Sydenhamfun in the Glorious sun
Volunteers with the Sydenham Canada Day Committee, the S&A Club in Harrowsmith and the Central Frontenac Recreation Committee in Sharbot Lake had to feel a little down going into Canada Day this year. After months of hard work, the predicted cold rainy day would have brought Canada Day festivities to a soggy halt.
But the rain held off early in the day and the warm sunshine took hold and never left, turning Canada Day into a rousing succes throughout the region.
The longest Canada Day is the one in Sharbot Lake. The Oso fire hall was busy from before 7 am until after 10 am for the most popular pancake breakfast of the year, and continuing through the parade and events at the beach the crowds remained thick (although not as thick as the mosquitos) right up until the evening fireworks at 10 pm.Harrowsmith
