WINCHESTER – The North Dundas council held their first public meeting since early March at the Joel Steele Arena on Tues., Aug. 11.

Prior to this meeting all of the council’s business had been lived streamed over Facebook. 

The pandemic has resulted in new norms being put into place such as mandatory masks and social distancing, so the fact that the council meeting was held in the arena, following all of the rules regarding COVID-19 is an encouraging sign that some kind of normal may be just around the corner.

The meeting featured a run down of all of the events that are starting to pop up as the province relaxes some of its restrictions.

The township’s roller skating program has resumed at the arena. The Winchester Dairy Fest Committee puts it on with some help from the municipality. The skating takes place every Thursday and Friday evening from 6 to 9 p.m.

The Recreation and Culture Department in July, started up a new program called “Zumba in the Park”. It is held at Sox Field every Tuesday. 

The program is for ages 14 and up and lasts for seven weeks. There is a cost for the program, so call the municipality for more information.

North Dundas began permitting access to its parks and play structures on July 17. The areas have signs listing the public health guidelines that must be followed.

Baseball players are back at it at the Chesterville Field and Morgan Field.

A series of drive in movie nights was hosted by the Mountain Township Agricultural Society as a fundraiser as well as for residents to get out and experience something different.

The arena was the location for a blood donor clinic on July 28. The next one is scheduled for Sept. 22.

Ballroom dancing has returned to the Chesterville Community Hall. The instruction takes place second Saturday from 7 to 10 p.m. and you need to be registered through the dance instructor.

All of the municipality’s halls are now available, however anyone who rents or uses them must follow pandemic regulations such as wearing a mask at all times and social distancing as well as self-assessment.
