A Special Thank You to Morven Construction

This year we want to recognise the ongoing contribution of Morven Construction Limited. Every year since 1993, Morven Construction has brought a flatbed truck to be our stage in Centennial Park, traffic cones to help ensure that Academy Street is maintained as an alternate route through the Village and made a financial donation toward our programming.

Thank you to Rene Doornekamp for beginning this tradition and  Murray Aitken, the new owner for continuing it.
