Centennial weekend in Consort August 3 – 5 had activities for the whole family to enjoy.  Friday night welcomed visitors and locals alike to the celebrations with a hotdog supper which was followed by a family dance.  A pancake breakfast started Saturday off nicely. The parade was full of floats and vehicles throwing candy to expectant viewers. CAO of Consort Monique Jeffrey heard there “was well over 100 entries.”

All day there was a slow pitch tournament. Children could amuse themselves with activities including bouncy castles, bunnock and crafts. A supper brought people back together later in the afternoon and a talent show provided entertainment for those who stuck around. Jeffrey said they served over 1300 plates that night. Fireworks finished off the day brilliantly.
There was another breakfast on Sunday, an interdenominational church service and then there was a golf tournament at Gooseberry Lake. Also in the afternoon there was the Roland School Tour at Sansregrets, tours at the Sortland Museum and tours of the Consort Museum. Again a supper brought people together. The chili supper concluded the weekend’s celebrations and sent people off with good memories and good food.
Jeffrey was enthusiastic about the centennial saying it was “fabulous, a most wonderful weekend.”
