Come Home Year

Come Home Year is a civic event for many towns that encourages a return to home town. Due to significant economic migration away from many of the small rural towns these events draw many generations to celebrate.

In 2000, there was a provincial "Come Home Year" in Newfoundland and Labrador where many people came back to visit their various communities.

In 2005, Saskatchewan had a "Come Home Year" as part of the province's centennial celebration.

Famous quotes containing the words year and/or home:

    For six years you shall sow your land and gather in its yield; but the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie fallow, so that the poor of your people may eat; and what they leave the wild animals may eat. You shall do the same with your vineyard, and with your olive orchard.
    Bible: Hebrew, Exodus 23:10,11.

    Y’know plenty of people, in their right mind, thought they saw things that didn’t exist, y’know, like flying saucers. The light was just right, and the angle and the imagination. Oh boy, if that’s what it is, then this is just an ordinary night. You and I are going to go home and go to sleep and tomorrow when we get up that sun’s gonna shine. Just like yesterday. Good ol’ yesterday.
