The year 2020 has given us all a lot to reflect upon. Canada Day is going to look a little different this time around, but there remains so much to celebrate. We want to share our enthusiasm for the community and region in which we live and work.
When we started DKI-CRCS more than 40 years ago, our founders Cris and Robyn Douglas knew from the start the importance of building community. Despite long, tiring hours putting homes and businesses right after disasters, the Douglas’s would find the energy for volunteering and community involvement. Working together in our community has been a big part of what defines Canada, and we’ve always felt that journey starts right at home.
Since those early years, we’ve celebrated our own landmarks, and important dates in the history of Canada as well. Just like our community, our company, and our family, Canada has grown and changed over time. We’re excited to see where this process leads next, and to play our own role in contributing to Canada’s next steps.
In the meantime, we encourage you to mark July 1st in a fun and responsible way. Follow the directives of local authorities when planning who will join you for your celebrations.
This year, the region of Durham has put together a different sort of celebration so that everyone can take part from wherever they’re celebrating. The Region has pulled together some exciting performances, musical acts, and even a chance to learn how to make Beavertails in your own home!
We’d also encourage you to reflect on how you can help build your own community at the local level, and what you can do to contribute to building Canada into the future. We continue to volunteer our time to causes close to our hearts, and we encourage you to consider the same. Now, as we are all forced to remain apart, we believe that community is more important than ever. Though we can’t gather in person, we can be creative in how we show we care.
In whichever way you choose to spend your time on July 1st, know that we’re celebrating along with you. We look forward to a time when we can enjoy our community and country in person once again.
Happy Canada Day!
