TV tunes

Avery DeGagne, along with the rest of the “Gleek Week” cast, performed the theme song from “What’s New Scooby Doo” during the group’s final performance at the Townshend Theatre here Friday. The week-long summer musical theatre program, offered by Renée Martin-Brown and Awesome Productions, featured more than 20 TV tunes from throughout the ages.

‘O Canada!’

With the theme that “hockey players can sing too,” the Robert Moore School Boys Choir enthusiastically displayed their patriotism in the Canada Day parade on Friday. The parade, which started at the Sorting Gap Marina and ended at the Legion, was a big hit—just like the rest of the July 1st activities.

Teddy Bear picnic

The event featured a bouncy castle, barrel train rides, music, crafts, games, and a visit from Dr. Elaine Spencer, who fixed up any “injured” teddy bears.
