Celebrate Canada Grant


The Bath Canada Day Commitee is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a Celebrate Canada Grant by the Department of Canadian Heritage. This funding is a significant and very welcome addition to our budget.

Ecumenical Service, June 30th

An Ecumenical Service will be held on Sunday, June 30th at 4:30 pm in St. John’s Memorial Hall in Bath. All are welcome.






The speaker will be the Rt. Reverend Michael Oulton, Anglican Bishop of Ontario. Reverend Oulton and his family have close ties to Bath and area.  He served parishes in Amherstview and Belleville until he was consecrated as Bishop in 2011. His wife, Jeanie Oulton, is a United Church minister who until recently was the chaplin at the Millhaven Penitentiary.  The Oulton family lived on Ham Road from 1998 until 2010.

Thank you to Jack Donaghy for spearheading this event.

Property Decorating Contest

Given the great sense of community pride that took place last year, the Bath Community Revitalization Committee (BCRC) will hold another property decorating contest to celebrate the Bicentennial of the War of 1812.
The War lasted 2 years and 8 months from June 18, 1812 – February 18, 1815.
Properties must be ready to be judged no later than noon on Saturday, June 29th.
An Award will be presented to the residential and business property owner that best depicts a red, white and blue theme.
Entries that pick up on the Canada Day theme of “marine heritage” will gain extra points in the judging.
The winner will be presented the Award on Canada Day at the Official Ceremonies in Centenial Park at 2:30 pm
Application forms are available at Heritage Point Gifts and Antiques as of June 8th, 2013.
