summer approaches we have two community events, one in June and the other
in July. On June 14th the annual Highland Creek
Heritage Day Festival will be held once again this year in the Village on
Old Kingston Road. There will be a parade starting at the Legion and
proceeding over the Lawson Road bridge and into the Village. The parade
gets underway at 11:00 a.m. This yearsí festival will feature many
activities for children and adults. The Heritage Day Festival is
co-sponsored by CCRA. Plan to attend and support this wonderful community
event. Festival details can be found on their website at
other community event is our annual summer concert series being held on
July 6th, 13th and 20th at the Port
Union Community Centre starting at 7:00 p.m. This year we have managed to
book some outstanding musical groups for all 3 Sunday evenings including
the Scarborough Concert Band on July 6th, Thoze Guyz on July 13nd
and Climax Jazz Band on July 20th. This is a wonderful way to spend
a relaxing summer evening listening to some great musical entertainment at
no charge. These concerts are co-sponsored by CCRA.
