The North Okanagan Canada Day Society are hyping up the big day.
The organizers of Vernon’s first virtual birthday bash for the country published a video to its Facebook page featuring Shaughnessy Music’s rendition of the national anthem, with special guest beauty queen Samantha Sewell signing along in American Sign Language.
NOCDS gave a nod to Safeway in the Vernon Square Mall for its continued support.
“If you ever wonder how so much cake is made possible — thank Safeway,” the June 22 post reads.
“First 150 people in Safeway on July 1 will receive a special Canada Day cupcake.”
