Once again this year, Canadian Red Cross volunteers played hero for some kids and their parents at the Royal St. John’s Regatta. The event draws a big crowd. After all, the regatta has a long tradition (194 years running!) and residents of St. John’s enjoy a civic holiday that day to take in the races at Quidi Vidi Lake. But big crowds can also mean getting separated from your family and that’s where Red Cross volunteers come in. This photo shows two Red Cross volunteers walking through the crowd during the regatta last week to help reunite lost children with their parents, provide information to the public and assist with lost articles.
