Here’s to being good neighbours!!!

The Canada–United States border is the longest international border in the world. The terrestrial boundary (including small portions of maritime boundaries on the Atlantic, Pacific, and Arctic coasts, as well as the Great Lakes) is 8,891 kilometres (5,525 mi) long, including 2,475 kilometres (1,538 mi) shared with Alaska.

We both have notable celebrations this week of our country with many festivities and fireworks and picnics – often the launch to ‘real’ summertime.

A good neighbor – a found treasure.
— Chinese Proverb

This week, here in Canada we celebrated Canada Day, our countries 147th birthday. On July 1st in 1867, we became a new federation by signing the Constitution Act.

And the USA, our neighbours to the south, celebrate The Fourth of July, Independence Day.  This commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence by delegates from the 13 colonies in 1776.

We ‘the people’ of both countries revere our freedom and at Libre we are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to practice tea moments whenever and wherever we want – anytime, anywhere.  Join us this week and celebrate with a quiet moment of gratitude for the great place we live and the freedoms we enjoy.

We’d like to recognize and celebrate with a Good Neighbour Sale!

    We celebrated Canada Day with putting up our Flag pole and flag. We than watched a parade and had a BBQ with our neighbors and friends. About 40 people attended it. We also had a supper BBQ with my work family, where around 20 people enjoyed each others company.

    I went to the local park where thousands of people show up to celebrate Canada Day. I was one of the performers on the stage, our troupe belly danced for the crowd. There is many multicultural dances performed through-out the afternoon showing how diverse Canada is. A great time!

    I celebrated with a relaxing day off, contemplating how lucky we are to be free and really appreciating the beauty of my hometown and entire country. Capped it off with an awesome view of the fireworks at night.

    We love Canada day 🙂 In our family we each wrote a letter to the Canadian Navy personelle for my brother in law to take to work with him, we then had a picnic down by the water where we live and afterwards celebrated with a beautiful fireworks show.
    We always try to thank those who fought for our freedom and take the time to say what we are grateful for in our Country. We are so truly blessed and even though we always try to be full of gratitude, its a special day to really enjoy who we are, each other and where we live.
    Thank you!

    I had to work the evening shift, but home in time to go and enjoy the fireworks and sing our anthem with my daughter and grandson. Go home to eat some tidbits my daughter made and have a glass of wine! Great way to end the day!
