It was a beautiful day for a pick-up hockey game on the ice rink in Eugenia.

 

BY SOUTHGREY.CA STAFF — Markdale, Priceville and Eugenia all held Family Day activities in Grey Highlands with the help of many volunteers. Outdoor skating rinks at Eugenia and Priceville will remain available following Family Day for as long as the weather allows. 

Hard working volunteers spent many hours maintaining the outdoor rinks and preparing for each event.

All locations offered fun family-oriented activities in the great outdoors. The weather cooperated and the sunshine resulted in the happy faces of families from across the municipality.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
