Events committee resigns
Former members cite lack of support from citizens, Harbour Grace council
The four-member civic events committee in Harbour Grace has resigned en masse, citing a lack of support from citizens and town leaders.
The members — acting chair Linda Whelan, and Isabelle Sheppard, D ebra Korab and Bernice McGrath — quit the committee this past spring, and outlined their concerns in astrongly worded letter to Mayor Don Coombs and other members of council.
“After more than a decade of personal, physical, mental and, at times, financial cost, it is time to call it quits,” the letter stated. “ We feel that neither the citizens or council of Harbour Grace support or respect our efforts.”
Don Coombs is mayor of the Town of Harbour Grace.
