Chipman will Celebrate its 100th Birthday in 2013

There is no larger heart than that of a small community - one that is tightly connected, and where residents appreciate and do things for one another. Communities naturally evolve and progress in pursuit of economic prosperity, but it is the generous hearts of people that will never change in our corner of the world. Welcome to the Village of Chipman!

In 2013, the Village of Chipman will celebrate its 100th birthday. From August 16-18 visitors, guests and residents will gather to commemorate 100 magnificent years; and together celebrate a rich history, admire a strong heritage and applaud a bright future.

The Village will warmly open its arms to visitors, guests and generations of families who have called Chipman their home. The weekend promises a reminiscent walk down memory lane of a special place and time that has proudly help shape the people we have become. Equally important, the celebration will also serve as a window into the future inspiring a new generation of our sons and daughters to innovate, build and grow our community.
