    I would like to thank all those who participated, either by displaying their skills, helping out or by most importantly attending, socializing and enjoying the day. Canada Day was truly reflective of our culture, heritage and social diversity. The event highlighted what makes this village the place we all our proud to call home!

      Glad you had a great time Carol! It was super to see so much creativity in one place and to meet residents I’d never met before. Maybe we should block the street off more often. It made for a wonderful social experience, didn’t it? Thanks for your contribution too!

      Hello Carol – I was thinking of you and all the friends and hoping that all is well. Haven’t been on the wonderful Victory in awhile but it’s always on my mind. Plan to get there this year for I miss the all of it. Keep well and be in touch. Michael
