It looks like there’ll be a full slate of activities at Nakusp’s Canada Day celebration this year.
The board that runs the event had enough volunteers show up to a recent meeting to plan for more than just a parade and some cake.
“We only had one person show up for our first planning meeting,” says Nakusp Events Society member Stephanie Dieterman. “This time there was 10. So we definitely have more people on hand to help get the things done we want to.”
With the extra bodies, the parade, the pancake breakfast and the bands will definitely happen, says Dieterman. The extra volunteers will help find more people or a group to manage the games for kids and other ancillary activities on July 1.
“I’m definitely more confident we’ll have the kids games, we’re going to try to do water sports, there’s definitely going to be a bocce tournament, so it’s definitely happening,” she says.
But they still need more volunteers to do things like flag for the parade, and set up other events to make the celebration last right up until the evening’s fireworks.
There’s another meeting of the society later this month to attract more volunteers. Stay tuned for details on the Nakusp Event Society’s or the Nakusp Communicator Facebook pages.
