125th Birthday Party
The City of Vernon and Downtown Vernon Association will be hosting a free barbecue today ( Thursday, August 10th) to celebrate the city's 125th birthday. City councillors will be working the grill and handing out birthday cake from 5pm - 8 p.m. at the Civic Plaza in front of City Hall.
"To me, celebrating Vernon's 125th birthday is a way of recognizing that we live in a special place, with a special history, that has evolved over time into a tremendous, family friendly city," said Vernon Councillor Catherine Lord, who is helping to organize the event."I love this town, with its mountains, parks, lakes and most of all, its generous people."
