Coalmont celebrates its Centennial with a reunion and lots of fun this July 9

It’s party time in Coalmont. Not only will we be celebrating our 100 years of survival, but the Blakeburn reunion will be incorporated. It will be a day of reminiscing and catching up with old friends.

Starting at noon, we’ll have a BBQ going. At 4:30 we will have a roast beef dinner for Coalmont residents, Blakeburn Reunion members, and all our guests. We’ll have a tent set up. This is all made possible thanks to the generous sponsorship of Coalmont Energy Corporation who are our new

neighbours and will be developing the coal mine over the next few years. If you have any questions about their operation, there will be a representative present at the party.

Coalmontians are all adding their bit here. Especially Lillian Young who organizes the Blakeburn Reunion every year. Musicians are invited to bring instruments and play anytime. We also encourage and welcome any other festival contributions. Ideas and questions in that regard can be sent to party@coalmontcentennial.com

If you wish to reserve your dinner, please RSVP to Lillian Young at 604-826-3582, or send an email to dinner@coalmontcentennial.com Dinner and BBQ is by donation and all proceeds will go to the Tulameen Fire Department.
