Each year on Thanksgiving a group of folks gather at Sturgeon Point to toss the ol’ pigskin around and have a grand ol’ time. Over the past several years this event has taken place at the Wisener cottage.
Whether you are interested in playing or just watching and socializing with friends and neighbours everyone is welcome!
Please bring your own lawn chair/blanket and beverage of choice.
The format of the game is touch football for all ages. Teams are distinguished as “Hats” and “No-Hats” so if you plan to play, please bring a hat with you.

There have been various reports of bears around the Point.
There is apparently a mother bear and two cubs. One of the cubs may be on it’s own now
As bears travel in search of natural food, they can be drawn to human-caused, unnatural food sources. These sources include:
- Bird food (seed, suet and nectar)
- Food put outside for pets or wildlife
- Compost, grease and food residue on barbecue grills
- Food smell (baking or cooking with open windows or doors)
- Agriculture crops such as corn and soya
For non-emergency encounters call the Bear Wise reporting line: 1-866-514-2327 (April 1st to November 30)
Call the Bear Wise reporting line if a bear is:
- Returning often to your property
- Roaming around, checking garbage cans
- Breaking into a vehicle, shed, garage or unoccupied building
- In a tree in an urban area
- Pulling down a bird feeder or knocking over a barbecue
- Injured or dead
For emergency encounters: Call 911 or local police if a bear poses an immediate threat to personal safety.
