Successful family funfest-grand opening-concert

Through the rain and claps of thunder the family funfest pressed on. Although the weather deterred our cardboard duct tape boat racers, we did have one brave, well built boat race on the harbour. With the bbq under the tent and an egg spoon race well in progress the music began inside with Doris Mason and friends. It was a terrific turnout considering the weather. Friends and families from near and far continue to attend each year. We look forward to our 6th! 

The grand opening began after 7pm with the singing of O'Canada by all. A beautiful tribute to Pete Ratcliffe was given by Doris Mackenzie, A power point presentation provided a before and after outlook of the hard work and dedication of the community and a time capsule was filled and to be re-opened in 10 years. The honorable Peter Mackay,MLA Tim Houston and Councillor Sally Fraser each said a few words of best wishes and congratulations. 
The finale was a terrific concert - A full house, filled with friends to wrap up one heck of an awesome day!
