John's No Frills Continues To Give Back In A Big Way

John's No Frills' philanthropic ideologies and generosity has once again produced almost a $3000 donation to Shelburne's local Food Bank, The Shepherd's Cupboard. Typically in cold weather and on special occasions and holidays, the food bank receives much needed donations. A gentle reminder from those John's No Frills shoppers who happily donate during the summer is to realize help is needed all year round. 

John's No Frills also points out with pride, that it has donated over $102, 000 worth of free food with their very popular points rewards program to their shoppers. For those unfamiliar, this money saving program used properly can help families save money especially when used over expensive holiday celebrations.

How Old Is Canada Really?
Click image (L) For Video by CBC  

What was happening in Sports 150 years ago? Click image below for article featured in Chronicles of Canada from 1867.

Why Is July 1 The Day We Celebrate Canada's Birthday? Well, 150 years ago in 1867, a lot was happening around the world and in a book called the Chronicles of Canada, by Chronicle Publications, news of the day was carefully captured within its pages. Turns out, July 1st is not actually Canada's Birthday, but rather  an official proclamation by the Queen of England, marking a national holiday. Politics is older than most countries and this holiday, was very specific as to whom could partake as Canada was becoming provincially united.
