Celebrating Canada’s 150th Anniversary

The Fort Simpson Chamber of Commerce is helping Fort Simpson businesses and residents get in the spirit to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017.

The Chamber itulips selling Canada 150th tulip bulbs. The bulbs were cultivated especially for the anniversary year. The red markings on each petal resemble a maple leaf on a white background. The Chamber is doing pre-sales of the bulbs, which will be available for planting in September.

“Next spring the village will be filled with red and white tulips that will pay tribute to a special anniversary for Canada,” said Kirby Groat, the Chamber’s president.

The bulbs are being sold for $25 for 15 bulbs, $42 for 25 and $83 for 50. For more information on how to place a pre-order contact the Chamber at 695-6538 or fscofc@gmail.com.
