Despite reports to the contrary, a fabulous event will again take place on July 1st for Canada Day. This is a great event of all ages and particularly safer if you have young children. I agreed, along with Councillor Hubley to help to get the support needed for this year’s incredible celebration. My thanks to Tracey from my office who has been able to find additional sponsors for our Canada Day. The event is completely volunteer-led with minimal funds from government, so donations, sponsorships and booth rentals are essential to pay for the costs. Enjoy the midway, musicians, family fun zone, craft area, food court and displays. For information on sponsoring, please contact my office. For a list of activities and to donate go to www.canadadayinkanata.com. Join me at Walter Baker Park on Terry Fox to enjoy this year’s Canada Day. I will have my maple leaf tattoos again this year.
