He says he will be moving back to Happy Valley-Goose Bay on Sunday, October 3.
Hamel and his family moved to Nain in September, 2003.
He says over the years he has come to love the lifestyle and people of the community.
Hamel has been very active in volunteering for various community groups during his time in Nain.
He coached the community’s Minor Hockey team for four years.
He has rallied on multiple occasions for improved services on the north coast.
He was also there to provide the fire brigade members with refreshments as they bravely battled the community’s fires.
