It’s time to come home. The Co­droy Val­ley will cel­e­brate its Come Home Year this sum­mer, with a week of fes­tiv­i­ties planned for July 31-Aug. 6.

Chair­man Frank Au­coin said the or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee has been mak­ing progress in putting to­gether a sched­ule of events, par­tic­u­larly the en­ter­tain­ment.

The com­mit­tee is seek­ing sub­mis­sions for a theme for the event. Au­coin said sub­mis­sions can be made by cur­rent and for­mer res­i­dents of the Val­ley un­til March 31.

Sev­eral sub­mis­sions have al­ready been re­ceived for a slo­gan.

Res­i­dents of the Val­ley will re­ceive a let­ter from the com­mit­tee soon lay­ing out a ten­ta­tive sched­ule. Au­coin said the com­mit­tee meets at St. Anne’s Cen­tre on the sec­ond Mon­day of each month, and any res­i­dent of the Val­ley is wel­come to at­tend.

The com­mit­tee will be look­ing for vol­un­teers both prior to and dur­ing Come Home Year.

Au­coin said any­one look­ing for in­for­ma­tion or in­ter­ested in help­ing out can con­tact him at 214-1285 or by email at fgau­coin@hot­mail.com.
