If you are driving west along the Bath road past the sprawling bedroom community of Amherstview (named after its commanding view of Jeffrey Amherst’s grand island) you will encounter some distinct reminders of our Loyalist heritage.
Summer is flying by in the blink of an eye but I'm grateful to have some fun memories to look back on while exploring Lennox & Addington County over the past few weeks.

Internet access is more than just a convenience: communities, businesses and institutions need it to offer new services and create new opportunities. That’s why, through an investment of over $10.8 million, the Government of Canada is helping 21 communities and up to 38 institutions in eastern Ontario get online with new or improved high-speed Internet access. Of the 21 communities that will benefit from this investment, one is an Indigenous community.
