WINTER FUN IN CAMPBELL’S BAY – Despite the heavy snow, the municipality of Campbell's Bay hosted its annual Winter Family Fun Day, February 12, at the municipal rink. After a day of hockey, sliding, wagon rides, and other activities, a ceremony was held later in the evening for the illumination of the community's mural.


BRISTOL CARNIVAL – The first event for rink activities at the Bristol Carnival, February 12, was snow shoveling!

Pictured here from left to right, Sydney and Yanni Newberry (Yanni had the fastest lap in the toboggan race), Ben Judd and Isaac Graham, who won the relay race. McKenna Dubeau and Emma Gagnon
volunteered to serve hot chocolate at the rink. Card players enjoyed an afternoon at the Jack Graham Hall and were later joined by others for a community supper, all organized by the Bristol Community Association.


ANNUAL OTTER LAKE FISHING DERBY – About 160 people registered for the Otter Lake Fire Department's sixth annual fishing derby, February 4 and 5. According to Fireman Lee Vadneau, the event included over 120 prizes this year. In addition to the fishing derby, funds were also collected from the bar and canteen, a meal, a five-team ball hockey tournament on the RA rink, and a dart tournament hosted by the Golden Age Club.
