On Saturday morning is the Civic Holiday Open Regatta - be at SLSC at 9am on Saturday August 4th.  It is open to sailors of all classes.

Saturday evening is the Annual Civic Holiday BBQ and Street Dance - Food, music and dancing begin at 6pm at the Park.  The History Project will also have the Doll Cottage on display with tickets available.  Tickets are free.  Donations appreciated.

Rev. Doug Norris, the incumbent at Rosedale United Church (Toronto) , will be conducting Sunday's service at 10:30am at the Sturgeon Point Union Church.  A reminder to bring your donations for the Salvation Army food drive.

On Sunday afternoon at the Public Dock at 2pm are the Swimming and Canoeing Races. 

On Monday, August 6th, at Swananowa at 10:00am are the Running and Novelty Races.  A reminder that the races are run by age group starting with the youngest and that they move quickly, so early is better.  If you miss giving your contribution to the Sally Ann food drive on Sunday, they will be collecting again.

The History Project will also have the 2nd Street Heritage Displays on show.  If you have any pictures, there is still the opportunity to have them included.

Look forward to seeing everyone!
