It was Canada’s 150th anniversary on July 1, and many people met at the Smoky River Tourism building in Falher to mark the occasion.
Sandy Primeau, one of the organizers, and the Red Hatters led in singing ‘O Canada’ at noon precisely, ‘This Land is Your Land’, as well as other songs.
The building was attired in provincial, municipal and Canadian flags.
Hamburgers and hot dogs were served, courtesy of Geoff Smithdorf working the barbecue, as well as a Canada Day cake.
T-shirts, bookmark rules, towels and thunder sticks were for sale.
Look for a couple of videos of the Red Hatters singing, on the Express’ Facebook page.
