Happy 150th Birthday, Canada!!!!

It was great to see so many people out to the Levee at Town Hall on New Year’s Day.  Lots of visiting with old friends and neighbours and welcoming new residents and our new CAO.  Special thanks to Councillor Brady for her help in making the day a success.

We sang O Canada once the flag was in place.  MPP Steve Clarke commented later on how robust we sang our national anthem.  That’s hometown pride, Steve!
