Sunday, June 18th

Waterloo Region is fortunate to have so many emergency responders who put their lives on the line everyday to keep us safe and protected. We’d like to honour them on Father’s Day by hosting a family friendly event that highlights their contributions and thanks them for the work they are doing on our behalf. We are planning a number of activities and events to celebrate their abilities and teach families the value of these diligent men and women.

You’re invited to join us for this family-friendly event.
