SENIORS’ SCENE: It’s time to celebrate 60 years

Seniors Diamond Anniversary luncheon set for April 15

Here is another White Rock trivia question as we get closer to celebrating the city’s 60th birthday.

What year was White Rock’s City Hall built?

If you guessed 1963 then you are correct!

White Rock will be 60 years old on Saturday, April 15. To recognize this very special birthday, we are having a Seniors Diamond Anniversary Luncheon from noon to 2 p.m. in the Centre for Active Living.

Enjoy a delicious catered lunch by Rustic Gourmet, fabulous musical entertainment, a video presentation of White Rock the early years… and much more!

If you would like to attend this gala luncheon, please call 604-541-2199, drop into any White Rock Recreation Centre or go online to

Cost is only $10 per person.
