Rewarding Seasonal Events on Horizon!

Two seasonal events which characterize the bountiful nature of the Bass Islands community are near on the calendar.  The first is the annual Harvest Dinner held at Tipper’s Restaurant on Friday, 2 November 2018.  This unique gathering supports the Gustav Heineman Memorial Scholarship Fund.  The second is the Christmas Bazaar held on Thursday, 15 November 2018.  This event features the craftwork of island residents.  Both offer a wonderful way to share the blessings of our island life.
