Canada Day Parade

1 July 2012

2012_canada_day_parade_3All across the country, Canadians were celebrating Canada Day on July 1st and the Foundation was in on the action. As with previous years, we were part of the Canada Day Parade in Scarborough. Seventeen yellow-clad volunteers got together at Scarborough Town Centre and had lots of fun decorating our van and truck with balloons, Canada flags and pretty much anything that was red and white. Once they were ready, they marched down Brimley Road; shouting, cheering, playing music and waving flags to get the hundreds of spectators and on-lookers excited. All the little kids along the road were jumping, shouting and most overjoyed as our group passed by and our younger volunteers showered them with balloons and candy. Our volunteers and all the spectators much enjoyed the parade, all the way to the finish at Lawrence Avenue. The Foundation, along with more than 30 different groups, participated in the parade to celebrate our wonderful country’s 145th birthday and we wish all Canadians a Happy Canada Day!
