Canada Day on Aruba

Canada DayCanada Day was celebrated in Aruba on July1st, 2008, at the home of Joy & Bill Carson. A number of days ago Joy & Bill ran a modest newspaper ad inviting Canadians living on Aruba to join them for a national day celebration at their home in Malmok.

The response was as usual enthusiastic, and while the Carsons are divided whether it’s the 10th annual or 11th annual, they are united in extending warm hospitality over great food, catered by Divi resorts.

As Bill & Joy are leaving Aruba following Bill’s upcoming retirement from Caribbean Mercantile Bank, the honor of hosting the annual event is up for grab. Who will be next year’s host for the traditional get together, is still an open question.
