Keep the Beat took over Lakeside Park on Wednesday



L.V. Rogers students kept the Keep the Beat tradition alive on Wednesday when they staged a day-long music, dance and arts festival in Lakeside Rotary Park. Hundreds came out over the course of the day and into the evening to support the event that raises money for War Child Canada, an organization that assists children and their families in conflict areas around the planet.
