It's Carnival Time!

Once again, we will have Campbell Amusements on site providing fun for the whole family. 
*While we provide activities and entertainment free to attendees, the carnival rides/games are run independently, therefore they do charge for their services (rides/games).
All other event and activities are provided free of charge compliments of the many Volunteers and Corporate supporters that make this day such a great success.

The Portraits of Honour
Dave Sopha will once again be proudly displaying his nationally recognized masterpiece - The Portraits of Honour

An increasing number of our Canadian Soldiers, who have served us in peacekeeping missions and war, have lost their lives, “Made the ultimate sacrifice’’ so that there may be some peace in the world.

This is a way for us to show our troops that CANADIANS ARE PROUD of our military and First Responders and of the work they do for us and other people throughout the world. This Portrait also gives our troops a chance to say good bye, and pay their respect to their fallen friends.

The painting helps to bring closure to the families, by giving them the chance to look into the eyes of their loved ones, one more time, knowing that their legacy lives on.

Stop by and say Hello to the amazing Portrait artist, Cambridge resident and Father of 4, Dave Sopha.

The Portraits of Honour will be proudly displayed all day until 7pm.
