Waving the flag

It’s been an exciting start to Canada Day 2011 with Quality Foods once again coming on board with a $12,500 donation. Having the City of Campbell River match that donation and Lucas Olsen of West Coast Tug and Barge’s donation of $10,000 will make this year’s Festival of Lights Fireworks more spectacular than ever. In the picture (from left), Quality Foods (QF) manager Cyriel Debruyne, the Canada Day organizing committee’s Carol Chapman and Mayor Charlie Cornfield mark the QF donation. The Canada Day organizing committee is working on many new activities, like Campbell River Hospital Foundation Bed Races and Belt Sander Races, to add to the ever growing list of events. For a full schedule of events check out their Facebook page, or go to crsalmonfestival.com as weekly updates will be available.
