I have so many people asking what is this “Homecoming” all about? Anyone who grew up here in Port Alberni or has lived here for any length of time will know what a great community we have here.
What better way to celebrate our community and its 100 year history than to throw a giant community party.
Let’s not only have a party, let’s get everyone who has ever lived here to come to the party. Let’s tell our relatives what a great place Port Alberni is. Let’s brag a little...

My father is a well respected citizen of Port Alberni. He had a Vacuum business (Value Vacuum) in the valley for over 25 years. He also was a well established musician and taught me how to...
