Administrative history

In 2011, St. Albert celebrated 150 years since its foundation in 1861. The 150th Anniversary Celebration Committee was established in 2008 with the Mission of organizing celebrations for this 150th anniversary that would engage citizens in the past, present, and future of the city. The Values of this Committee were inclusiveness, stewardship, respect, diversity, innovation, understanding, participation, and volunteerism. Margaret Plain was appointed Chair of the Committee in May 2008. Carol Watamaniuk was the vice-chair and the other Committee members were Barry Bailey, Abi Iskander, Kevin Jones, Susan Jones, Doug Kennedy, and Kent La Rose. Various sub-committees were formed to support and help the Committee, including Volunteer, Sponsorship, Partner and Operations support, Communications, Youth, Homecoming, and Rendezvous Picnic.

The Committee hosted and partnered in a variety of celebration activities over the course of 2011. There were numerous unveilings of arts and heritage pieces, such as the 150th Anniversary Quilt, George Todd Memorial, Millie Seitz Volunteer sculpture, Heart of Our Community Mural, and Star Woman sculpture. The opening of Founders' Walk and the grand reopening of the restored Grain Elevators were also included as part of the celebration.
