Interview with John McIntyre, at his residence, January 31, 2015.
John McIntyre reflects on the annual Lions Club Victoria Day celebrations.
John: I mean there were things that happened annually that were big. When I was growing up the 24th of May, Victoria Day weekend was actually bigger, in Aurora, than the first of July, and so I remember going over to the Town Park, and that’s where the fireworks would be right in the centre of the old part of town at Wells Street. And the Lions Club always had a small midway and rides and that sort of thing. So that was always something that was really exciting that said, you know, summer can’t be too far away. And so, Victoria Day, the 24th of May weekend was a really big, big event in town.
