"Joan E. Ballenger
1939 - 2005
The Town of Sidney and the Peninsula Celebrations Society celebrates Joan Ballenger, an incredibly active community volunteer.

A woman with vision

Plaque dedicated June 28, 2009"

"In July 2007, the Town of Sidney was awarded a BC Government Spirit Squares Grant for the design and construction of a new pavilion structure in Beacon Park. The pavilion structure and surrounding landscaping are designed to function as a multi-purpose venue for a variety of community and cultural events and to serve as a gathering place for community residents and visitors to the Town. Since it was opened in June 2009, it has become a prominent waterfront destination and focal point in the downtown core.

The structure was designed by D'Ambrosio Architecture & Urbanism and built by StructureCraft Builders Inc. Construction commenced in December 2008, and was completed in June 2009. A grand opening event was held on June 28, 2009, to officially open the new performance venue and celebrate the new community gathering place."
