At noon on Canada Day, the staff at Sobeys set up for a gigantic
banana split for a donation of $2.00.
The proceeds go to the local food banks.
This is why we are celebrating.
Chunks of banana are the first to go into the plastic-lined trough.
That may not sound so good but it is all very clean and nice.
Next comes a layer of ice cream followed by strawberries, chocolate topping and
lots of whipped cream.
Several teams work very quickly at this assembly line so the ice cream doesn't melt.
As soon as the teams are done the call goes out to fill your cup
with banana split.
And that is a nice way to spend the noon hour on Canada Day.
I am so grateful to call Canada my home.
