As event sponsor of the 11th Annual Winter Wonderland festival, the Aspac Developments team attended the Tree Lighting Ceremony on November 26, 2011 together with MLA’s, Councillors and community leaders in the City.
Winter Wonderland is organized by the Richmond Sunset Rotary Club, and proceeds from this year’s event will benefit various Richmond programs and initiatives.
Following the speeches made by Mayor Malcolm Brodie, Councillors, Ms. Karen Tung of Aspac Developments, and key sponsors, guests were invited to join the Rotary Club members for some Christmas carolling, accompanied by the talented Mayor Brodie on the piano.
The tree lighting ceremony marked the start of the display of 30 beautifully decorated trees supported by local businesses located on the main floor of Richmond City Hall. The public can visit city hall to vote for the “Best Dressed Tree”. Aspac invited local Lego professional Robin Sather to create Lego ornaments for the tree. By doing so, Aspac hopes to spread the message of sustainability by using ornaments that would not create waste.
Aspac is heavily involved with building communities. As one of Vancouver’s top developers of master-planned communities, Aspac will be building the River Green neighbourhood in Richmond over the next 15 years.
