September 28th ~ Clark's Harbor, Cape Sable Island, Nova Scotia

Local Organizer: Pat Hudson

One of our first event volunteers in Nova Scotia, Pat Hudson, a member of the Southwest Paddling Association, has helped to organize a first-class landing for our Expedition and our twelfth and final "Gulf of Maine Day". Pat has contacted the Clark's Harbour Mayor, Lee Stoddard, who is most enthusiastic about our trip and its conclusion in his town.

This is our final community visit. The town of Clark’s Harbour is planning a reception to celebrate our arrival and the end of our Expedition with a big party. Greet us behind the Tourism Bureau (note: this is NOT the Town Wharf as listed in previous Newsletters) at 1:00 to celebrate the end of our five-month journey. Interested paddlers may join the flotilla to escort the Expedition team in. A buffet supper will be served at Seaside Centre at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person and are being sold in advance . . . purchase tickets early as there are a limited number available. A slide-show of the five-month Gulf of Maine Expedition will follow dinner at 8:00. The slide-show is open to the public and is free of charge. Other activities will also be scheduled for the afternoon. For more information or to purchase tickets for the buffet, contact Pat Hudson at 902/637-2940.
