Pierrefonds-Roxboro Mayor Jim Beis opened Roxboro district centennial celebrations, Feb. 1, with toast to all the volunteers who contributed to the planning of the full year lineup of activities.
He praised his predecessors who founded and built Roxboro with a vision of urban and economic development.
The opening ceremonies festivities included a historical photo display of archived photos, a barbecue, tire sur neige, sleigh rides and skating under the stars.
The upcoming year will be packed with events. Multicultural day at the end of March promises a wide range of culinary tastes provided by the local businesses.
July 1 will feature the annual Canada Day parade with dignitaries, police and firefighters and, in August, Roxboro Day will host a parade of antique cars, inflatables and street-hockey games.
Oyster day and a tribute to seniors in October will lead the Roxboro community to the closing ceremonies.
Happy 100th to Roxboro!
