Summerland Legion uploading Canada Day Celebrations.

The Royal Canadian Legion wont be doing their usual Canada Day picnic this year.

Like so many others this year, they are taking Canada Day online.

Past President John Dorn says although there will be people at Memorial Park in Summerland, he is not encouraging the public to come out.

“We will have the usual dignitaries, the flag raising and singing of O’Canada. We will take a video of that and share it with the public somehow on the Internet.” Said Dorn.

He says the video will be available on the legion’s website and hopefully on YouTube.

Seeing as the community is unable to get together, Dorn says it would be nice if everyone could celebrate the things we love about Canada and show respect for the freedoms we have in this country.
