HAPPY DOMINION DAY!

Yes, I still call it DOMINION DAY.

Back when the Government of the Day decided that all references to the "Dominion Of Canada" should be removed from official terms, a law was quickly passed to call July 1st "Canada Day". However, it was the last day before summer break, and there was not a quorum in the house when the law was passed. So, as per Parliamentary procedure, the law is invalid. DOMINION DAY sounds better anyway.

Now, to add to the confusion, the Holidays act has been changed, so July 1st is July 1st, period. Unless it falls on a Sunday, in which case the holiday is July 2nd. Yet most celebrations are still being held July 1st.

Well, no matter what you choose to call it, it is this Country's 151st Birthday, and worthy of celebrating.

Here's the Branch schedule for the weekend -

Saturday June 30th
MEAT DRAW 3-5 pm
Branch Members are asked to please volunteer to help run the show.

Sunday July 1st
In order that our dedicated staff and volunteers can enjoy this day
amongst their circle of Family and Friends,
the Branch will be CLOSED.

Monday July 2nd
OPEN noon - 5

 

 

Enjoy the weekend, and remember, if you're still in town, come on down!
