The event was organized by MNO CWMC Senator Maryjane Buttenham and proved to be a great success.
The Council supplied a wonderful feast with approximately 65 citizens in attendance. The local Tim Hortons sponsored all the coffee for the event.
There was a variety of entertainers including the astonishing Métis music of the Anderson Family along with the excitement of the MNO Voyageur Games. Citizens and other attendees had the opportunity to learn jigging and try axe throwing as well as target practice with rifles and sling shots.
A large trappers tent on site featured an array of cultural displays, as well as MNO program materials.
The event was well received and the Council is planning on making it an annual event.
