Delia residents were treated to a hearty breakfast on Sept. 7. As part of the village's Canada 150 celebrations, the Canada 150 committee teamed up with the Delia School to throw a party for everyone.

"The community/school breakfast had all the kids over from the local school into the community hall for a free breakfast and then had a bunch of Canada 150 celebrations and games out on the street," explained Delia CAO Mark Nikota.

"There's a Canada 150 committee that's been working all year on different ideas to celebrate the 150th birthday and then we're going to have some stuff with the fall fair later in October," he continued. "Every year, they do a school breakfast and [they] thought it would be a good time to combine some celebrations with the breakfast program."

The free breakfast wasn't most ambitious project the committee attempted at the event.

"The committee had painted a giant maple leaf on the street beforehand so they got all the people in red and white shirts to stand in the maple leaf and took a bunch of overhead shots."

The event was also attended by a number of community leaders.
