On July 17th, 2019 Shriners Fun Game Night was held at our Recreation Centre.  There were many people in attendance, it was a great night of fun and laughter.

No one knew before the night arrived what to expect only those that planned the fun games night.

the games consisted of dance with me one more time, marshmallow game, feed the baby, cheesie head, Mr. and Mrs. fashion even a fake marriage.

Thanks to all who came out to support our first fun games night here in the park.

CANADA DAY WEEKEND CELEBRATIONS

Our park held Canada Day celebrations on June 28th, 29th, 30th and July 1st.   We had games of shuffleboard, ring toss and darts.   There was a great crowd that participated in all of those games and had a wonderful time.

On June 29th there was a potluck supper held at the Rec Centre where there was seventy-two people in attendance..  We also had some American friends visiting our park, they were very excited they were able to attend our potluck supper. They tried many of our Newfoundland dishes and loved them all  and was amazed to see so much food. It was a great evening for all.

On Sunday Morning June 30th, the parks regular scheduled gospel music morning was held.

On Monday July 1st, we had our Canada Day celebrations.   People came out dressed for Canada Day and we all paraded around the park.  The weather was quite cool but that didn’t dampen the spirits of those in attendance to show their pride for our country.

We then returned to the Rec  Centre for some Cake and Refreshments.   It was another great weekend at our park.  Thanks to everyone who helped in any way to make Canada Day weekend such a success.

Park hosting party for Nobel Everett Green and Lady Cindy

On June 8th we had a farewell party for Everett & Cindy Green.   They have been long time seasonal campers at the park.  Everett was also a park board member.

they decided after almost fifty years of camping, over thirty of those years were at Shriners Park it was time to sell their RV.

it didn’t take long for the trailer to sell and their plans to leave came sooner than they had anticipated.

Of course we could never let them leave without a proper send off.  We planned a function at our Rec Centre were the seasonal patrons of the park came out to wish them both well.

We served hot dogs and refreshments and Ev’s Birthday was the next day so we presented it with a birthday cake as well. It was a great day to show how much we appreciated them both.

It was sad to see them go and they will both be surely missed, but will always be included in any functions we have at the park.

A Visit With Shriners From British Columbia

On September 10th, 2018, A bus tour of Nobles and their ladies from British Columbia visited the park. Upon their arrival they were greeted by our Park Shriners as well as management.  After their arrival they were served a hot beverage with a sweet treat.  They were very impressed with the park as to the size and was amazed at our Recreation Centre.  Park Treasurer George Joseph Spoke to the group and gave them a brief history of the park and role it has played  in raising money for the Patient Transportation Fund.

When time for them to depart they were so happy that they decided to make the stop at our park.  We thank them for visiting and as they were leaving on the bus they were waving good-bye.

They  toured around the Eastport peninsula and as the pass by our park on their way back out of town the bus honked its horn many times.  This gesture was assurance that they really enjoyed their stop at our park.

Thanks to McCarthy’s tour bus for taking such great care of our Nobles and their ladies.
