O, Canada!

Hey … or should I say ‘eh’…

For the last five years Gate House Community Association has celebrated our birthday on Canada Day with activities, music, BBQ’s movies, kid’s activities, and cake. But not this year.

The North Island Gazette placed a two year old ad in this week’s paper – they’ve since corrected it on Facebook. Please note there are NO ACTIVITIES  at GATE HOUSE THEATRE on Canada Day.

Last year, when the Town of Port McNeill decided to take on Canada Day and use it to unveil the clock and honour Mr. Furney we were very excited to see their involvement. We had high hopes that our efforts to build a town celebration on July 1st were going to continue to build, however, since 2015 I’ve asked … and asked … and waited …. for some initiative toward Canada’s 150th to come from the Town … but it came too late (end of May 2017) We did not feel we could organize anything deserving of celebrating 150 years of our great country so have given  our staff and amazing volunteers the day to go and celebrate where and how they choose.

But have no fear! There will be cake on Friday June 30th @ 6:30. We’re showing
