Last year in a CBC poll, the canoe was named one of the Seven Wonders of Canada. To celebrate, the good folks at The Canadian Canoe Museum threw a party on the Thursday before Canada Day.
This year, we'd like to keep the celebrations going. There's going to be another party at the Lift Lock in Peterborough on Thursday, June 26th and this time around we're calling it National Canoe Day (celebrating the Wonders of the Canoe) hoping to lay the groundwork for an annual event during Celebrate Canada! (the 11 days leading up to July 1st).
Last year, there were people across Canada who heard about the Peterborough celebration and wrote in with details of things canoe they were doing to join in on the fun. This year, we're actively inviting all Canadians, wherever you may be, to join in on that day (or during that week) by doing something cool with your canoe. The Canadian Canoe Museum has set up a web site to keep track of photos and stories of all the things that will be happening, hoping to build momentum for citizen-driven designation of June 26th as an official National Canoe Day.
Hope you'll consider joining in on the fun to celebrate the Canoe as a Wonder of Canada. For more information, you can check out The Canadian Canoe Museum Website (www.canoemuseum.net) or call 1-888-34-CANOE for details.
