What a great day we had last Saturday at the Great Cloth Diaper Change in Orillia. We had 42 parents gather together from all parts of Simcoe County, Muskoka, and even some coming up from the Greater Toronto Area, all to celebrate cloth diapers. We had participants from Washago, Victoria Harbour, Orillia, Barrie, Muskoka (Gravenhurst), Midland, Angus, Oshawa, Wasaga Beach, as well as Peterborough and Toronto. We couldn’t have had a more diverse crowd, and it was so much fun seeing all the cloth diapered babies in the room!
Kelly Clune, from Orillia’s Waste Management Committee, was there as our official witness. She was incredibly supportive and impressed with the parents that attended. She’s been advocating cloth diapers for many years and was genuinely thrilled to be a part of our event.
The hit of the morning was definitely Kate of First Songs of Muskoka entertaining everyone with her music performance.
Thank you to everyone who participated. We’ve been very excited to see photographs posted from around the world in the past couple of days, so we want to be sure to share favorites from our event. See more photographs on our Facebook page.
If you missed the event, you can read about it on the Packet & Times or see us on CTV News Barrie (start at about 9′ 20″).
Once we get word from Guinness World Records (R) about the results of the record attempt, we will be sure to post about it.
