Among the guests, was Fort Papalia of Kincardine Pride.  “I am so proud to here and represent Kincardine Pride at this beautiful crosswalk unveiling.  I taught here for many years at St. Joseph’ School and am very proud of this community for taking this initiative. Hopefully, we in Kincardine will be able to get our Rainbow crosswalk done very soon.” Papalia is the founder of the Kincardine Pride Parade which, due to COVI-19, was cancelled this year.
