Canada Day 2012?
I spent Canada Day (July 1st) on the grounds of the Sharon National Historic Site and Museum here in East Gwillimbury. The weather was perfect! The above photo is of local actors who this summer are presenting an interactive play about the beginnings and demise of the Children of Peace, plain folk of former Quakers.
Not really a temple, but a meeting place for the Children of Peace who believed in peace, equality and social justice .
Dress code 2012?
Many were dressed in red and white, the colours of the Canadian flag.
Proud to be Canadian
Good old-fashioned fun
Which key will unlock the Blue Jays tickets?
The War of 2012 - tug of war, that is
YAY, CAKE! A great way to end the celebration

Looks like a great day! Love that little guy in the hat. It's almost as big as he is. :)
Sad to say, but I didn't know of the Sharon Temple, so I googled it to get more info. Thanks! A great post!
i like that cake and the tug of war i ave not seen in many years. i love seeing people dressed in period dress, that first photo could have been taken 100 years ago, except of course in sepia with a big flash
I like the cleverly created Canadian flag cake. Celebrating our hope for a peaceful world is great. This is the first I’ve heard of the Children of Peace, however. They seem like a complicated organization and I’m delighted we are preserving those memories from the past. The tug-of-war game looks like a riot. And the tiny tot T-shirt is adorable. :)
that little t-shirt is adorable. :)
Happy National celebration! o, what a cake! and the baby is so cute with that "1st Canada day"!
Obviously it was a big hit and a fine day. Love the photos of the little children!
Looks so festive & fun - and a beautiful day to boot! I love all the festive red and didn't know about the Sharon Historic Site, so cool!
The cupcakes and cake not only look tasty, but a pretty clever looking flag. It looks like a good time was had by all.

Believing in peace, equality and social justice? No wonder the weirdos died out!
I remember visiting Sharon temple when I was young - I grew up on a farm between Queensville & Keswick. I found your blog while looking for Girl Guide info and happened upon your May 2011 post with the mural. I'm going to follow your blog now - thanks for the memories!
It looks as if you found a great place for celebrating Canada Day. Not only does this museum look interesting, it looks like there was a lot of fun activities as well.
Looks like an enjoyable holiday!
How great is that cake flag? Wow! What a lovely patriotic day for all concerned.

Such a beautiful world!

Absolutely wonderful photographs! "Peace, equality and social justice" - noble ideals for sure. A fun-filled post with lots of food for thought too.
