Too cold for snowmen
BY ANGELA BROWN
Staff Bad weather has been cited as the prime reason the Maxville and District Chamber of Commerce has ditched a snowman contest.
Chamber member Adrien Tessier said there were no entries. “I think the weather played a significant role in the level of participation or lack of participation. The snow wasn’t easy to work with, and it was very cold.”
He added: “I don’t think a lot of people wanted to trek outside. Next year, if we have a bit of a milder winter people will be able to jump in.”
The chamber of commerce is planning a community supper, formerly known as the multi-cultural dinner, June 20 starting at 6 p.m.
Mr. Tessier is spearheading the project this year. The event, tentatively called The Potluck Parade, will have a Barnyard Fun theme. “We’re trying to get people together within the community. It will be traditional local foods that people enjoy and know, and like to eat.”
The supper at the Maxville Sports Complex will include entertainment and door prizes. Scotiabank is expected to match funds up to $2,000 raised. The event will be free to attend with funds raised by donation and draw prizes.
