What we are all about!

Athol Recreation Committee has the mandate to use funds entrusted to it by the Municipality to provide opportunities for recreation in our community. We present the annual Strawberry Social, a Halloween dance,  music nights, movie screenings, yoga classes, yard sales, craft workshops, concerts, play days, clothes swaps and a fiercely fought Scrabble tournament. We organize and subsidize bus trips to go bowling and to a Christmas pantomime, mini golf days as well as sponsoring regular comedy improv nights with the Taste That troupe all in the Athol Town Hall.
We have donated sports equipment to Athol and South Marysburgh School and helped some children participate in extracurricular activities they might otherwise have missed.

We sponsored Tynika Williams of Athol to play hockey with the Belleville Bearcats, and now we welcome enquiries about sponsoring other local youth in educational and recreational activities.

Feel free to contact the committee to talk about how we can work with you.

About 65 friends, family and community members enjoyed a preview screening of Cherry Valley filmmaker Tess Girard’s documentary “As the Crow Flies”. The film follows a group of 17-year-old air cadets on an intense seven-week course to get their private pilot’s licence. Tess was a graduate of the same program and was able to provide an intimate behind-the-scenes portrayal of the cadets.

Tess approached the Athol Rec Committee to arrange the screening, which occurred cioincident with its premiere on the Documentary channel. Attendees were able to have a glass of wine or beer, with snacks including tasty samosas, while watching the film. Everyone enjoyed the show, and Tess was on hand afterwards to answer questions.

Community Conversations

Community Conversations

  Tuesday November 28   4 to 6 PM

Athol Town Hall, Cherry Valley

 You are invited to share your thoughts and ideas about our community’s strengths and what you see for our community’s future.

In 2013 The County Foundation’s Vital Signs report created a snapshot of the community, a measure of how we’re doing as we reach for the goal “to create a safe, healthy, vibrant community where everyone is able to meet their potential”.

This community profile was updated with the 2015 Vital Signs Progress Report.

This year The County Foundation (TCF) and the County of Prince Edward Police Services Board, in partnership with Tamarack Institute, are convening a series of informal, facilitated Community Conversations to gather current perspectives on successes and challenges in Prince Edward County. These conversations, along with current statistical data, will inform the 2018 Vital Signs report as well as the Community Safety and Well-being Plan which is currently in development.

Everyone over the age of 12 is welcome. Light refreshments will be served. Those who wish may enter a draw for a $100 Sobey’s gift card. Please join us for an engaging conversation. 

For further information:
