Celebrate Thanksgiving… again!

Canadian Thanksgiving fell on the same weekend as our commitment to host the Canada Booth at the International Festival of Raleigh… Now that the Festival is over, we invited you to celebrate Thanksgiving… again!

Join CanSouth members on Saturday, October 17 from 11:30am to 3:30pm for our Thanksgiving picnic at Ritter Park in Cary. We will be meeting at the picnic shelter. Bring your own basket filled with goodies and enjoy the company of fellow Canucks.  Did we mention there will be homemade Nanaimo bars?

 

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

On the occasion of Canadian Thanksgiving, Caroline and Gary, chairs of the Canada Booth at the International Festival would like to thank (profusely) the volunteers who hosted the booth with great enthusiasm over the last three days: Darren, Dominique, Greg, Jane, Janice, Joe, Lauren, Shirley and SueA thousand thanks! Mille mercis!

Those who were not able to attend the Festival should keep an eye on the blog: Caroline and Gary will share additional photos and tidbits of information about our country’s contributions to the world gathered during long hours of research for the festival.

Happy Thanksgiving to all CanSouth members and friends! Enjoy a tune by Cage Bullard from Faison, NC, who played the fiddle for us at the Canada Booth.

Day 3 @ the Canada Booth

Third and final day of the International Festival, where the Canada Booth was again very popular with the visitors. Many indicated that they thought it was the most informative of all the cultural booths.

Here is Sunday’s Team Canada!
