One of our most well known volunteers gone to soon

For many years Chris Bellchambers was a volunteer for Orillia Canada Day. He was there for setup, takedown and for any job in between. He passed away on Sunday June 20, 2021. He was greatly missed in our first post lockdown celebrations last year. We dedicated the 2022’s fireworks in his name.
