Sisters in Spirit Proclamation and Memorial Rock

A request was submitted to Council to declare October 4, 2015 as “Sisters in Spirit Day,” as well as to permit the installation of a memorial rock in Riverfront Park and to invite Councillors to the annual walk. Council voted in favour of all of the requests. As such October 4 will officially be Sisters in Sprit Day in Peace River.

New website

Peace River’s new website launched this week and was officially presented to Council as information. The new site was built over the summer with the help of our IT contractor. The process resulted in a new website that is a better tool for residents, businesses, newcomers and investors.
