‘Save our fair’ rally postponed

Event rescheduled due to snowfall

A rally to save the Lighthouse Country Fall Fair has been postponed until Sunday, Feb. 25.

The rally was originally scheduled for Feb. 18, but due to a heavy snowfall, organizers decided to reschedule for Sunday, Feb. 25 from 2-4 p.m.

The rally will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 211 Bowser (7035 Island Highway W.).

The Bow Horne Bay Community Club is holding the rally to save the fall fair, which has been running for 47 years. The club needs the public’s help in filling “critical” positions required to plan for the annual fair.
