The Vicki Gabereau event is cancelled.
Yesterday, Vicki’s husband passed away suddenly,
At this point there are no plans to reschedule.
First, my heartfelt thanks to all who participated in celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday.
Thanks so much to everyone who signed up to walk in the parade. It looks like we will have a terrific turnout. If you didn’t sign up at the meeting, it’s not too late to join us on July 1. Please make your way to site #29 (this is our parade slot) on Pioneer Rd. We need to be there at 8:45 am, Saturday, July 1. It makes sense to either be dropped off there or park your car closer to where the parade ends at the Parksville Community Centre library and then walk down.
If you have a red granny apron please wear it….and if not, anything red will do. If you have a Canada Day umbrella, perhaps bring that along.
If you have any other questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to call Ann, Carolyn or myself.
See you at the parade!

We would love to have a good turnout for the parade. It’s a great way to raise awareness for our cause. No one has signed up to be in the cars. We’ve had a very generous offer from a car club for this opportunity. Please take advantage of it. Also remember that you do not need to walk the entire route. Friends and family are welcome to join us.

If you have an item you wish to to discuss , please send it to me by Wednesday June 14th.Thank you.Carol email@example.comAn important notice regarding the July 1 parade.Over the years this has been such a wonderful way to raise awareness for our cause. In the past we have felt very supported by the crowds. There was lots of cheering and a few people interested in joining our group.As it is Canada’s 150th birthday we’d like to make our presence special.• at this point we have 4 or 5 cars. I can’t get in touch with the man organizing this so don’t know at this point how many seats that translates into.
• we would like to invite ladies with great difficulty walking to submit their name if they wish to ride. If there are more ladies than seats I guess we would have to draw names. firstname.lastname@example.org
• for those that can walk but perhaps not the entire route, you can start and finish wherever you like.
• we would encourage everyone to wear red and white. The aprons would be perfect for this.
• Ann will look into the cost of balloons
• we’d like to ask members to invite friends and family to join us.
If you have any suggestions/questions please contact me. email@example.com
