What do these people have in common?

Allan Beatty, Jim Stevenson, Kym Fairfax, Dave Hall, Virginia Thompson, Marjorie Meban, Paulette Batchilder, Sandra Steinhouse, Mary Ann Gibbons and Ann Myers have all volunteered to help make the Bath Canada Day 2015 the best yet. Thanks so much for stepping forward.

If you have a couple of hours to spare, please let us know by emailing bathcanadaday@live.ca.

For example, you could help:

  • judge the Children’s Pet Contest or the Kids Bike/Srike/Stroller/Wagon Contest
  • judge the parade floats
  • greet visitors for an hour or two at the Welcome Booth in Centenial Park
  • Al Beatty mark out vendor spots on June 30th
  • exhibitors get settled in Centennial Park early on Canada Day
  • by charging up your drill and helping put up signs prior to Canada Day
  • marshall the parade at Finkle Shore Park. This is fun because you get to talk to everyone who is in the parade!

Gail and Keith Heywood








Each year citizens of Bath are invited to nominate a person(s) to be the Bath Canada Day Parade Grand Marshall.  This year, by popular demand, we are proud to announce that Gail and Keith Heywood will be the 2015 Parade Marshalls.

Like many others who have been so honoured, Gail and Keith have brought their love of Bath and their considerable skills to projects and organizations that work diligently to make the Village a great place to live and work.

Their initial volunteer commitment was to the Bath Community Revitalization Project during its earliest phases. Gail was Secretary of the committee and subsequently chaired the Marketing Sub-Committee.

The Bath Museum of Loyalist Township had been championed by Helen and Bruce Talbot for 20 years until ill health forced Bruce to leave the committee.  Karen MacKenzie stepped in and, together with Joe Hudacin and Gail, established its Constitution and By-Laws and oversaw the move to its present location.  In spite of his health issues, Keith continues to be a member of the Executive and an active consultant for the committee.

For the past five years Gail and Joe Hudacin have co-chaired the Bath Canada Day Committee. She has spent countless hours fund-raising,organizing the Vendor’s Market and Centennial Park activities and attending to the myriad of details that make an event like Canada Day a success. She retired from the Committee after Canada Day 2014 and it has taken three people to do what she did so cheerfully for so long.

In all of these endeavors Keith has been by her side. His woodworking skills have been invaluable in designing and building displays and signboards for the Museum, for Bath Community Revitalization projects and for Canada Day.

The Bath Canada Day Committee is proud to acknowledge the work of these two dedicated volunteers.




Thanks, Gail
