2017 was Canada’s 150th birthday and Cobourg celebrated with a large number of special events.  The Town asked the members of the Northumberland Photography Club (NPC) to be at events and take photos.  A committee was formed to organize this: Bryan Marjoram, Jeannie Gane, Sandra Peters, Elisabeth La Fontaine, Dan Milligan, Stan Kicak and Elaine Amenta.  The photos were then put into a video and shown at Cobourg’s Mayor’s Levee on New Year’s Day 2018.

A year in the life of Cobourg

COBOURG - Capturing the Canada 150 events in Cobourg should be a snap for the Northumberland Photography Club.

The club accepted the task from the Town of Cobourg to photograph the Canada 150 events throughout 2017, said the club's president Raymond Williams.

"The idea is to capture a year in the life of Cobourg for 2017;” said Williams.

Club members have already begun the busy task with the town's two big Canada 150 events early this year - the Ontario Curling Championships and the 2017 Ontario 55+ Winter Games, said Williams. Up next is the RBC Cup National Jr. A Hockey Champion­ship. There are about 50 to 60 events to cover throughout the year.
