SENIORS’ SCENE: Plant, bake sale April 22

Plenty to enjoy at Kent Street centre’s plant and bake sale

On Saturday, April 15, the City of White Rock will be turning 60 years old.

Here’s another trivia question as we celebrate this fabulous city: years before the coming of the railway to WhiteRock, a famous trail linked the Campbell River with Nicomekl and Serpentine rivers. What was the name of that trail?

If you guessed Semiahmoo Trail, you are correct!

To celebrate White Rock’s 60th birthday, a free community birthday party is set for Saturday, April 29, 11 a.m.to 9 p.m.

The whole family can enjoy live music, food trucks, clowns, magicians, kids activities and evening entertainment by Redeye Empire at 7 p.m. and Hey Ocean at 8 p.m. Free parking all day.

Visit www.whiterockcity/60 for more information.

The flowers are starting to bloom, the weather is getting a little warmer and we will soon be out in the garden.

Let Kent Street Activity Centre assist you in your gardening adventures with plants from the annual Plant andBake Sale.

Doors open at 9 a.m. on April 22, until noon. Delicious baking from the Kent Street kitchen will also be on sale.
