OAKVILLE- The mayor of Dorval, Quebec, and eight other citizens of Oakville's twin municipality will be among those at the opening of the new Centennial civic centre on Saturday afternoon. Also represented will be the Ontario department of education and the provincial library service.

The 2 p.m, ceremony, which will be conducted by Hon. Earl Rowe, Ontario's lieutenant - governor, will be preceded by a luncheon at the Holiday Inn for Mr. Rowe and 26 others who will take part.

Substituting for Mayor McLean Anderson, who is on vacation in Barbados, will be Reeve Herbert Merry. Councillor R. J. (Kelly) New, chairman of the Centennial project committee, will have a leading part in the proceedings, and Bill Walker of Oakville, popular television personality, will be master of ceremonies.
