Canada Day - Graduation Party @ The Jordans

Friday, June 30th, 5:00pm ( a slight amendment has been made: we will no longer require a Canadian Content portion... you may wimpout on this aspect if you so choose*^)As per our last Canadian celebration, there will be a 'Canadian-content' portion of the evening. Come in your RED & WHITE, byob, mabye a salad or some other munchie. We will have burgers and hot dogs on the bbq. Feel free to bring a sleeping bag and crash overnight. We will also have the pool set up, so tell the kids to bring a bathing suit and towel.

Dear St. Hermanites (especially those young ones who love "The Hockey Sweater"),

I will miss the opportunity to read the hockey sweater at the traditional Canada gathering at the Jordan's. If there is anybody there who can pull off a good Quebecois accent, I hereby charge that person with the duty of reading "The Hockey Sweater" a la Jean Chretien for the edification of the faithful.

How I miss those soirees.

I bet Jean-Claude could pull off a decent french accent. Ya think? It might sound a little fake coming from him, but...
I actually have this Friday off, which is pretty much a miracle. So, assuming I can get myself out there, I will be there with bells on! Canadian bells of course. Instead of a chime, they're ring: "eh, eh, eh!"

tragically hip, arrogant worms, bruce cockburn, stompin' tom, etc.

Stacy said...

People complained about Canadian content at a Canada Day celebration? What? Bah Humbug!

but let it be known that the wimpouts, while brushing teeth in the morning might detect a slightly darker, more angled brow.
