Reviving a community tradition

To the editor:

The Canoe Civic Club is pleased to announce it will host Canoe Community Homecoming on November 18, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

This will be a family friendly, community event that will hopefully become an annual tradition.

In the past the Canoe Civic Club has hosted community homecomings that consisted of lots of food and fellowship. Unfortunately, many of the participants of the old homecoming events have passed on, are no longer able to participate or have moved away. In an effort to keep our beloved community active, this year the Canoe Community Homecoming will be a little different!

Activities will include but not be limited to hayrides, peanut boil, arts and crafts vendors, historical displays, live music, games for the kids, food and more!

If you or someone you know would be interested in participating in any way, please let me know! I can be reached at 251-236-0481 or on Facebook at Canoe Civic Club.

There is no charge for vendors to set up, however each vendor must complete and return the vendor application no later than November 1.

The Civic Club is also seeking photographs, letters, documents and other items relevant to the Canoe, Robinsonville, Wawbeek area. If you have any of these items that can be copied and displayed inside the Civic Center, please contact me.
