The Great Salmon Send-Off  (aka “The GSSO”)

Come join the Stoney Creek Environment Committee, the Sapperton Fish and Game Club, the Stoney Creek Community School, and other supporters presenting displays and activities, at the annual celebration including live entertainment, and of course the main event: the opportunity to release young salmon into Stoney Creek!

2018 is our 28th annual Great Salmon Send-Off!

We look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday May 12, 2018 from 10am to 2pm, at Stoney Creek Community School for some special fun!

As in previous years we invite organizations and community groups who support the environment to join us with displays to promote and demonstrate their initiatives. We also encourage the participation of provincial and local government representatives and organizations to support this great day.

This event has a strong reputation in the community and always brings a great turnout of people, families, and organizations – as proven at last year’s event, with umbrellas out in force!

Organizations can participate and bring a display for this year’s event.  We encourage exhibits such as demonstrations, games or activities that will create interactions for families and kids at the event.  Tent space and tables and chairs for display participants can be provided as needed.

Please contact Pat Hargreaves (contact below) if you wish to participate.  You will receive further information and a brief questionnaire to find out what you will require from us for your display.

We look forward to hearing from you and hope that you will be able to join us at Stoney Creek in May this year.
