Thank you to everyone that participated in North Algona Wilberforce’s first online Canada Day event.  It was a new experience for the Township and it turned out to be a lot of fun.  Early next week the recording of the event will be posted and available for all to watch at your leisure.

With summer started and Canada Day over we are into some very hot days.  Please take special care of children, older adults and pets to limit exposure to extreme heat.  Drink lots of water, use fans or air conditioners, and do not leave children or pets in unattended vehicles. With the Covid-19 pandemic we are not at this time opening cooling stations, if you are suffering and would like to get out of the heat for a brief time or just want a drink of cold water stop by the Township office during regular office hours (Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) and our staff will try to accommodate you.

Cooling off in a lake or river is a good way to beat the heat.  Swim with a buddy and keep close watch of children playing in the water.  Please be aware of the possibility of Blue Green Algae in Lake Dore. Watch for signs at water accesses and check the Renfrew County and District Health Unit web page or call them at 613-732-3629, before entering the water.

We are well into hay season and round bales are appearing in fields throughout the Township.  Hopefully, recent rains have given other crops a much-needed boost. Residents and visitors please give way to farm vehicles with wide loads.

With market garden season there is lots of traffic stopping and pulling over to visit farms or roadside stands.  Be respectful of frequent horse driven vehicles in these areas.

Campfires are a nice way to enjoy a summer evening, 2’ X 2’ X 2’ campfires are permitted.  Check our website regularly as conditions change rapidly at times.
