May Day Virtual Event

Exciting news! As part of our May Day celebration this year we will be participating in the Hyack Drive-by Parade held on May 29,2021 at the New Westminster Secondary School. We'll be setting up a parade style display including a May Pole and it will be attended by Major May Day and members of our Royal Suite, including the May Queen of 2020. We'll also be handing out colouring pages for our Colour the Crest contest.

Look for us along the parade route! We look forward to seeing you all in person!
