Bryson Lions and Equinox host record crowd for Community Day: Last Saturday, hundreds of visitors to Pontiac got a chance to see the wonders of the Ottawa River up close - real close.
The Bryson Lions Club and Equinox Whitewater Rafting co-hosted their annual Community Day. About 200 people took advantage of cut rates to ride the rapids that churn through the boulders along the west side of Calumet Island.
That evening, 365 sat down to a steak dinner which proves that the Community Day is a popular event for more than just the rafting crowd.
“This is our best year yet,” said organizer John Maheral afterwards.
The day attracted Ontarians in droves. In all, the day is expected to clear more than $4,000 for Lions Club projects.
Shawville High holds 50th reunion: The class of ‘43 Shawville High School graduates had a reunion at Pine Lodge on July 3.
