Everyone is invited to the grand opening of the new 100 Mile House RCMP Detachment on Alder Avenue on May 7.

The celebration begins at 1 p.m. and the event ends around 4 p.m.

The new building, almost triple the size of the old detachment has been “open” for business since last fall.

This will be a community event, Staff/Sgt. Blake Ward says, adding he and the members are very proud of the new building.

The day begins with a symbolic march by RCMP members from the old detachment on Alpine Avenue to the new building. There will be a flag raising ceremony before government and RCMP dignitaries begin their speeches.

The day includes a cake-cutting ceremony, Crime Stoppers members will offer barbequed buffalo burgers, and entertainment provided by Canim Lake Band members.

Of course, the event wouldn’t be complete without going inside the police station, and Ward says there will be guided tours throughout the day.

Parking will be an issue, he adds because the festivities will take up a good portion of the detachments’ parking lot.

He adds that they made arrangements for people attending the grand opening to park at Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School.
