Confucius Statue Unveiling
The City of Duncan will be unveiling a statue of Confucius in China Gardens Park, 242 Government Street, on Friday, October 4, 2013 at 2:00 p.m.
This Confucius statue was donated to the City during Duncan’s Centennial by the family of Wah Sing Chow, in his honour, and to commemorate Duncan’s once thriving Chinatown, which stood nearby for over 70 years.
A reception/tea will be held at the Cowichan Valley Museum & Archives, in the Duncan Train Station at 130 Canada Avenue immediately following the ceremony.
A new exhibit called Duncan’s Chinatown will be on view in the temporary gallery and features artifacts and images from the Chinese community in the Cowichan Valley and from the Museum’s collection.
