|Quinan by Melissa Cobbett March
is a very small and quiet place. Not much goes on in this small community,
but it is an excellent
place to go to unite with nature. If you like to go canoeing the Quinan
river is a fun place. It takes a couple of hours canoe from quinan to Spring
Haven. There is one very exciting water fall that can be navigated if you
are an experienced canoeist. There are many lakes in Quinan most of them
are clean and nice to swim in.
Sometimes at night you can hear the coyotes, but you shouldn't worry because they never come out into view. A great place to go camping would be near the lakes, there would be nobody to disturb you while you sleep.
There are many lakes to go fishing in, most of the time you will find alot of people fishing in these areas. During the month of September, in Quinan, they hold a type of a fair. This is to raise money for the church and the Quinan Hall. There are rides, games, and a human water dunk, and then you can eat supper there. This event is usually held on a Sunday.
Just recently Quinan has been holding special events run by the RCMP, this helps keep young kids off the roads at night and gives them something to do. Some of these events have been events like going to the show, skating, sliding, camping, swimming. Most of these things are for the little kids, they might think that if they start when the kids are little that it will keep them out of trouble when they get bigger. Kids enjoy things like this and besides that it gets them out of the house for a while.
Quinan Catholic Church was constructed in about 1885 and is still in good
shape. This Catholic Church is French just like some Churches in Yarmouth.
