As event sponsor of the 9th Annual Winter Wonderland festival, Mr. Lance Brown Aspac Developments Ltd. attended the Tree Lighting Ceremony on November 21, 2009.
The 9th Annual Winter Wonderland is organized by the Richmond Sunset Rotary Club, and proceeds from this year’s event will go towards the construction of a community education centre in Refilwe, South Africa.
Following speeches made by Mayor Malcolm Brodie and key sponsors, spectators were treated to a regaling round of early Christmas caroling by Rotary Club members, accompanied on piano by the talented Mayor of Richmond.
The tree lighting cerem ony marks the official opening of the sponsor-decorated trees located on the main floor of Richmond City Hall. Visitors to City Hall can vote for the “Best Looking Tree” award.
Much like the Rotary Club, Aspac is also heavily involved with building communities. As one of Vancouver’s top developer of master-planned communities, Aspac will be building the River Green neighbourhood in Richmond over the next 15 years.
