A Special Thank You to Morven Construction

MorvenEach year the Bath Canada Day Committee acknowledges a company, group or individual for their support of Canada Day. This year we want to recognise the ongoing contribution of Morven Construction Limited. Every year since 1993, Morven Construction has brought a flatbed truck to be our stage in Centennial Park, traffic cones to help ensure that Academy Street is maintained as an alternate route through the Village and made a financial donation toward our programming.

Thank you to Rene Doornekamp for beginning this tradition and  Murray Aitken, the new owner for continuing it.

Kids Bike Rodeo

Bath Bike Rodeo: Saturday, June 24th,  Bath Public School 

10:30: Registration

11 am: Start

With the summer holidays at hand, the Bike and Trike Rodeo is an excellent chance for your kids/grand kids/nieces/nephews/wards to get their trikes and bikes safety checked, helmet fit checked and learn or review the rules of the road. These activities are followed by a Skills Challenge where the participants apply the rules and get feedback.

There is no entry fee but parents/grandparents/or guardians are encouraged to attend as signed permission is required. Ministry of Transport of Ontario material will be made available to facilitate reinforcement of the rules after the fact.

There will be extra bikes and helmets in various sizes available for those who might want to join in.

Village Pizza is providing slices for all the participants so it would be helpful for our planning to have an idea of how many people are coming. Shoot us an email at bathcanadaday@live.ca or call 613-352-5670.

We will send on the registration materials and a PDF of the Ministry of Transport Bicycle Information.

This program is a collaborative effort by the L. & A. Community Bike Shop, the Napanee OPP Community Policing Program and the Bath Canada Day Committee.

Looking forward to seeing you .
