Breakfast, awarding the Bob Palmer Volunteer of the Year award to very deserving Tanya Grainger, and then getting down to the fun of the day, with so many activities for all ages.
Science North fascinated the kids. (and the big kids, too!)
but then, who doesn't enjoy watching stuff 'blow up' in the kitchen? A little of this, a dash of that, and voila, a volcano!!!
Lots of treats for sale by the local Public School, and of course, we all had to bring some home.
Tug and Jake were patient, kind and enduring, ignoring passing snowplows and taking plenty of trips down to the beach and back.
There was snow art, and lots of pop-up games -- baseball, hockey, football and more!
or try pedaling a Fat Bike - these are amazing on snow packed trails, but they do give you a workout!
A silent auction.
Archery -- and yes, they patiently taught us all how to properly hold the bow and aim. Even if they didn't turn us all into Caitness from the Hunger Games, it is great to try out.
There were nine entries in the Great Chili Cook-off... we tried them all....
The day wrapped up with a performance by Yuk Yuks Comedy Cabaret.
Winter Carnival season is in full swing -- Dorset Snowball is happening Next Weekend. It's worth coming to the north country to enjoy these festivals.
