Boat Launching Ramp Officially Opened

Under cool, fall skies, the new boat launching ramp at Mackey was officially opened on Friday, October 23. Present for the occasion was Len Hopkins, MP, Morris Hamilton, MPP, County Warden, Roselma Sinclair and neighbouring reeves and their spouses as well as Reeve of the Townships of Head, Clara and Maria and her Council.

Len Hopkins in cutting the ribbon expressed his pleasure at being present for the opening of the ramp and remarked that several such ramps had now been installed in the County and looked forward to there being yet another at Deux Rivieres in the not too distant future.

Reeve Loretta Boissonneault outlined the history of the ramp, commenting on the various steps involved with Ontario Hydro, Department of Highways and the Department of Public Works before the project could be realized.

Congratulatory greetings were extended from the Provincial Government by Morris Hamilton, and from Renfrew County by the Warden, Roselma Sinclair. Following the opening, a dinner party was held at the Deux Rivieres Hotel; the group then moved on to the Township Hall and Community Centre at Stonecliffe where dancing to the Country Ramblers was enjoyed. A draw for a comforter at the dance was won by Paul Elliott of Lands and Forests, Stonecliffe.
