At 1:00 pm we will have a community BBQ and Highliner competition, we are looking forward to taking this time to reengage with our community and give thanks for all of the support we have gotten throughout the last few years. This lunch will be free of charge and is open to everyone in our community. Location to be announced. We will end the day at our treasured Memorial, with a service remembering our fishermen lost at sea while offering support and encouragement to all our fishing families. This will take place at the Fishermen's Memorial Sanctuary at 4:00 pm.
