A message from Deputy Mayor Ian Chard:
Last fall, our Communities in Bloom Committee reccomended to Council that we approve the idea of putting up 200 new Canadian flags throughout the township as part of our Canada 150 celebrations, plus the 50 or so already put up in Shedden and Fingal.
Following Councils unanimous approval, CIB got busy fund raising to make this idea a reality.
Hydro One approval was obtained, the money was raised and our Fire Chief suggested that he approach his volunteer firefighters about installing the flags on the hydro poles.
Most everyone in Southwold has seen the result of this work as our Canadian flag now proudly flies accross our township.
Last night, firefighters Brian Fife, Rene Coenen and Chris Kampers installed the last 14 flags in Talbotville.
Our sincere thanks to everyone who made this happen.
Deputy Mayor Ian Chard, June 30, 2017
