Shawville’s 150th celebrations: plans are afoot!


SHAWVILLE – The Town Hall was the scene of a planning meeting on Tuesday evening, January 31, part of an ongoing series of community gatherings to plan the Shawville 150-year anniversary celebrations. Several events have been confirmed: February 11 will be a winter carnival, with three locations to choose from: the curling club will have activities and free hot dogs, the Shawville District Recreation Association will offer a hill for sliding, and the arena will have a snow castle competition and a public skate from 3 to 6 pm.  As well, St Patrick’s Day will be celebrated on Saturday evening, March 18, at the Handicraft building on the Shawville Fairgrounds where an Irish supper will be served.

The town is looking for a special logo to mark the 150th celebrations. The deadline to submit a logo for consideration is February 18. The next planning session will be February 21 at 7p.m., again at the Town Hall.
