Fun Winter Events!

Bring the kids out for a public skate on Monday when they are home from school!

For the 3rd year, Assiginack is hosting a contest to find hidden things throughout the Township.  For the past two years it was candy canes.  This year it is wooden snowmen! Twenty 2 foot snowmen are hidden all over the township.  Hints are first released on our facebook page (Township of Assiginack) on a regular basis between December 1st and 31st with a weekly summary of hints found on our website and posters around town.  

In order to play you have to take the numbered hint and find the snowman.  You simply can’t write down the location as each snowman is numbered so that you must actually go to the location and record the number found on the snowman with the location.   Up for grabs is $400 in gift certificates from local businesses!

Once you have found all 20 snowmen, drop off your list to the municipal office or email it to   The draw will be done on January 3, 2017.

Sign up the kids for some makerspace activities!
