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
