The community of Langley is invited to visit a new travelling exhibit called It’s An Honour! on Friday afternoon and Saturday at Langley Fundamental Middle and Secondary School.

Students at Langley Fundamental will get the first peek into the interactive exhibit, while the bus will open to the public from 4 to 6 p.m. on Friday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Mounted in a specially designed 1,000 square foot bus, the exhibit showcases stories of great Canadians who have been recognized for their extraordinary achievements.

Visitors can catch a glimpse of insignia and medals, discover the unique stories of many honours recipients and watch a hologram message from former Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield. Admission is free.

Since August 2013, the exhibit has travelled through Saskatchewan, the Northwest Territories, Yukon, Northern Alberta and British Columbia. The exhibit will be in B.C. until late March 2014. Over the next two years, it will journey to schools, community centres, special events and small towns to connect with and inspire visitors of all ages.

The school is at 21250 – 42 Avenue.
