Cheers to the last long weekend!
…oh my…another summer is creeping to a close…
This last long weekend of summer, the September Long weekend, or as some refer to it as Labour Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer. We look back on the summer that was and all those wonderful occasions that brought friends and family together…the rendezvous on patios, backyard bar-b-q’s, tennis with an old friend, long lake trips with guests, community volunteerism, the farmers’ markets, festival and events in every corner of the country, cottaging, water skiing, tubing, socials, weddings, engagements, birthday celebrations, road trips, camping, canoeing, visting a place you’d never been to, travel and perhaps just a quiet moment with friends enjoying the end of day sunset (feel free to comment on your favourite summer occasion below).
Summer 2011 was just as wonderful as summers past and summers to come. I suppose in Canada it becomes a bit of a ritual for us, given the shorter seasonal aspect of summer. We really learn how to pack it in through what one could say is really just eight weeks of peak weather that we can hopefully count on.
So as you pack up the car that one last time, or sweep the back patio, or tune up the bbq or load that fridge with beer for the last major soiree of summer…take good care…choose responsibly and cheers to the September Long Weekend ! @MolsonFerg

My gosh…I walk in an have a chat with a room full of our summer representatives and find out that I’m getting old ! It was 30 years ago this week that I sat in a room similar to them in a hotel in downtown Toronto for my summer representative orientation. And…the fundamental purpose and journey for these young ladies and gentlemen has not changed very much at all. They will criss cross the Province of Ontario at various festivals, community events, ball events, soccer events, bbq’s, backyard get togethers, reunions, slo pitch, social gatherings and family events. In each and every situation they will be promoting responsible choices…and helping Ontarians connect with each other in occasions that this great summer ahead will bring. A toast to our summer team of 2011. I’ve got fond memories from my days in Northern Ontario and I know that you’ll help make our beer drinkers in Ontario have a great summer by your presence and effort. Cheers @MolsonFerg

Waking up this morning I was overjoyed to hear the sound of water running in the streets. I guess I was still in a dream state of my youth in Kenora Ontario where water would actually be running in the streets at the end of March. Alas, looking out the window there were actually flurries in Toronto and the water sound was traffic plying through the slushy environs. I know I know, March in like a lamb and out like a lion (and I’m not suggesting a few flakes are lion…friends from outside Toronto will pounce on that !) Spring in the beer biz is a special time of year. Throughout communities it is a time of renewal…a time to prepare for all the natural ramp up to festivals, events, hockey playoffs, spring breaks, family reunions, awards shows and the gradual opening of patios speckled across this great land. It’s also a time to keep responsible choices in mind. So, a toast to communities coast to coast to coast…spring, we’re ready whenever you are. Cheers. @MolsonFerg http://amplify.com/u/bxbs1

A few weeks back, we wrote about our partnership with the Vancouver Aquarium and WWF-Canada for their upcoming Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup (GCSC). As promised, I have some more details around Molson Canadian’s participation in events across Canada.
Background on the cleanup: From September 18–26, Canadians will be volunteering at shoreline cleanup sites in urban and rural communities, removing harmful litter from fresh and salt water shorelines coast to coast to coast.
How do you get involved?
You, your friends and family are invited to help clean up our local shorelines and then join Molson Canadian at a wrap up celebration!
Where we’ll be:
VANCOUVER Saturday, Sept 18, 2010
TORONTO Saturday, Sept 18, 2010
OTTAWA Saturday, Sept 18, 2010
HALIFAX Saturday, Sept 18, 2010
St.ALBERT (AB) Sunday, Sept 19, 2010
- Cleanup – 10:00 a.m. Sturgeon River at St. Albert Place (Register)
- Post cleanup celebrations – Vintage
There are hundreds of other locations across the country – to find one in your hometown: http://shorelinecleanup.ca/en/search/cleanups
We’re excited to play our part in an initiative that will help keep Canada’s water resources beautiful so we can continue to brew our beer with the best this land has to offer! I’ll be at the Toronto event this weekend along with fellow Molson Coors employees @MolsonMoffat and @MolsonCaroleB. If you’re in the area, drop by for the cleanup and a cold one
See you on the shorelines. Cheers, MolsonTonia
