Surveying Morrisburg’s beautiful new beach front
Angus Parkinson (left) and Micah McCourt, from a perch on the life-guard tower, are clearly enjoying an aerial view of Morrisburg’s exciting, family-friendly, new waterfront area. Micah and Angus were just two of the nearly 800 people who came out to celebrate the beach’s grand re-opening on Saturday, June 22. One of the chief organizers, Michael Burton, was “overwhelmed” by the support and interest shown by the community. After the official ribbon-cutting, sun lovers could enjoy free food, strawberry shortcake, great music, games and plenty of “cool” dips in the river. Incidentally Angus and Micah promised they would let everyone know should they happen to spot any “shark fins.” (The Leader/Gibb photo)
