Town hoping to get aqua spin bikes

The town is hoping to offer aqua spin classes at the pool here this fall.

Council last night endorsed a grant application submission to the Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund (OSRCF) in hopes the town can land nearly $34,000 to acquire “aqua spin bikes,” which essentially are exercise bikes meant to be used underwater.

It's a boy

Each year, gifts and gift baskets are provided for the New Year's baby by local businesses and organizations.
