Canada Day weekend wet but still packed with fun for Canada Day in EasternOntario but folks in Prescott-Russell still managed to have a fun-filled weekend celebrating both the 150th birthday of the country and also the annual Ottawa River Festival. Off-and-on thundershowers forced or- ganizers of the long weekend activities in various communities of Prescott-Russell,


to scramble to arrange for indoor venues wherever and whenever possible. Commu- nity centres, arenas, libraries and schools became weekend shelters for many child- ren’s activities and special exhibits. Along the Ottawa River in Rockland, Wendover, Lefaivre, L’Orignal, Hawkesbury, and Chute-à-Blondeau, volunteers with the annual Ottawa River Festival rearranged locations and setups for some venues where possible. For the most part, the annual regional celebrations of riverside community life flowed along as usual with special events like the Sass Jordan concert in Rockland, blessed with a sunny break in the weather to allow fans of the Juno Award-winning singer to enjoy listening to her rock in Rockland. The annual Rockland Ford Classics Mus- tang Poker Run rolled out on schedule, with dozens of Mustangs touring along the highways and byways of Prescott-Russell, to both raise public awareness and funds for breast cancer research and treatment.
