Stopping short of taking a dip: It was not a traditional grand opening. Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese stopped in at Coventry Woods apartments in Walnut Grove, where he officially reopened their recently renovated swimming pool alongside Coventry council president Dave Turner.

LANGLEY IN FOCUS: This week in our community

Submit your photos to editor@langleyadvancetimes.com

Each week, the Langley Advance Times hosts a feature called Langley In Focus,where we invite the community to submit photographs of happenings in the community that might not necessarily warrant a complete news story, but are important to share with the residents of Langley.

That can include pictures from a fundraiser, a cheque presentation, an awards presentation, or other significant moment for local individuals, groups, or companies.

If you wish to send in a submission for consideration in a future Langley In Focus, please send it to editor Roxanne Hooper at editor@langleyadvancetimes.com.

 

More than just a ribbon cutting: Township Mayor Jack Froese was on hand for the official ribbon cutting at Central Agencies, Langley’s newest insurance brokers. He said grand opening ceremonies are about celebrating the launch of a new business. But it’s also a time to rejoice in all the hard work that gets people to this point. Owners Judy MacNeiil, Dennis MacNeiil, and Kathy McCracken helped the mayor perform the official cut. Meanwhile, the entire Central team (left to right)took a moment for a group photo during the grand opening: Suzanne Lima, Diane Ciulla, Steve Howitt, Judy MacNeill, Dennis MacNeill, Monica Bodger, Kathy McCracken, Ellen Young, Wouter Zanen, Renee Laverdure, and Derek Whipps.
