Lt.-Gov. Steven Point will officially open the Sikh Heritage Museum in Abbotsford on Saturday, Dec. 17.

The museum is located in the Gur Sikh Temple, which celebrated its 100th anniversary in January. As the first Sikh temple to be built in North America, it was declared a national historic site in 2007.

The museum opening is one of several activities that have taken place each month throughout 2011 to commemorate the centennial.

The celebration begins at 2 p.m. and is followed by a high tea from 3 to 4 p.m. The temple is located at the corner of South Fraser Way and Fairlane Street.
