Oh what a night!

The kids of Athol set the valley on fire last night at the first Athol Kids Dance Party.

With DJ Pat in a Hat and Assistant Liz laying down a mean playlist, more than 45 Athol kids between grades 3 – 8 brought the house down with their mad dance skills, intake of pop and chips, and dedication to a good ol’ fashion conga line.

Thanks to Jess Gibeau of Cherry Valley for reaching out to the Athol Rec Committee to partner on the dance, and to the many parents and community members who volunteered. We’re not sure who had more fun; the kids, the parents reminiscing about their first dance, or the mom who took salsa lessons from one of the young dancers.

Mayor Steve Ferguson and Councillor Sam Branderhorst invite Athol ward residents to a community conversation on Wednesday, May 31.

They will share ward-specific updates and information before opening the floor so that attendees can discuss topics of interest in their area.

This event is the second in a series of community conversations in wards across Prince Edward County in 2023. Last month, Mayor Ferguson and Councillor John Hirsch met with residents of South Marysburgh ward.

The upcoming conversation will take place at the Athol Town Hall (1685 County Road 10, Cherry Valley) from 7-9 pm. If there is a particular topic you wish to discuss at the upcoming event, please send an email in advance to Joy McLeod, Executive Assistant to Mayor Ferguson, atย jmcleod@pecounty.on.ca.

Community conversations will take place in every ward in 2023. The location and date of future meeting will be announced three weeks in advance. Sign up to receive updates from the County and follow the municipality on Facebook or Twitter.
