Canada Day Celebrations in the Village

Yes, it was a little warm – however that didn’t get in the way of a large crowd coming to Lockwood Park this afternoon to celebrate Canada Day.  The Honourable Steve Clark, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing was in the ‘Port and had some very inspiring words for the people and businesses of our Village.

Congratulations to May LaHey who is Westport’s Senior of the Year for 2018.  Such a great Ambassador.  Steve, Frank Huth and I cut the ribbon to “officially open” the new stage.  The Royal Canadian Legion Upper Rideau Branch #542  Colour Party took the lead for the parade, followed by Mary Cowan chauffeuring the “Senior of the Year” and supported by the Westport Fire Fighters and the Westport Arts Council’s float. And lots and lots of kids, bikes and moms and dads.  So much fun for everyone!

Hope everyone had a good time!
