The weather was a bit unpredictable this year but the love and passion for Canada was no surprise this year for Canada Day in Milton.
It started off with the annual breakfast for the veterans put on by the local Knights of Columbus. Pancakes, sausages and back bacon were a plenty as we honoured the veterans and remembered those who fought and didn’t return keeping our country safe and free.
This was followed by the march into the fairgrounds with our vets which always brings a smile to our faces. Due to the weather we had to hurry back to town hall for the swearing in of new Canadians – including local Miltonians the Attew Family who took the oath of citizenship.
Milton MP Lisa Raitt and Mayor Gord Krantz were among the dignitaries in attendance to welcome our new Canadians in a very emotional ceremony.
Fireworks always end off the celebration and once agin, they didn’t disappoint.
Thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy the celebrations and thanks to the volunteer committee and sponsors for making this happen.
Happy Canada Day Milton.
