Enderby celebrates heritage

A federal grant will allow Enderby to install 22 banners that celebrate the community’s heritage and its relationship with the Splatsin

Beautification is moving ahead in Enderby.

A federal grant will allow Enderby to install 22 banners that celebrate the community’s heritage and its relationship with the Splatsin.

“The City of Enderby would like to thank the government of Canada for its support in funding part of this project,” said Mayor Greg McCune.

The heritage-style banners will be installed throughout Enderby’s commercial area including Cliff Avenue, Vernon Street and George Street. Students from M.V. Beattie Elementary School, Shihiya School and A.L. Fortune Secondary School are being invited to submit designs that a graphic designer will use as inspiration to develop a preferred design and layout for the banners. All students who submit a design will be entered into a draw for one of two $50 gift certificates to a local Enderby business of their choosing.

“We are excited to get our youth involved in helping to develop a design for the banners that celebrates what Enderby is all about,” said McCune

“A graphic designer will use the design submissions from the students as inspiration in developing a series of banner design options. We will then present these banner design options back to the community and let our residents tell us which one they would like to see us go with. It should be a lot of fun.”
