The funding came from the 2010 Sport and Arts Legacy, which was established after the Olympics to “carry on” the spirit of community celebration that was vital during the games.
“Art and culture continues to be an important part of life in Chetwynd,” says Mayor Merlin Nichols, “and this grant will support and showcase its artists and local talent as never before.”
Over the weekend Chetwynd was host to a chainsaw carving competition, a yard sale at the public library, museum tours, soccer and slo-pitch tournaments and a ball held at the Legion. Minister Chong was in Chetwynd for the celebration, and took part in the carving competition.
The fun’s not over yet, as monthly events will also be held throughout the summer.
The District of Chetwynd was incorporated in 1962, and was previously known as Little Prairie.
