Canada Day 2002
There were two major Canada Day events in Terrace on Monday. The 4th Annual Terrace Professional Firefighters Pancake Breakfast in the morning, which was a huge success. Then, beginning at noon, the Picnic in the Park at Heritage Park Museum. This event too, was well attended.
The stats for the Firefighters Pancake Breakfast are impressive. About 30 volunteers cooked for and fed more than 1,000 guests and raised $3,366.08 for the BC Professional Fire Fighters' Burn Fund. That's $533 better than last year, and the money will certainly be well used for a good cause. The BC Professional Fire Fighters' Burn Fund is dedicated to burn prevention, burn survivor support, and burn recovery programs in B.C.
A few bonuses at the breakfast were safety awareness displays, plenty of draws to enter (winners listed below), static displays such as an ambulance and the Terrace Water Rescue boat, fire truck rides for the kids, and best of all from an overall perspective was the Thornhill Junior Secondary Stage Band who provided background music and raised money for the Dare to Dream Foundation.

The Dare to Dream Foundation supports the Grade-7 music program and is working on doing the same thing for the Grade-6 program. These music programs fell to budget cuts in 1998.
Though we're still waiting for information on the Picnic at Heritage Park, the park was closed Tuesday and Wednesday, we do have good things to report. There was a steady flow of people, as those that were leaving were almost instantly replaced by others just arriving. So it was a busy place, yet still a relaxing place to spend a few hours. There was live music, free balloons, face painting, stilts, who many actually mastered, and, of course, the museum itself which is always a pleasure to visit no matter how often you've been there.
Draw winners are listed below, as are proud sponsors of the Pancake Breakfast. And we've got 42 photos for you as a record of the day's events.
We believe you'll enjoy our Photo Essay best in the SlideShow Mode. If you have a slow connection you might find the slide show runs a little slow the first time through. Once the photos have been downloaded once, though, subsequent runs of the show will be more satisfying. If you don't want to wait, however, click on Essay at the top of the page.
