Harbour Day  August 19 2017

The Village of Masset is proposing a scaled back version of Harbour Day for 2017.  Holding the Agate Man Triathlon in conjunction with Harbour Day last year was well received, however, volunteers for other events were difficult to confirm.  Therefore, we are proposing the following events subject to confirming participation by the usual groups.

 Agate Man Triathlon

Pancake Breakfast

Fire Dept. Burger Café

Farmers Market

Dinner event

Anyone interested in assisting with these events or providing their own event please contact the Village office before April 28, 2017.
