SLIDESHOW: Chilliwack photos from 2018

Some that made the news, some just for fun

A lot made the news this past year in Chilliwack, from fires to elections to high water to political visits.

Much of it was written about and some of it was caught on camera.

Here’s a slideshow featuring a few dozen photos taken by reporter Paul Henderson in 2018, some newsworthy, some observational, and some are just quirky and fun. (One photo isn’t by Henderson but is of him at the mayoral debate, taken by Darren McDonald.)

Some of these photos appeared in print in The Progress. Many appeared only online or on social media. But some never appeared anywhere before here.

See you in 2019.
