Coming Events this Spring

We have so many great events to tell you about.   Some for kids, some for adults and some for families. But all of them guaranteed to be lots of fun!

First up is April 9th, not only is it the day of the Blood Donor Clinic in Little Current, but it is the Day of Pink, the International day against bullying, discrimination, homophobia, and transphobia in schools and communities.  Be sure to wear pink on Wednesday.

May 26, June 2nd, 9th and 16th from 6:30 - 8 pm - Ball Hockey Nights for kids.  A drop in evening of a fun sport playing ball hockey.   Kids of all ages are encouraged to come out and bring helmet with cage, gloves, sticks and shin pads.   Cost per session is $1.

May 27th brings a flashback to the 60's with a 'Happy Days Cafe' for adults who want to visit the past and remember what life was like back in the 60's.  With memoribilia on display from that time, and craft exhibitors with their work, bring your favourite item from back then, come out, grab a coffee and have some fun.   Cost $2.

June 4th for Assiginack kids brings 'Bike Safety and Fun' brought by OPP Officer Rob Mellan at the arena parking lot from 6:30-8pm.   Kids can bring their bikes and helmets and Officer Mellan will check them out, do some fun activities and teach them about bike safety.  Be sure to bring your child out so they can bike safely this summer.
When you plant your garden this spring, throw in a few pumpkin seeds because we are having our first ever Pumpkin Festival.   It will have pumpkin races, seed spitting contests, and even a pumpkin catapult!  This fun event will happen on October 26th at the fairgrounds.

In June for 2 weeks commencing on June 16th and finishing up on Canada Day, we are having Assiginack participate in a Pay It Forward campaign.  For 14 days we are going to turn our township into a community of people doing good deeds/nice things for others.   It will end with a huge celebration on Canada Day at the beach for everyone.   There might even be an auction of some celebrity folk!   (sshhh....we haven't told our Reeve that we are planning to auction him off to the highest bidder=)

Our Barn Quilt Tour is ongoing and we are selling our barn quilt boards at a steady pace.  Don't wait to long to pick up a board and paint a great quilt design on it!  Details are here.
