YEAR IN REVIEW: Port Moody looks back 100 yrs
Port Moody residents who attended a city council meeting on April 7, 2013 could be forgiven for thinking they had walked through a time warp.
In a way, they did.
Dressed in the fashions of 1913, Mayor Mike Clay and council re-enacted the first ever Port Moody council meeting, debating 100-year-old bylaws as part of their centennial celebration kickoff.
Much like their neighbours in Port Coquitlam, Port Moody packed 2013 with community events and birthday celebrations, including heritage house tours, a parade and the Centennial All Nations Festival at Rocky Point.
This month, Port Moody unveiled two carvings to commemorate the city’s centennial. Squamish Nation artist Jody Broomfield was commissioned to design and create the work, which features two Central Coast Salish house posts now on display at city hall.
On Dec. 10, the city also sealed its time capsule, containing photos and artifacts that will be opened in 2038.
