Put your mark on Esquimalt before centennial year

Putting your stamp on Esquimalt is as simple as purchasing a paving brick for the township’s Centennial Memorial Walkway Project

Putting your stamp on Esquimalt is as simple as purchasing a paving brick for the township’s Centennial Memorial Walkway Project.

The engraved pavers, which will form a path at Memorial Park, will mark the community’s 100th year in 2012 as an incorporated township.

To date, 185 of 600 available bricks, which each cost $100 or $200, have been sold, Janet Jones, chair of the centennial celebrations committee, told council Monday night.

Proceeds from the sale of the stones and centennial banners, hats, pins, vests and tea, will help fund the year-long celebration planned for 2012. At least one event a month will be held, Jones said. The highlight will be a big party Sept. 8.
