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.”

Up­com­ing din­ner

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.
