A total of 28 friends of Habitat helped celebrate Canada Day by participating in our award-winning entry in the Canada Day Parade in Courtenay.
They walked. They danced. They sang. And they all had fun helping us earn the prize for ‘Runner Up – Best Organization Float’!
Special thanks to:
Our corporate sponsor – The Mortgage Centre – Your Island Mortgage Team.
Courtenay Mazda – for the free use of a truck to pull the float.
Our volunteer float builder – Doug Goodwin
Antique car driver – Jack Dempsy, Volunteer John Newman for driving the truck that pulled the float, and our Build Coordinator, Brian Woods, for driving the Builder Bus.
Our Comox Valley Volunteer Manager Terri Perrin who showed great effort and enthusiasm in coordinating our parade entry and managing everyone who helped out.
And to all of the individuals who walked with us!
It was fabulous to have three of our homeowner families join in this community awareness effort, and to see so many children having fun with us. Thanks to Tally B., Darryl C., Lisa T. and their children for their participation.
We will be using the same float in the Nautical Days Parade in Comox on August 7th and we welcome you to join us!
