First Saturday in June

16 pages14 minutes


"First Saturday in June" is a nostalgic work of creative nonfiction that reminisces about the fine tradition of the annual "May Day" celebration which is still held in Pitt Meadows, British Columbia, Canada on the first Saturday in June. Told with dreamy childhood wonder and pluck, this story is filled with the now old-fashioned details that Pitt Meadows locals may still remember and that anyone who has lived in a small town can identify with. Offered as a tribute to previous generations who took community spirit, connection, and volunteerism to the most selfless and altruistic levels, this story recalls a simpler and seemingly richer past while still looking ahead with wide-eyed wonder and curiousity about all that is yet to come.
