There was a large turn-out today, May 8, for the annual Walk for Harmony.

The walk started with opening remarks in Boitanio Park and ended in Spirit Square on Oliver Street where prizes were presented to students for the multiculturalism poster contest. Music was played, prayers were said and a wonderful lunch of ethnic diversity was served. The multiculturalism poster contest grand prize of a mountain bike donated by Canadian Tire was presented to Alexandra Weiand, a Grade 7 student at Mountview elementary. Four scooters and other prizes were also awarded to poster contest winners. All along the route the posters were on display in local businesses.
