A large part of the willow at the Head Lake Park bridge was broken off during a storm last week. When arborists evaluated the damage they found that the tree was no longer safe and needed to be removed. /JENN WATT Staff

Pond hockey a showcase of local support

To the Editor

Last weekend I was lucky enough to be a volunteer at the Canadian Pond Hockey Championships held at Pinestone. The organizing committee did an outstanding job of making sure everything was in place the ice crew were amazing in their ability to maintain the ice surfaces and the volunteers ensured that everyone left with a positive impression of Haliburton and its friendly people. None of this would have been possible without the help of the many sponsors who willingly donated products funds and their time. It is now up to all of us to show our thanks by supporting these companies with our business whenever we can. The many activities that take place over the year can only happen if we all support each other.
