5th Annual Canada Day Event: Saturday, June 12, 2010

O Canada!  Our home and native land.  Those words tug at our heartstrings, no matter how long we've been in glorious San Diego.  It's that time of year again.  You know what we mean - Dust off your maple leaf, unfurl your red and white flags, grab your toque and get off the chesterfield to join CanDiego for the most awesome party of the year!  Celebrate Canada's 143rd birthday a few weeks early in San Diego!   CanDiego is having its annual Canada Day party on Saturday, June 12, 2010 at the Coronado Cays Yacht Club (www.ccyc.org ) starting at 5:30 pm.  This is CanDiego's premier event of the year.  The CCYC is an amazing venue.  We can hang out in the spacious main dining room, the bar, or the patio.  There's even a small grassy area for kids to play games and a swing set.  All this with a beautiful view of the harbour.  If you wish, you can even sail right up to the facility instead of driving there.  Meet lots of Canadians and friends of Canada.  Bring the kids, too!  Food will be available for purchase including hamburgers, veggie burgers, fries, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, Panini sandwiches, and of course, beer.  This is one party you won't want to miss, eh!
