Recap Summer 2016

As summer begins to wind down, Council and Staff hope you had a wonderful summer and were able to enjoy the activities and places in Assiginack.
There is one more walking tour of our community.

Our last big event of the summer is our 3rd Manitoulin Deer Show. This year proves to be bigger than ever! With vendors from Sudbury – Tracks and Wheels, Sault Ste. Marie – Perry’s Gun Shop and our local ones attending; Fuel the Fire tv show, Rylans, Quality Deer Management Association and more!
The committee is excited to introduce a Kids Wilderness Challenge where kids of any age will be paired up into teams and go through a series of stations testing their outdoor knowledge.  Be sure to bring your youth, it starts at 10 am!

A Wild Game Cook Off with the chance to win a barbecue is also scheduled, with your entry to be in by noon for judging.
Lectures from the MNR, a wildlife biologist from southern Ontario, locals Mike Phillips and Ian Anderson and much more!
Don’t forget to bring your mount in and have a chance to not only win a firearm but also be the first inductees into the Manitoulin Deer Hall of Fame. For all information go here.

Some highlights of the summer include:
Swimming at the beach, playing on the playground and three sessions of swim lessons.

Zumba at the waterfront for kids and adults.
