Incorporated in 1968, July 9th marked the 50th anniversary of the Cariboo Regional District.

In celebration, several public events are being held in the districts electoral areas, with the Area H event happening this Saturday.

CRD chair and Area H director Margo Wagner says there will be giveaways and cupcakes and the Forest Grove Fire department ladies auxiliary will be there raising funds with hamburger sales.

Wagner says she will be on hand with information on the CRD as well. “Information on the services the CRD offers. For people who may be new to the area, that sort of thing.”

The CRD is also holding an anniversary photo contest. Residents are encouraged to send in photos from around the Cariboo where they will be judged by a professional photographer. The winner will receive a GoPrp camera.

Information on the events and the photo contest can be found on the CRD website page here.
