Senior kindergarten students at Lambton Centennial wave the flag given to them by the Petrolia Lions to help them learn about citizenship and to celebrate their graduation to Grade One.

The Town of Petrolia is planning a big party for Canada’s 150th birthday and for the first time in years, there will be a Canada Day Parade.
The town has three days of events planned for the Canada weekend including a concert on June 30.
There will also be music, kids games and food at Greenwood Park during Canada Day.
And at 1 pm, the downtown will come alive with a parade.
Laurissa Ellsworth, director of marketing for the town, says it has been at least 15 years since the town hosted a parade to mark Canada’s birthday.
The town is accepting applications for floats now.
There will also be the traditional fireworks at night.
On July 2, there will be a kids’s fun day which will include a fishing derby and the Central Lambton Optimists Rubber Duck Race.
