The Canada 150 Homecoming officially kicked off yesterday afternoon at Tent Town across from the Whitney Forum. Committee Co-Chair Colleen McKee praised both the committee and the community for their support. She explains it started two years ago and they put together a committee and they have worked so hard. People have come out of the woodwork and they put on events and anytime they just snapped their fingers people jumped up and said we can do this so here we are, we’ve got 24 hundred people registered for this event, everyone she sees is so happy to be home. McKee added she thinks it’s just a thrill for everybody to be here and she is so proud of this community because they stepped up so Flin Flon, Creighton, Denare Beach this is your party so let’s get out at it.
350 people attended the first event the Seniors Remember When Come and Go yesterday and events continue right through today, tomorrow and Sunday.
