Due to the town’s centennial and an anticipated larger crowd, the levee is being moved from council chambers to the Kensington Lions club.
“We kind of feel this room could be a little small,” said Deputy Mayor Rowan Caseley, chairman of the Kensington 2014 Committee, referring to council chambers at Monday night’s town council meeting.
Special invitations are being sent to all former mayors and councilors, all businesses within the town and to businesses within proximity to town boundaries.
Also, non-profit organizations and several other special guests are being invited.
At the levee, a 2014 proclamation will be made and the Canada Post Cancellation Stamp revealed.
Mayor Gordon Coffin, in his mayor’s report, said he spent most of Sunday evening writing personalized invitations to the levee, which council hopes will be the biggest to date for the town.
The levee will begin at 12 noon and is open to the public.
