ENTERTAINMENT

Capri Everitt is a Canadian singer and children’s activist who is best known for receiving a Guinness World Record for “most national anthems sung in their host countries in one year.” Everitt sang the national anthem in 80 countries between 2015-2016, receiving international acclaim and world-wide media attention. She was 11 years old at the end of the tour.

Capri sang each country’s national anthem in its own language, singing in a total of 41 different languages. The purpose of the tour was to raise money and awareness for orphaned and abandoned children, and all donations were given to SOS Children’s Villages. Capri will serenade lucky guests of “HOME for the HOLIDAYS” with Christmas songs.

NEWLY RENOVATED HERITAGE BUILDING

This familiar building on #10 Highway and 104th Street, in East Delta has been a landmark since the 1930s when it was built as a community project on land donated by the McKee Family – a pioneer Delta family noted for its generosity in community affairs. The Hall is now cared for by the McKee Athletic Association, a community-minded group of volunteers who carry on the work begun many years ago by the founding families in East Delta.
