It includes meeting minutes, correspondence, and photographs relating to the activities undertaken by the Committee in celebrating the RCMP's 100th anniversary. Events included commemorative markers, a display at City Hall, artwork by sculptor John Weaver, a special event at Fort Edmonton Park, and a commemorative church service at All Saints' Anglican Cathedral. The Committee also became responsible for a delegation sent to Calgary to honour that municipality's 100th anniversary as a City in 1975.

RCMP Centennial Committee

Special Events Office

This series includes material created by the Special Events Office, a centralized body created in the early 1980s to administer significant civic events. This was a departure from previous special events, which were arranged by organizing committees. The events reflected in these records include the openings of Police Headquarters and the new Convention Centre, the City’s 80th anniversary celebrations, the visit of Pope John Paul II, the military tattoo which resulted in the creation of the Mayors Chain of Office, and the Tribach Festival. The records also include material relating to the replacement of the Commission Board with the Office of the City Manager.
