Get ready to be part of history Saugeen Shores! The Saugeen Shores Kin Club recently donated the necessary funds to the Saugeen Shores Celebrates committee to purchase a specialty GIANT commemorative Canadian flag which features a white signature border. This border allows members of the public to sign the flag borders without disrespecting or damaging the Canadian Flag. The commemorative flag will be flown on both July 1st and 2nd after being paraded through Saugeen Shores and being raised on July 1st as part of the Canada Day Ceremonies.

"The Saugeen Shores Kin Club is proud to partner with the Saugeen Shores Celebrates Canada’s 150th committee for this grand event, to be held on July 1st this year," says Christine Cooper, President of Saugeen Shores Kin Club. "The flags white borders, before being sewn onto the giant 25 x 50 foot flag will be brought, by Saugeen Shores Kin Club representatives, to all of the local Saugeen Shores schools and seniors centers, and to other  'signature' community events for the public to add their names and be part of our local history."
