A big thank you to the W. Erskine Johnston Public School singers and guitar players and their dedicated teacher Mrs. Stephens for performing the anthem before City Council today (Jan 28). They did a great job. In my introduction I commented that the group enjoyed playing Top 40 hits like Taylor Swift. Mayor Jim Watson thanked the group for singing the national anthem and surprised them with a request for an encore performance of Taylor Swift, which the guitar club sang on the spot. They are great under pressure. The club performed last year at the Kanata North Annual Picnic and our yearly Kanata North Community Appreciation Awards.
