THIRD ANNUAL FIELD DAY

February 26, 2005
 
Preparation for the Field Day began in January.  Tom and Janice Reed served as co-chairpersons for the Planning Committee.  Also serving on the committee were Rob and Louanne Cameron, Jerry Chambers, Gary Clement, Chris Dickson, Sally and Ken MacFawn, Brian and Diane Mitchell, Sue and John Olsen, Gordon and Linda Phillips, and Bob and Louise Stickney.
 

Louanne Cameron, Sue Olsen, and Janice Reed prepare

"goodie bags" to pass out to the children at the field day.

 

Dianne Mitchell again spearheaded the creation of the snow sculpture.

She spent several days and many long hours creating this

snowmobiling polar bear.  Also helping out on the sculpting

were Linda and Gordon Phillips and Louise Stickney

 
The day before the Field Day, volunteers appeared like magic to get everything in place for the next day!
 
 
 

This trailer, donated to the club by Elise Boivin, was hauled down

to the lower field to serve as the focal point for the Poker Run,

and for membership recruitment.

to guide people to the Field Day.

The morning of the Field Day dawned with blue skies and crisp temperatures!
 
Gary Clement was the first to arrive to begin preparations for the day.
 
Janice Reed and Sally MacFawn had the menu ready ...

Rob and Louanne Cameron were ready to

sell coffee and donuts to the early birds

 
... and Sue Olsen was ready to sell 50/50 tickets.

Roland and Mary Ann Bellegarde were

among the first to sign up for the Poker Run.

Children posed atop the snow sculpture before a day of sliding.

Ivan Arsenault, the official bon fire attendant, looked on as

Sue Olsen hit up Gordon Phillips for a 50/50 ticket.

Tom Reed and Ken MacFawn were seriously ready to start feeding the masses ...
... while Sally ladled a serving of Fern & Betty Dumoulin's homemade beef stew ...
... and Marcelle Miller and Sandy Carignan waited on the hungry crowd.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
It was a great day for children, young ones and older ones, and the slide was busy all day long.  Many thanks to Brian and Diane Mitchell for spending almost the entire day overseeing the sliding activity!
