Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum-This photo was taken during the Carleton Place Centennial Parade on July 1, 1967. The Revelliers are marching by what is now the Granary building. We are looking forward to the 150th parade coming in July 2017!

Cathy Stanfield– This is the Rebecca Lodge float. My Mom and Aunt were members for years. The ladies either made or had made the outfits they have on. I know because I still have my Mom’s s\dress and bonnet 🙂 She’s on the far left with the black ribbon on her bonnet. Jean Bradford is driving the tractor. The Rebecca Lodge did a lot of volunteer work back in the day and were great supporters of the Marching Saints Drum Corps-Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum
