The grand opening of the Anvil Centre civic facility in Downtown New Westminster will be held Sunday, Sept. 14.

The opening of the Anvil Centre, which had a $41.5 million price tag, will run from noon to 6 p.m. with the official ribbon cutting at 1:30 p.m.

The centre has space for conferences, a 364-seat theatre, a new media gallery, the city museum and the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame.

The city has also announced the Wait for Me Daddy War Memorial statue will be unveiled at Hyack Square at 11 a.m. on Oct. 4.

It’s a bronze sculpture based on an iconic photo taken at that spot almost 75 years ago. Canada Post will launch its Wait for Me Daddy commemorative stamp that day. The city museum will also have a Wait for Me Daddy exhibit.
