“Throughout her term, the Lieutenant Governor tries to visit as many regions of British Columbia as possible to connect with citizens, celebrate their culture and achievements and learn about what makes each community so unique.”

The details of her visit are not yet finalized, Dunton said, but one community meeting has been confirmed in Sechelt.

Guichon will meet with members of the public at the Seaside Centre at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 16, during a reception hosted by District of Sechelt council.

Refreshments will be served at the event, and young local musicians will perform.

In Gibsons, Guichon has requested to meet with veterans at the Gibsons Legion, visit residents at Christenson Village and talk with students at Gibsons Elementary, according to the Town’s corporate officer, Selina Williams.

The Lieutenant Governor’s role is to represent the Queen at the provincial level. Guichon was sworn in as B.C.’s 29th Lieutenant Governor in 2012.
