Canada’s sesqui­cen­ten­nial birth­day party will be hosted by vol­un­teers from sev­eral com­mu­ni­ties and or­ga­ni­za­tions. Gov­ern­ments and lo­cal busi­nesses are con­tribut­ing fi­nan­cially to the large slate of ac­tiv­i­ties, en­abling all Cana­di­ans and friends to par­tic­i­pate for free. Ac­tiv­i­ties will run from 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. on July 1 and in­clude an ar­ti­san mar­ket, his­tor­i­cal pro­ces­sion, live en­ter­tain­ment, fea­tur­ing Kevin Dav­i­son, trivia con­tests, BMX demon­stra­tion, soc­cer matches, bounce king­dom, and more.

Meals will be avail­able at cost. Party-go­ers will be en- couraged to dis­play their Cana­dian and Nova Sco­tia pride by wear­ing their favourite cos­tumes. The party will end with a spec­tac­u­lar fire­works out­side of the cap­i­tal re­gion.


A cheque pre­sen­ta­tion was re­cently made to some mem­bers of the Canada 150: Be­fore & Be­yond cel­e­bra­tions. Pre­sent­ing their do­na­tion for the fes­tiv­i­ties were RCL Kingston Branch 098 pres­i­dent Dave Ged­des and vice-pres­i­dent Glen Paul. The Kingston le­gion is also part of the or­ga­ni­za­tional com­mit­tee and is pre­par­ing break­fast at the le­gion for the oc­ca­sion.
