Providing the spark for Canada Day fireworks


Let the Canada Day Celebration Continue…Raffle Winners Named

This year’s Canada Day Celebration in Morrisburg was a huge hit that was topped off with a spectacular fireworks display. Thanks to the generosity of a number of business owners in Morrisburg, and the support of the community who purchased tickets, the Canada Day organizing committee was able to raise between $4,000 and $5,000 through a Canada Day Raffle which helped to offset the $10,000 cost of the display. Contributing enormously to the success of the raffle are the merchants pictured who generously donated gift certificates for their stores for the raffle prizes. They are, back l-r, Gurcharn Cheema of Ultramar Gas, Michel Proulx of Canadian Tire, Riley Hatherall of Valu-mart, Ken Rundle of Giant Tiger and Lloya Sprague of Home Hardware. Pictured front centre with her grandson Lincoln is Canada Day Committee representative Linda Robinson. On the left is Muriel McLean top prize winner of a $700 Canadian Tire gift certificate and on the right is Les Marshall who won a $100 gift certificate from Ultramar. Len Bellamy won a $500 Valu-mart gift certificate, Janice Casselman a $200 Giant Tiger gift certificate and April McKay a $100 Home Hardware gift certificate. “Our merchants are always so very generous,” said Robinson as she thanked each of them for their donations. “I have heard nothing but compliments about the fireworks. Their contributions, along with the support of the community helped to make the fireworks possible. The park was packed all day. ”
