CanSouth wishes Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadian families living in The Triangle and in North Carolina. Our President also wants to take the opportunity to thank everyone on the CanSouth Leadership Team for their time and efforts in organising the various events for our membership.
A small group gathered to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving at Ritter Park yesterday. It was such a lovely day for a picnic and there were very yummy Nanaimo bars!! Click on the photo of those tasty Canadian treats to view the album (or access it using the tab in the menu above).

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?
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 Sue. A 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.

Because Canadian Thanksgiving falls on the same weekend as our commitment to host a cultural booth at the International Festival of Raleigh, in keeping with the spirit of including as many Canadian expats as possible, your CanSouth Leadership Team has decided to host our inaugural Thanksgiving Picnic in the Park on October 17 instead of October 11.
