Bruce Power is hosting its 2020 Block Party in Walkerton!
Originally it was the Town of Saugeen Shores who was scheduled to host the venue.
However, this all changed after a Bruce Power delegate made a visit to Brockton to update Council on Bruce Power's current and future projects including next summer's Block Party.
It was Councillor Kym Hutcheon who made the suggestion that Bruce Power bring the party to Walkerton in 2020 as this will coincide with the 20th anniversary of the Walkerton Ecoli Tragedy.
Brockton Mayor Chris Peabody reached out to Saugeen Shores Mayor Luke Charbonneau to request permission to host the party next summer, who graciously agreed.
Peabody adds Bruce Power Executive Vice President James Scongack became involved and the entire thing just took off.
Hutcheon notes the Brockton will be marking the 20th anniversary of the Ecoli Tragedy in a very respectful way next May.
She says the 2020 Bruce Power Block Party will serve a recovery party in July to celebrate how far the community has come.
Both Peabody and Hutcheon commend the Town of Saugeen Shores for allowing Walkerton to host the July 18th 2020 Bruce Power Block Party and thank Bruce Power for their generosity.
Hutcheon is very excited about the July 18th Block Party saying there will be fireworks, free food and lots of great activities.
