Celebrating Canada Day with the folks in Chase

CHASE — Syd and I much enjoyed the Canada Day ceremonies at Memorial Park in Chase today where I represented Area P. It all began with a parade through downtown to the park, where there were food concessions, arts booths and games for kids.

I had the honour of sharing a canoe with Transportation Minister Todd Stone, Chase Mayor Rick Berrigan, Columbia-Shuswap MP Mel Arnold and Neskonlith Chief Judy Wilson. After a short paddle down the beach to the dock, we were joined by SD 73 board chair Denise Harper and piped to the bandshell for O Canada and opening remarks.

Thanks to the the Village of Chase, the Chase Canada Day Committee and all the volunteers.
