Canada Day cake from Sobeys

Innisfail Legion Pipe Band led the March of Canadians parade and then provided a brief concert at the pier prior to singing of O Canada and cutting of the birthday cake.

The colour party of the Royal Canadian Legion, Sylvan Lake Br. 212, was augmented with the addition of an Air Force Officer Cadet, two Air Force cadets and an Army Cadet for the March of Canadians. The march went from the Legion to the cenotaph and then back to Centennial (50th) Street and on to the pier.

After the March of Canadians, it was time to cut and distribute a huge 4’ x 8’ birthday cake prepared by Sobeys. Part of that task fell to MLA Kerry Towle, Mayor Susan Samson, and RCMP officers Cst. Michael Lee, Cst. Nelson Johnson, Sgt. Michelle Boutin, Cpl. Kevin Halwa and Cst. Gordon Marshall.

Within an hour the cake was totally gone, attesting to the crowd of people on the pier.

The Rotary Club of Sylvan Lake was in charge of events on the pier (with financial assistance from the Department of Heritage Canada and Town of Sylvan Lake). This was Rotary’s tenth year organizing activities after taking over from the Spirit of Sylvan Lake committee.
