On Saturday, the community was welcomed to the Essex Home Hardware for a celebration of the Seguin family’s fifth year of ownership.

  While enjoying a celebratory piece of cake, Home Hardware visitors were also invited to watch the award-winning Essex Energizers jump rope team perform a number of individual and team routines that were choreographed to energetic tunes.

The demonstration of skill gave the Energizers a chance to perform in front of a crowd before heading to the national competition, which will be held at St. Clair College between May 18 and 21. The team just returned from provincials with loads of medals in various divisions of competition.

Representatives of Home Hardware also invited the Fight Like Mason Foundation to be onsite during the event. Volunteers sold Fight Like Mason-themed items to support its charity, which raises funds to improve treatment, care, quality of life, and awareness of patients diagnosed with childhood cancers. It also provides IV poles, which are decorated with varied themes to take the hospital-feel away for youth battling the disease.

Iain Macri and Chantelle Bacon, parents of Mason Bacon-Macri, who was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma at the age of two, formed the foundation in honour of their son.
