Arundel Community Festival

Loisirs Arundel was proud to host a special Canada day activity in honour of the 50th anniversary of the Canadian flag, and the co-creator of the Canadian Flag: Mr. John Ross Matheson, who was born in Arundel! We were very happy to have his grandson, John Matheson, come and join us for the day and share some anecdotes of his grandfather's contribution to the flag and his early life in Arundel. CBC's breakaway show got in the mix with an interview with John Matheson. Here is the link to hear the interview: CBC Breakaway Interview with John Matheson. We also have a video of the flag ceremonies made for us by Dean Brisson
