Yarrow Days has been reimagined for 2020 due to the disruptions of COVID-19.
“This is an alternate way to safely celebrate small town living on June 6 and June 7,” said organizers of Yarrow Days in a release.
The theme for 2020 is ‘Yarrow – Together In Spirit’ but the events will not feature large gatherings.
“All residents encouraged to decorate their homes and to enjoy this year’s celebrations of Yarrow Days from their own yards.”
Activities include a scavenger hunt, food drive, and a community supper with everyone joining in from their curbs and backyards.
Saturday’s video presentations will be hosted by Master of Ceremonies Grant Sigaty.
A Yarrow Scavenger Hunt will be underway June 6-7 with entry forms at yarrowcommunity.com or Yarrow Community Happenings Facebook page, with 13 local prizes to be won.
Winners will be announced Sunday at 5 p.m.
Drive-thru food drive Saturday June 6, 9 a.m. to noon: Drive-thru collection at Canadian Reformed Church at 42285 Yarrow Central. Non-perishable food items for Salvation Army Food Bank. Cash donations in envelopes please will go to Ruth and Naomi’s Mission.
Bring your BBQ to the curb and have supper with the rest of the town in our own yards. Watch Master of Ceremonies Grant Sigaty via live stream (video link on yarrowcommunity.com and Yarrow Community Happenings Facebook page). Special guests will be providing video presentations including the national anthem performed by the MEI Screaming Eagles.
Tribute at 7 p.m. is shaping up to be the “noisiest” tribute to essential services workers.
