The Flin Flon Trout Festival Committee made their second try at holding their annual meeting last night. In spite of the need for a President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer nobody came out to fill those positions. The decision was made to approach the city and see if they can help come up with a solution to finding people to organize the Festival. Even though the current executive members are unable to remain in those positions they are willing to provide assistance to those who take over the Festival. Sheena Reed has agreed to continue with the parade and Anita Pruden will continue with Main Street Days.
The Committee ended this year Festival with a surplus of 22 thousand dollars with the Fish Fry being the best money raiser with just over five thousand dollars with 408 people attending with positive feedback on the actual fish fry and the new casino idea. The Fishing derby had a deficit of just over two thousand dollars but that included the purchase of measuring devices that can be used well into the future and the extremely cold weather reduced participation. The bad weather also affected attendance at the canoe races. The parade was a success with 15 classic cars, 20 floats and 9 fire vehicles.
