Thank you

Thank you! The sky lit up with a Chrysanthemum of colour descending, fantastic I thought, as I sat and watched our Creemore fireworks ending what turned out to be a great day. I had a lot of help from our community to make it happen. My thanks to: Keith Boulter for organising the Harold Crawford bike parade, couldn’t coerce him into the big kids parade; our Scouting group who ran the old time games; Mayor Doug Measures for helping with the Canada Day cake cutting and serving; Shawn Hughson and gang for the ball hockey tournament; and all the Legion members, families and friends for pitching in to make everyone welcome with refreshments that met their needs.
Every year my biggest concern is getting enough Sponsors to cover the cost. I still think that we are favoured by Jeff Clarmo, North Star Fireworks, by giving us the biggest bang for our buck. Heritage Canada provides the largest funding followed by the Township, Creemore Springs Brewery, Creemore Legion, BIA and many others who can be seen on the Canada Day poster designed by darci-que. I feel privileged by the trust people place in me when they hand me money on the street for the fireworks. Every dollar counts towards making Canada Day in Creemore possible.
Being realistic and somewhat pragmatic I think someone else should step in as I feel I can be here today and gone tomorrow. Until that happens I’ll continue with the after action reports required by Heritage Canada, Clearview Township and Legion.
My thanks to everyone for all the help and participation to make a memorable Canada Day.
A bad apple note: I promised Bob Giffen that I would return the baskets that we got GIFFEN APPLES in. I have one, please return the other.
Norm Nordstrom, Canada Day Coordinator, Creemore Legion
