Day Update by Debbie Macleod
The executive of the SHPOA would like
to take this opportunity to extend much deserved thanks to all of those
involved in making our Canada Day celebration a success.
We had 112 people join together
to hear the flag ceremony presented by George Einarson and his granddaughter
Erika and then a rousing rendition of Oh Canada was sung by all in
Canadian flags, Maple
Leaf tattoos and a ticket for a door prize were distributed by Verna
Livingston as we entered. Special thanks to our door prize donors
Pat Einarson, Marg Kendel, Nadia Evans and the association.
Also thanks to Barb Veldink and
Don Fast who sat at the door to welcome and register everyone.
And a very special thank you to
our organizers Verna and Dave Livingston. who once again delivered a fabulous
event. And no event would be a success without all the people
who helped to cook/serve the "Canadian Lunch" of hot dogs and soft
drinks. The volunteers included Marg Kendel, Nadia and Bill Evans,
Heather Curry, Barb and Fred Veldink, Rose and Russ Fay, Brad Rempel. A
special thanks to Rita Kerr who I am told is our traditional cake cutter.
Corn Roast Update by
NEWS UPDATE AUGUST 18, 2013 – CORN ROAST
As the Corn Roast of 2013
passes into history we would like to thank the many volunteers who made this
event a great success. Marg Kendall, Heather Curry, Barb and Fred Veldink,
Rita and Tom Kerr, Russ and Rose Fay, Marilyn McDougall, Marianne and David
Ranson and Erika Day.
We'd also like to take this opportunity to say thank you to our Social
Committee Chairs, Dave and Verna Livingstone. They are handing over the reins
but will still be around as volunteers and advisors. Thanks again for all
the work and support over the years.
There were approximately 90 people in attendance with more children
participating than the past few years.
The face painting on some of the children looked spectacular – many
thanks to the artist for her help.
Looking forward to more fun & games next year.
