Canada Day Parade!

Yesterday I was thrilled to be apart of the first ever Club 21 Canada Day Parade Float!

With the help of a tractor & wagon from one of our farm families, some strategically placed Canadian flags and a few not so subtle Down Syndrome Awareness signs, we loaded up some of our kids and families and joined the festivities as we made our way around the Square in Goderich for the annual Canada Day Parade!

The float was a great success and more importantly, we all had a fantastic time!

Our message to the crowd... "don't DIS my ABILITY!"

and "more ALIKE than DIFFERENT"

  1. Jennifer, you say your signs were “not so subtle”, well, for what it’s worth – I think they were perfect, along with the float. It was the best in the parade, had the best message along with the most smiles! Way to go! Down Syndrome children/adults are a blessing to the rest of us in this world. I for one, am so glad, to see that they are getting a voice, to remind others of that fact!!!

    • Thanks so much Tamara! We did have a blast. We could actually see people reading the signs and start to clap. It was great to get the support!
      Glad you liked the float. 🙂
