In their own words...

 “I have been going to the Hands Across the Border Celebration off and on since the early 1970s. First as a brownie, then a girl guide in Canada.  

I moved to the states and had 2 boys. My family continued to participate in the celebration. I feel this is a wonderful opportunity for both countries to get together!
 I still enjoy it and so do my boys now ages 17 and 23 (Eagle Scout). We have been going since they were little.
I hope the tradition continues so that I may attend with my future grandchildren. Thanks for all the memories.”
