Canada 150 / Burlington Junction logo unveiling Saturday 4/30!

PhotoEditor-1461863676847In one of the first displays of the Canada 150 logo in the greater Burlington area, the Friends of Freeman Station welcomed Ariana Cuvin, the designer of the logo, for the unveiling.  Ariana’s was the winning design from over 300 entries in a nation-wide competition.  The distinctive graphic emblem celebrates the 150th anniversary of Canada’s confederation, and year-long events will culminate on 1 July 2017, which coincides with the FOFS target date for completing the renovation of the historic 1906 Burlington Junction Railway Station.  FOFS applied for and was licensed to display the Canada 150 logo by the federal government during the coming year.  Thanks to Alan for his considerable efforts to make these arrangements.
