Official Bath Canada Day 2018 video


Many thanks to our Entertainment Coordinator, Dave Wreggitt for the tremendous effort he put into assembling top notch musicians for our 2018 celebrations.

Dave, with help from Pam and Sean Melia, videotaped, edited and worked with Roswell Sound Studios to produce this video. We think it captures the essence of July 1st celebrations in Bath.

Big thanks to all of the volunteers, coordinators, sponsors, vendors, and musicians who made this another year to remember.

Special Recognition Award

Each year the Bath Canada Day Committee honours an individual, a group or a business whose dedication to the community makes Bath a better place to live.

In 2018 we honour the work of the Bath and District Lions Club for the many projects they undertake every year that contribute to the health and well-being of the residents of the area. Vision screening, the waterfront playground, the Christmas Baskets and their support for Bath Canada Day – all of these efforts are valued by Bath residents.

And that’s BEFORE they gave us a cheque for $925 !

Joe Hudacin presented the award to Don Jones, President of the Bath and District Lion’s Club.

In 1980, Joe was the councilor for Bath and in that capacity attended the founding meeting on the Bath Lions Club.
