Winterama is a tradition unique to our community annually held on the third weekend of February. It is a ritual of community spirit and pride; a celebration of our heritage, our culture and our homecoming, gathering families, friends and acquaintances in seasonal celebration.

On February 15, 1965 our national flag was raised for the first time on Parliament Hill. Every year since 1996, when Parliament declared February 15th as National Flag of Canada Day, we celebrate our beautiful flag. In 2017, the National Flag of Canada is celebrating its 52nd anniversary.
It’s the first day of Fall, ya’ll!
Thursday September 22, 2016 marks the first day of Autumn. Although the weather is still very warm and could easily be confused for late-Summer, it’s now officially the Fall season. It’s time for pumpkin-everything and colour tones of oranges and browns.
Autumn also means that Thanksgiving (in Canada) is quickly approaching, so it’s almost time for turkey. Yum!
Personally, I traditionally wear shorts and flip flops until the first snow flies, but that doesn’t mean it’s not Fall. Grab a warm drink and go for a drive or walk, enjoy the changing colours of the leaves all around you.
I am very lucky to live in one of the most beautiful and stunning areas for the changing of the seasons. Georgian Bay is one of the best spots to view the leaves changing colours. Check out the Fall Colour Routes for the best locations to visit.
Happy Canada Day !!!
Veterans know the price paid for our freedom and they want all Canadians to share in this understanding. They are passing the torch of remembrance to us, the people of Canada, to ensure that the memory of their efforts and sacrifices will not die with them, and that an appreciation of the values they fought for will live on in all Canadians. The 11th of November marks Remembrance Day in Canada, and many other countries around the world.
Happy Canada Day! Canada’s birthday is a time to celebrate all things Canadian.
