Here's What's Happening:
Nearly 1,000 Shriners are in Cornwall for the National Shriners Convention. Shriners from Eastern Canada and the Northeastern United States are making a lot of noise in the Seaway City. They will be at Lamoureux Park this Saturday. Check out their band competition and Shriner Car competition. The big draw will be the Shriner parade happening at 12:30 on Montreal Road and Water St. from St. Lawrence College to the Civic Complex.
