A new look to the flag for the Village of Rockyford for their Centennial Celebration.
Darcy Burke, the Mayor of Rockyford was thrilled how this new piece of history came about.
"It started out at a Centennial committee meeting. We had decided that we would like to have some banners for our main street that will be displayed after our 100th anniversary. As well as a part of a new flag for our community, the group decided through a discussion, that we should put it out to the community, and see what designs they come up with. Very Fortunately Ben Salt was picked for his design. I think it looks great."
There are two symbols on this new flag that represent a part of what brings the community together. "One is the Pheasant, which avid hunters speak of Rockyford very highly, with the Pheasant population. It also demonstrates the agricultural part of our community with the wheat sheaves."
For the 100 Year Celebration in Rockyford, "The plans start off on June 29th, with a free pancake breakfast on main street Rockyford. A parade with turn of the century farming equipment, vehicles, horse and buggy's or whatever people would like to bring. There's a re-dedication of the Rockyford Union Cemetary, displays at the community centre, showing some of the history of Rockyford, we will finish off the evening with a roast beef dinner, grandstand show and fireworks."
It is quite exciting for the Village of Rockyford to come together to Celebrate their 100 Years, and what better way to celebrate their history, by designing and erecting a new flag for them to celebrate the next Centennial.
