Summerfest
26 July 2008

Pictures open in a new window with a
“Close Window”
button at the bottom.
Summerfest started off on Friday night with a “special” Kruze night at the Stokes Bay General Store with the usual antique and classic cars and motorcycles along with the Soapbox entries for the ‘Show and Shine. ’ The defending People’s Favourite Soapbox winners from 2007 Josie Meilhausen and Cassandra Bridge took home top honours again this year with a new entry of a Model ‘T’ Roadster. Many thanks to the Hayes family for bringing over their #51 Nascar Busch Car and their Nascar Craftsman Truck. Everyone enjoyed looking them over.

When the sun set on Friday night, Bob and Chris from the General Store hosted a jam session around a campfire. Dixon and Company along with a few brave souls entertained everyone with a wide variety of songs. There is nothing better than good music, good friends, and good weather.

Saturday morning started with a weather forecast predicting 60% chance of rain, and threatening clouds. Not to be deterred, the Yard Sale items were set up and the Aubin family were ready to sell the treasures donated to the sale. Next to the yard sale, things were getting under way with a “Breakfast” menu offered by Bob Zavitz and his famous possee. At around 9:45 a.m. the 60% chance materialized into about 15 drops of rain, unlike the rest of the Peninsula that apparently got the balance of the rain. It just goes to show that we live “right” in Stokes Bay.
Inside the Community Centre, Debbie and Doug Tackaberry were busy selling tickets for the Penny Table, Our ticket sellers, Bob and Joyce Layne were selling tickets for the Specialty Draw, and Sarah, Sasha and Lisa Collins were busy selling tickets on the cribbage board donated by Larry Rae who worked and retired from Durham Furniture.
