We look forward to continuing all our community activities over the coming year. Thank you to Canadian Heritage for a grant of $9300.00 for our Holdin’ Ground Festival - 2017. The funding will help to develop and to produce many community events.
Thank you to all who participated in our summer events. The weekly walking tours - Heart of Heriage, Cellars and Songs, and Toutons and Tunes went very well. "How's About a Time?", The Haunting on Coley's Point, An Evening with the Gosse Family at the Bay Roberts Royal Canadian Legion, and The Bay Bazaar at the Bay Arena were all very well attended and received many positive comments.
Congratulations to Ross Petten of Port de Grave who won the $5000.00 Travel Voucher + Luggage Set - $5000 .
