Downtown WINS Canada Flag Challenge!!

Dear BIA Members,

My apologies for the repeat email, the photo appeared correct before sending and once received it was upside down.

A big THANK YOU to all the businesses who showed your Canadian pride by hanging the Canadian flags in your windows for Canada Day! Oakville MPP Kevin Flynn, challenged the Bronte BIA, Kerr Village BIA and Downtown Oakville BIA to see how many businesses would hang flags in their window... and for the first time in the friendly challenge's 11 year history, we won!!  A great demonstration of community spirit and collaboration amongst everyone - great job all!  On Thursday July 16, MPP Flynn presented the BIA with an Ontario flag in recognition and thanks of our participation.

Mr. Flynn also randomly selected the business Marci at 103 Dunn Street from all of the participating businesses to have lunch at the Legislative Assembly with Oakville MPP Kevin Flynn.  Congratulations Marcia!

Our thanks to MPP Flynn for organising this fun challenge and encouraging us to show our Canadian pride!
