Time is running out to get your registrations in for the upcoming centennial celebrations.
Anyone who plans to attend the celebrations, even if they aren’t taking part in the suppers, is urged to register in order to receive their registration packages, which will include a lanyard with the attendee’s name on it, a detailed outline of the centennial celebrations and a complete itinerary detailing the centennial event schedules, and a few other free goodies.
“It’s just so that we have an idea of how many people are going to be around on the weekend,” said Danean Karlunchuk.
Those who do wish to take part in any of the suppers need to register and prepay by June 1, as the caterers need to know how much food to prepare.
The Canada Day Committee is also still looking for anyone interested in taking part in the Centennial parade on July 1.
“Because it’s our centennial, we’re hoping to have a really huge parade with lots of floats,” said Danean Karlunchuk. “So it is important to get those registrations in.”
Registrations are open to individuals, businesses and organizations, and prizes will be awarded to the best float in each category.
The Canada Day Committee is also hoping that anyone with a centennial farm will join in the festivities. Anyone wishing to sign up for the parade can contact Sandra at 697-3234.
Opening ceremonies take place June 30 at the Grenfell Regional Park starting at 7 pm, featuring hay rides, fireworks, an ongoing wiener roast and a Grenfell Gems ball game at 8.
Participants are still being recruited for events such as street hockey, slow pitch and bed races.
