One member of a Syrian family in Thunder Bay is looking forward to attending her first Canada Day celebrations at Marina Park. 

Sama Toubaji and her family came to the city from Lebanon and started the Damascus Donair restaurant on St. Paul Street. 

Toubaji says she's excited. 

While this isn't her first Canada Day, it will be the first time she's participated in the waterfront celebrations and looks forward to seeing the fireworks. 

Toubaji says Thunder Bay has been great in helping her family get settled and is very thankful. (Staff photo)
