Canada Day, July 1, 2020
What a Canada Day!When everyone was wondering how to celebrate our nation’s holiday, The Village residents were busy putting up flags and decorations for our first porch celebration.What a success! I was blown away by the dedication and creativity demonstrated by so many Villagers.Congrats on yet another very successful event by the Social Committee members. You have outdone yourselves.Sue Henry (VCA Communications Director) and I drove around every street after the parade to look at the porch decorations one more time to make sure we captured them all. Sue and I then spent about an hour on my porch going back and forth to determine the winners. It was NOT an easy choice.The winners were thrilled with their prizes and, more importantly, grateful for the opportunity to participate in such a perfect event to bring the community together.I am more and more grateful to be part of this community and you are all an important part of why that is. Thank you everyone for making this such a special day!Bravo!Mona Babin
