FOCUS - JULY 2018 33 The residents of Canterbury contin- ue to celebrate the past while looking ahead to the future. On June 9, resi- dents enjoyed a parade that circled the Canterbury Community twice. The parade captured memories of activi- ties that have taken place throughout Canterbury’s first 20 years. Leading off the parade was a group of seventeen line dancers who stopped to perform each time they came to a crowd of onlookers. Following close behind were bridge players all “decked” out in card themed costumes. The “Knitwits”, a group of knitters that gather weekly, joined in the festivities as did mem- bers of the Canterbury Chorus who have performed each year at Christ- mas. Other participants included the Aqua Fit Ladies who hit the pool three times a week and Power Walkers who exercise five mornings each week. The Canterbury Players, who have staged several original musicals through the years, were recalled by paraders in costume from “Showdown at Dry Gulch” and “The Night Chicago Died.” Canterbury’s many golfers were represented by a golf float towed behind a lawn tractor. An ATV with helmeted riders was a reminder of Canterbury’s car rallies.TheCanterburySilverDragons, who raised more than $100,000 for cancer during their ten years on the water, were represented by several paddlers who were walking, riding in a rat rod or on a hay wagon. Following the parade, close to 200 gathered in the Canterbury club- house for hot dogs and cupcakes. At the time of writing in early June, more than $25,000 had been raised for the Hospice. They were reminded of upcoming opportunities for Canterburians to help raise funds for the Oak Ridges Hospice.
