Canada Day in Maryhill 2018

Narrated Wagon Tour

Canada Day in Maryhill hosted by the Maryhill Historical Society was a scorcher of a hot day   But that didn’t stop the many people who took the time during the day to stop in to say hello, enjoy some food, visit  and sign the guest book.

Activities began at 11 a.m. with  Historical Society president George Isley welcoming the many people.  We were pleased to have M.P. Harold Albrecht, MPP Mike Harris Jr. and Murray Martin , Ward 3 Woolwich Township Councillor who give greetings and also comment  on our great land of Canada.

Thank you to the  Maryhill Knights of Columbus for supplying the pulled pork, hot dogs, potato salad and coleslaw. There was also lots of  bottled  cold water and  a canteen of lemonade.  The  chocolate and white cakes were  also enjoyed.

Music was supplied by Frank Rider and Peter Zettle with the  visitors singing and clapping along to the songs.  The Maryhill Volunteer Fire Department and the Ariss Maryhill Lions Club had volunteers and displays set up.   There was also several  tables with antiques on display.

The afternoon consisted of crafts for the children and there were two narrated horse drawn tours of the community, with the first tour taking place at 11:30 a.m..  People also took the time to visit inside  the Edward Halter Home.
