The community of Sheenboro gathered together Saturday evening to celebrate the town’s beginnings, and dedicate a monument to the area’s early settlers.
Holding a mass at St. Paul the Hermit Church, followed by the monument unveiling, dance and dinner, over 200 people came out to take part in the Canada 150 celebration.
“We were going to do it on Canada Day,” said event organizer Lorna Agnesi. “But we decided to wait for a quiet time.”
