Canada Day 150 Celebrations.

Foremost & District Historical Society

CANADA  150
We are excited to celebrate 150 years of Canadian history. We plan to “Paint the Town” red and white with Canadian images to get everyone in the party spirit.
On Rodeo weekend (June 16-17), we will have a special Canada 150 float in the parade. That weekend we will also start a Scavenger Hunt of old and unusual items.  Basic rules are that teams may have up to 5 members and the total age of members must be at least 150 years as of July 1, 2017. We hope this will encourage all ages to participate and work together. You must register to get a list of items and be eligible for a prize. Collected items must be taken to the Hall on July 1 between noon and 12:30.  Registration starts on Rodeo weekend. After that, you can register at FCSS and the Library --  more places could be announced later.
Best Decorated  House or Business
There’s no need to register – just be creative and win a prize! You could use red and white decorations or anything that will symbolize Canada – a flag, moose, inukshuk, loon, beaver, etc. Perhaps use some old Christmas lights or even flowers that are red and white. Please have your decorations visible from the street. Judging will be on June 30 and prizes awarded on July 1 at the Community Hall.
People Parade
On Canada Day, we will have a “People Parade”. We will meet as a group at 1pm and walk from the Library to the Community Hall (no vehicles, scooters or bicycles, please).  Water will be provided, courtesy of ATB Financial. You should wear a costume of red and white, including flags, noisemakers and anything else truly Canadian. We will have a group photo taken outside at the Community Hall and we will also have a photo booth inside for individual pictures.
Community Hall
The Hall will be open right after the People Parade. Displays will show our 23 Prime Ministers, as well as some of the “largest” Canadian icons.  There will be games from 2 – 3:30 for children and perhaps even adults who want to test their knowledge of Canada -- so start studying!
Prizes for the Scavenger Hunt and Best Decorated House and Business will be awarded as well as several door prizes for lucky guests.
Coffee and juice will be available at 2:00 and cake about 2:30
Our history books “Shortgrass Country” will be available for purchase at the Hall.

We will update this information as the date gets closer.
