It was a rainy Tuesday this week, but Fenelon is a little more cheerful now that the hanging baskets, bridge baskets and planters are out. Thank you to the enthusiastic Horticultural Society volunteers, CKL Parks & Rec Staff, and Chamber team for working so hard in the rain to help bring a splash of colour to town.
The long-awaited unveiling of the Fenelon Theatre Marquee Sign is almost here!
There was a definite buzz around town last week as the Marquee sign was being installed in its new location on Oak Street, across from Murphy's Lockside Pub and Patio and next to the Chamber's Tourism Office.
This Saturday, September 29th, join in celebrating the efforts of the dedicated group of volunteers who have worked hard to save and restore the Fenelon Theatre Marquee sign at the Let's Light it Up! event.
If you feel like strutting your stuff, come dressed as your favourite film character and enjoy free popcorn and a silent auction. Come out to see the sign lit up as it was meant to be! Saturday at the Marquee Sign on Oak Street, the ceremony starts at 7:30 pm. See you there!

It’s not often that backyard chicken coops, marijuana, and potholes are discussed in one evening but those topics and many more were addressed at the Candidates Forum co-sponsored by Fenelon Forward and Fenelon Falls & District Chamber of Commerce.
All four Mayoral candidates; Andy Letham, Gord James, Brian Junkin and Peter Weygang along with the Ward 3 Councillor candidates; Stephen Clarke, Doug Elmslie and Roger McInnis gave presentations on their platforms and answered questions from the audience.
Over 120 people were in attendance for the two hour event and attendees submitted written questions or addressed the candidates from the microphone. The questions covered areas mentioned above and others such as; the proposed Ross Memorial Hospital amalgamation, low income housing, roads, development, and issues relating to an aging population.
Pamela Vanmeer from Kawartha 411 moderated the event and kept it flowing smoothly so that each candidate had an equal opportunity to present and answer questions. Thank you to all those who submitted their questions via email and attended in person. The evening was informative and engaging.
