PHOTO GALLERY: Celebrating 150 years of community in Inwood

Donna Oriet was surprised to be named Brooke-Alvinston's Senior of the Year during Inwood's 150th Anniversary celebration Sunday

It was a time to look back and celebrate with friends and neighbours in Inwood this weekend at the 150th anniversary event.

The beginning of the celebration Friday started out a bit wet with the slow pitch tournament getting started in the rain. By Saturday, the sun came out and so did the people. Children packed the Inwood Library to have their face painted, have a picture taken in front of a green screen so their picture could be inserted into an historic photo or to decorate their bike for the parade at the opening ceremonies.

Dignitaries wished the community a happy anniversary and the games went on as people took in the historic displays and the car show.

Sunday, a live auction raised $6,300 to help pay for the event. An Edmonton Oiler’s Wayne Gretzky sweater went for over $600.

During the Sunday morning church service, one of the organizers of the event, Donna Oriet was recognized as Brooke-Alvinston’s Senior of the Year.

And Sunday evening, the community gathered again at the Brooke-Telecom garage for a roast beef dinner and all the fix’ns.
