SPECIAL thanks to the new Canada Day Convener JIM READY and his committee that prepared all year for this
event which again was fantastic. JIM, great job and thank you
for helping make residents and families feel great about our community and the
best country in the world.
2016 Canada Day committee, after much consideration, has
decided to donate some funds to 2 local charities from
proceeds generated from the full day of Canada Day
celebrations, Saturday, July 1st, 2016. Although
it was not possible, because of the rainy day, to do all the
planned outdoor activities, the Canada Day parade itself and
the Canada Day dance later that evening were a success.
the committee agreed these are well known and respected
local charities, the donations were $250.00 to Hospice
Simcoe and $250.00 to Million Dollar Smiles.
most sincere thanks to everyone for a successful day -
except the rain......

message from JIM READY, Canada Day Committee Chair.
In spite of the rain on Canada Day, I'm so pleased to say
the Canada Day parade was fortunately able to proceed as
planned.... I can't tell you how it was such a relief to me
personally to see the last entry disappear out of sight
going south around The Hub on Weeping Willow Drive while I
stood there at the gathering point getting wetter by the
moment.... I even considered delaying the start for a
time.... it was yes or no for quite a while but it didn't
seem that the rain was going to stop.... but now it's over
and done and I'm happy....
to thank all the SCA clubs and all the SCA residents who
were able to participate in this year's Canada Day
parade.... also to all those, like the Art Club and
Photography Club who couldn't attend, and both The Spoke and
The Hub who tried very hard to complete the activities they
wanted to do but couldn't, all because of the weather....
THANKS TO ALL....
parade itself, I do have the results of the awards as judged
by our three (3) Canada Day parade judges, Carolyn Bennett
from The Spoke, Diane Elliott from The Hub, and Joe
Libralesso from The Wheel, all of whom also stood in the
rain and I can't thank enough.... (the results are in
wish to thank all the many volunteers who helped, in so many
different ways, our Canada Day Committee, both during the
day and at the Canada Day dance later that evening.... I
need to say - WE COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOU!
addition the The Spoke, The Hub and The Wheel who were most
helpful, I must also say thanks for how our committee
received so much support from the Town of Innisfil,
Parkbridge, Old Firehouse Catering, the UNDERCOVER band, and
our many local business sponsors.... OUR SINCEREST THANKS!
apologize if I've missed anyone who should also be
acknowledged and thanked....
