Canada Day Celebrations this Saturday (July 3rd)!

The Sturgeon Point Association warmly invites all residents of the Village and their guests to join us in our annual Welcome Back Social in celebration of Canada Day and a new summer season!  Please join us at 12:00 noon on Saturday July 3rd, 2010 at the Park in the Woods for a great opportunity to reconnect with old friends and neighbours as well as a chance to meet new residents in our village.  Enjoy a hotdog, juice, or pop and a dessert while sharing news with those we haven’t seen in a while and making plans for another wonderful summer at Sturgeon Point.    We look forward to seeing everyone there!

Spring Cleanup Bee – Saturday May 22nd, 10:00 a.m.

This is a reminder that on Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. we’ll be having a spring cleanup bee to spruce up the public areas around the Point. We’ll meet at the Park and break into teams. Bring your rake, brooms, shovels, garbage and recycling bags and anything else you think would be helpful. Light refreshments will be provided.

Sturgeon Point in the News

Recent activities in our small corner of the world have attracted some interest from the media. The Park in the Woods project was mentioned in both The Lindsay Post and The Promoter. 

The park project is certainly deserving of attention, but Sturgeon Point isn’t just about the park. Kawartha Life thought that the SLSC’s ongoing program deserved some attention in their big summer issue, and we’ve captured that article for you too. You can read any of these articles (in pdf format) by clicking on the appropriate link below:

If you see any mention of Sturgeon Point in the news, please let us know. We’ll archive the articles and preserve them for all to enjoy over the years to come.  And if you have clippings of past articles about our community, we’d much appreciate your sharing them with us so that we can build up an archival history of our community on our web site.
