Come to Kingston and enjoy the range of activities offered for your enjoyment.
Lots of sport activities from regular events to CORK and Journey at the K-Rock in July.
Wonderful patios on which to enjoy a meal as well as lots of waterfront on which to boat or just to sit and watch
the waves roll in.
Today marks the start of the Gould Lake Outdoor Skills camp.
An eleven day trip to Killarney and Georgian Bay to learn and enhance skills such as canoeing, kayaking and camping. Then they return for a two day rest period before heading to palmer rapids for a further 4 days of outdoor skills.
Long trip, lots to learn and lots of fun to be had in the great outdoors.
A year of practice and hard work made the recital at the MacArthur auditorium wonderfully successful.
All styles of dance and a wide range of students showed their best side in the performance. Well worth going to see!
On Saturday, June 6th a number of participants moved up in their Karate Belt levels. Some to new Black Belts, Junior Black Belts and more. Testing was intense from 1pm to 9pm- but lots of smiles for work well done.
Great work by the Sarah's team that did the most ends in our office contest!
The entire office picked up the pace during the contest and there were lots of $50. prizes
being given out by Bill and Shane. Felt good to work in such a positive environment.
I would love to be a great gardener-but I have no talent to make the garden beautiful, so I use the green shrub plantings that need little care to fill the flower beds. They last all season and need only the occasional watering. Our neighbours provide colourful renderings that bring joy to the eye. As a last resort geraniums are a good mix for colour and durability.
Smiles are being generated by the weather these days. Summer is showing herself more often each week.
Pools are opening and delighting children and adults alike. In some residences a dip in the pool is followed closely by a dip in the hot tub. Remember the rules for the safe enjoyment of all things summer... not just pools but riding rides and not chasing those roll away balls into the street. ...
This Bayridge Secondary School production, directed by Mike Bullet, was exceptional. A cast of over 80 participated and performed with a skill accredited to seasoned artists. The full house audiences were transported to Oz by the Wicked Witch, Dorothy and the three fellow conspirators-Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion. If you missed this one stayed tuned for their next production.
Peaking around the corner are the first indications that winter is on it's last legs. Our changing seasons are what make us so Canadian, but it also allows us to rejoice when the first bit of grass is seen-even if it is brown. I'm smiling- hope you are as well.
There seems to be an on slot of new information making claims to be able to cure this difficult condition. It is a terrible problem and the victims seem to be the family and friends who care about the person suffering. They are the ones who try to maintain their affection and still not lose their tempers when the patient is demanding and not reasonable in what they believe. I hope they ...
Feb.2nd has come and gone and whether you trust the ground hog meteorologist or not, it seems we still are covered with the white winter blanket. Enjoy the season and remember in July you will wish it was cooler.
Each of you have positive things to share about our community. I invite you to respond here with things that interest you... anything from visiting those seniors in retirement homes to applauding the local hockey teams. Let us know what you find of interest.
We hear lots of negative comments on the teenagers, but I for one think we should focus on all those young people who have direction and energy to enhance our world. Boys and girls alike are pursuing activities that make us proud to watch, help organize and appreciate. From Karate(or other sports) to organizing swimming days in the winter, to taking part in theater productions, signing up for Gould ...
Yesterday it was again made clear the 'white cloud' is not something to take lightly. A senior neighbour with a snowblower was attempting to help his neighbour by clearing his walk and driveway. He slipped and fell. No damage done except to his pride when he couldn't get back up. Fortunately other neighbours rushed to assist him back to his feet. All was well. Remember to take care whether you ...
Once again the Bayridge Secondary School is producing a play showcasing their abundance of talent. This year the production is "Our Town'.

It is happening Tuesday through Friday-Dec 9-12 in the school starting at 7 pm.
Bayridge Secondary School on Taylor Kidd Blvd. has again successfully produced an annual fashion show where the proceeds were donated to the United Way. This is a fun evening with the teens showing off the current styles from local shops. And some not so fashionable styles from Value Village - but all for fun in the name of a good cause. The male segment of the Fashion Show is always particularly ...
The season is officially underway as we have had the Santa Claus Parade. It was fun to watch all the adults and children be amazed and entertained as the parade made it's way down Princess Street. It is certainly cooler having the parade starting at 5p, but the lights and decorations are more enjoyable. Don't miss this event next year.

October 2 and 3, 2014, high school Leadership Camp takes place in Westport for Bayridge Secondary School. By invitation only for young people who demonstrate leadership qualities to staff members who recommend them. It's good fun and focuses on ROCK: respect, optimism, courage and kindness. Great way to train our young people.
On A7 of this paper is a great article of the spirit of teenagers who are concerned and interested in volunteering and are conscious of being green -not just for today but for their world tomorrow. Great emphasis for the paer to promote.
Friday, June 6, 2014 was the Relay for Life. If you weren't there, plan on next year. It is truly a celebration of Life for Cancer survivors as well as a celebration of the those who lost the battle. We all know someone in both categories. It is held in the RMC inner field and runs from 7pm to 7am. Participates walk the track in support of those who have had someone in their life affected. ...
After having worked with several other real estate companies, I can't imagine why anyone would want to be connected to another organization. We offer all the services found in other brokerages and as an added bonus we communicate with each other and with other members of the Multiple Listing Service. Communication is often the most important issue when you want your house sold or if you wish ...

I went to a Tallack Karate Demonstration on Saturday morning.
The children ranged in age from 8 to adult. The range of their committment ran from 3 years to 13 years. They were dedicated to becoming more proficient and displaying what they had learned. They number 12 in all. They displayed athletic skills most of us would we pleased to own. This same group had performed in the K Rock ...
The smallest thing you do affects everything. Thomas Carlyle
Take a minute or an hour to go and watch your children at whatever age interact with their family, their peers and their educators. You will be astounded at the growth you gain from being part of their world. It is a very different experience that what we as adults consider important. It is an picture of the future and most ...
The future of a city is not in its economic or political structure or even in its growth of housing and industry-although these things are certainly part of what makes a city great.
My belief is that the future of the city is in the children and young adults and how we as a community encourage them to grow and participate. The most ordinary happening becomes the most extraordinary. Young ...
The girls on the Bayridge Public Schhol Basketball team did an excellent job winning the interschool competition on April 30, 2011. Way to go Girls, that last game with Lancaster was a cliff hanger. Bayridge was undefeated in their games-why to go girls.
Tallack's Karate Kids continue to enjoy the teaching from Tallack's through the Boys and Girls Club-totally at he expense of Ken Tallack. Excellent teaching and guiding of young people.
At least twice a year the proceeds from competitons are donated to the Kingston Boys and Girls Club-Ken says it is just a appreciation of what they provided when he was a kid.
