Senior prom king and queen sought to lead Mapleton’s Canada 150 parade

by Patrick Raftis

MAPLETON - Planning continues for the township’s celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, set for Canada Day, July 1 in Drayton.

Economic development officer Martin Bohl reports fundraising efforts are “progressing well” and the committee is getting support form community groups.
“The parade is coming together, sponsors are coming forward, so kudos so the whole community on that effort,” said Bohl.
Councillor Lori Woodham, who has been designated as Mapleton’s “Canada Day Champion,” said sponsorships will help with the goal of having “activities for the whole family,” while collecting only voluntary donations at the event.  
Woodham said a parade is scheduled to start of 4pm and will travel through downtown Drayton to the fairgrounds at 49 Elm Street, where activities will take place.
Organizers are seeking the township’s “most senior prom king and queen” to be marshals and children are encouraged to decorate bicycles for the parade or walk in the parade with their pets.
Euchre and other card games and a photo booth will be part of the fun.
A community photo is planned so attendees are being encouraged to wear red and white to the Canada Day festivities.
The event will culminate with fireworks at dusk.
“It definitely should be a fun day,” said Woodham.
Updates on Mapleton’s Canada 150 event will be posted on the township’s website and social media outlets.
