Family Fun-Fest Photos

Music, boats, food and children what more do you need? The community gathered at the old school house in Merigomish to enjoy a cardboard duct tape boat race. 4 participants threw themselves in their homemade boats and paddled or tried to paddle through the course. 3 out of the 4 did not make it far however the powerful paddlers made it to the finish line.

Musicians were plentiful: Doris Mason, Kim Dunn, Fleur Mainville, Allison Stewart, Chantal Sauliner, Bob Dean, Molly Thompson and Dave Dunn.

BBQ and a childrens fish pond were all a part of the activities.

Thank you to the District One Youth Council.

We look forward to next years Family Fun Fest.

Thank you from the MARSA TEAM
