TEHKUMMAH—The community of Tehkummah came together on Sunday, March 1 to enjoy the annual Winter Fun Day. A pancake breakfast prepared by the Senior United Church Women helped everyone fuel up for outdoor activities that included law sawing, nail driving, a 2×4-a-go-go, and a “survivor” race. An impromptu ball hockey game turned into a fun for all ages broom ball competition.

Inside the municipal complex the library hosted a book sale, a bake sale, and remained open for the day. Movies were provided for children and young people who needed a break from the cold. Volunteers for the Little Schoolhouse and Museum barbecue took refuge inside the doors when not serving up hot dogs and sausages to hungry participants. Tehkummah Community Hall was packed for the progressive euchre tournament. Euchre was followed by a Bowl and Roll chili dinner.

The day was coordinated by Lorie Leeson and Laird Lee of Tehkummah council’s Leisure Services Committee with participation by many community groups.
