Wet Canada Day in Rockland


Like everywhere else in Eastern Ontario, the rain poured down on Rockland for Canada Day. So city officials took the party inside. City staff and volunteers from various service clubs set up a bandstand inside the Jean-Marc Lalonde Arena located next to Parc Simon, the usual site for Canada Day activities.They then surrounded the bands- tand with inflatable slides and other games for the children to enjoy. Upstairs in themezzanine, the Clarence- Rockland Fire Department served up its usual pancake full breakfast, with the Gre- non Your Independent Grocers donating all the food supplies. Following a short welcome ceremony for families gathered inside the arena for Canada Day activities, Fanfare, Rockland’s community band, kicked off the afternoon with an instrumental selection. Various other groups provided entertain- ment during the afternoon until it was time for the evening fireworks show. Each year as part of Canada Day fes- tivities, officials for the City of Clarence- Rockland present Community Excellence Awards to local individuals or groups who have distinguished themselves over the past year in athletics, the arts, community service, and other fields. This year’s recipients of certificates in- cluded Josiane Pozzebon of Bourget, a member of the silver-medal-winning Team CanadaWomen’s U18 squad, at theWomen’s World Hockey Championships in Buffalo, NY, U.S.A., at the start of 2015; the champi- onship year for Les Couguars senior boys volleyball squad of L’Escale, comprising Gabriel Rousselle, Alexandre Bouchard, Stéphane Gagnon, Joshua Capina, Jacob Demers-Dallaire, Mathieu Quenneville, Ra- phael Payant, Xavier Demers, Jordan Legros, DylanDion, and their coaches, Jonathan Roy and Éliane Houle-Demers, with the Prescott- Russell and EOSSAA titles to their credit and a bronze-medal finish at the provincials; pentathlete Garnett Stevens, named to Team Canada in 2014; singer Gabrielle Goulet,
