We just might have made it to Summer. I did think that Spring was supposed to come after Winter but we must have blinked and missed it. The temperatures are in the plus 20 mark and the flowers are starting to appear on the trees.
On a good note we have seen several RV and Trailers going about town so the travellers are back, the ducks and geese are back as well so with them each year come the returning townsfolk. Indeed this is a good time of the year, cottgaes to be openned, houses to be aired out and gas to be put in the lawnmower.
Good Luck for May
and May the Sales be With You!!!
Downtown Street Sale May 25th
It Starts when you want to
Ends when you decide
Another year has arrived and it is time once again to have our Annual Street Sale. To the Merchants that wish to participate, this is your day to pull out a table or two and put on it things that are suitable as Yard Sale or Street Sale items.
If it is “junk” then you know where it should really go, if it is front line products then it should be on your store shelf…. but that which is in between…. that is the “stuff” Street Sales are made for.
Canada Day Celebrations

18th Annual Waterfront is Coming up Soon
Saturday Aug 4th – All Day
The committee got together the other day and prepared the lineup. There will be a few changes based upon the response we received last year.
We had thought Cardboardboat races would be starting to make a comeback… but it’s not time yet.
We had thought that the “Raft Race” might be a possible substitute…. but it’s not time yet.
This year the committee proposes the greater use of something we already have at hand and with a little dash, colour and creativity will be a lot of fun.
Instant Cardboard Boat races are still with us, Tube, Canoe and the ever panful Bellyflop are still with us. Rebels Beach Volleyball, B&C Variety Ice-Cream Eating Contest, Rock-Paper-Scissors Tournament….. but new this year will be
- Craft & Crew decorated boat races.
- Class “A” – Craft & Crew decorated Canoe>
- Class “B” – Craft & Crew decorated other (non-canoe)
- All Crafts and Crew to be on display and judged worthy at the park prior to race time.
- Details to follow
