Nearly all of the recipients of the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award and Sovereign’s Medal joined Kootenay-Columbia member of Parliament Wayne Stetski during the Canada Day festivities at Centennial Park, which also included children’s activities, as well as a performance by Velle Weitman and her band.

Earlier in the day, Canyon Park hosted events, including a demonstration by the Creston Valley Horse Association’s drill team, a horseshoe tournament, a demonstration by the Cowboy Mounters Shooters and a cake cutting, for which Stetski joined Creston Mayor Ron Toyota and regional district Area B director Tanya Wall.
