Happy Birthday, Beaconsfield!

My husband and I have lived in different cities in various parts of the world, but no place feels quite like home as does Beaconsfield.

When we decided to settle down and start our family, we chose our town because we felt it had everything to offer including a beautiful environment, a great sense of community, wonderful leisure and cultural activities, and great schools for our two children. Thanks to groups like the Beaconsfield Newcomers Club and Toastmasters, integration was easy. 

Many of us feel that back in the days of 1910 when Beaconsfield was brand new, people were kinder and gentler and that community togetherness was stronger. But I feel it is important to let Beaconsfielders know that its community spirit is alive and kicking!

As an example, did you know that Beaconsfield100! is a grassroots ­effort? It is composed of dedicated individuals and groups who are volunteering their time and energy to make our centennial celebrations a great success. Spearheaded by the all volunteer Beaconsfield Centennial 2010 Steering Committee that oversees planning, it is working closely with many community partners. All of this means that we’ll be offering you a multitude of events for all ages and interests to help bring you, the residents, closer to Beaconsfield’s rich heritage. Please join me in applauding these volunteers!

We love our community and what it has to offer and we’re delighted to be part of it and the Beaconsfield’s Centennial ― an event that has been 100 years in the making. We invite you to join us by attending our many centennial events, by getting involved as a volunteer, or becoming a sponsor.

Be sure to take part of the fun and festivities as we “commemorate and celebrate” together!
