Thanks for the win!

Thanks to Bancroft's Canada Day 150 committee for selecting our Canada Day window as the winner of the town-wide business display contest!

High fives to all of the other businesses who joined in on the fun and helped paint the town red for Canada Day -- Bancroft sure looked great this past weekend!

It seems like the effort getting our beaver-gnawed tree from the bush all the way to town paid off. And what a year to win as we're celebrating our own anniversary this year...West Wind has been doing business in Bancroft for thirty years!

Yesterday we revealed a new window display, be sure to drop by to have a look-see...
