Turn-out the biggest highlight for first Fall River canal days http://www.thelaker.ca/stories.asp?id=3918 Pat Healey FALL RIVER: The highlight of the first annual Fall River Canal Days was in the numbers, one of its organizers said. Sandra Carr said the Canada Day festival, held at seven different locations throughout the area, was a success. Among the venues used was the Gordon R. Snow Community Centre, the old Fall River Recreation Centre and Lake Thomas, to name a few. “We all think Canal Days were great,” Carr said. “There was more than enough interest to make it into an annual event.” She was thrilled with the crowd turnout, which, at some events, was believed to be about 100 people. “Hopefully, there will be enough positive reports on the various activities that, next year, people will decide to stay home and enjoy them,” she added.

The Community Breakfast on July 1st was a great success. The Committee planned for 150 people but served approximately 240. It sold out and people (approx. 15) had to be turned away.
We apologize for any inconvenience. The $560 raised that morning went to GP Vanier Junior High School in Fall River for their Beautification Program.
A big Thank You goes to all the Volunteers and Sponsors!
