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.
