extend a warm thank you to event sponsors Citizenship and Immigration Canada, Remax, the Peace Arch News and MD Scaffolding.
Many thanks also to Crescent Beach Legion 240, White Rock Blues Society, Washington Avenue Grill, Q Sound, Pro Safe Traffic Services, Starbucks Ocean Park, Surrey Public Library, South Surrey RCMP, Crescent Beach Pipers and of course, many, many thanks to the more than 60 volunteers who helped us put on this popular, annual community event.
The Alexandra Festival is a great example of community working together.
• Help us create the image to be used to promote next year’s Alexandra Festival.
We’re looking for a design that celebrates an open and inclusive community while reflecting our diverse neighbourhood.
Grab a T-shirt outline (available at our office or at any of our summer activities), or use a blank piece of paper to show us what Alex Fest means to you.
Submissions for both the poster and the shirt will be accepted at 2916 McBride Ave. until July 31.
The winning design will be reproduced on the poster and T-shirt to celebrate Alex Fest in 2013, and the winning designer will receive a $100 gift card.
All ages welcome. Questions? Call 604-535-0015, ext. 237.
• Our summer campers will be arriving soon for their annual stay by the seaside, and we have started to welcome our summer camp counsellors. Several are returning this year and it is testament to the spirit of camps that we continue to have such a remarkable group of young people in our midst.
• With almost 100 years in Crescent Beach providing camps for children and families, we are excited to offer our second year of beachside play away day camps for our local kids.
Join us for words at play, ooey-gooey art, create, innovate, eco kids and more. Call 604-535-0015, ext. 229 for more.
