All three fire stations in the South Dundas Fire Department held open houses on Saturday, October 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. complete with tours, free souvenirs and barbecue munchies. Fire Chief Chris McDonough said the open houses were a a great success and that he’s “looking forward to doing it again next year.” At the Williamsburg location the local children were having fun climbing into, out of, and on the fire trucks. From all appearances, they were loving every minute of it.
Despite the lack of snow, this year’s Snowarama for Easter Seals, held at the Riverside Heights Community Centre on Saturday, February 2, still raised nearly $2,000, according to Leslie Disheau, co-ordinator with Jean MacDougal of the event, now in its 17th year. “It was disappointing the snow disappeared just ahead of the day,” Disheau said, “but the Nation Valley Snowmobile Association, made up of the South Dundas Snowmobile Club, the Winchester Township Snowmobile Club and the Mountain Trailblazers, continues to support us. The funds raised in our area, stay in Dundas to help our kids in need.”
This year the Easter Seal Society set up a website to make it possible for people to pledge on line. As in other years, the pancakes and sausage breakfast served at Snowarama was run by the Brewers R. A. Hockey Club and Keith Robinson. Helping fund raise, top photo (l-r) are Abby Steward, Hailey Steward, Mia Serviss and Kylie Schell, while Lacey Schell and Ben Serviss sit in front.
