Congratulations to Tracey Evans, Shopping Spree Winner!

The Sunsational Sidewalk Sale last weekend was a great success, with shoppers crawling all over Fenelon for the hot deals.

To mark the event, the Events Committee very generously collected a package of gift certificates from participating stores and raffled off the grand prize of a $250 Shopping Spree.

The winner, Bobcaygeon resident Tracey Evans, was delighted with the prize. Tracey says that she is "so grateful for the shopping spree in Fenelon Falls! It was a lovely afternoon with my daughter Olivia. We shopped throughout the local stores and appreciated breathing in the fresh air from the shores of your local lakes; Cameron and Sturgeon. We enjoyed the Splash Pad and sipped mint milkshakes and cherry yogurts throughout the afternoon. I have been battling cancer recently, and the afternoon out on the town was a perfect way for Olivia and I to spend the day together. Thank you Fenelon Falls, and thank you to the Chamber of Commerce Events Committee for organizing the sale."

We are so glad to have such a warm and welcoming community that allows people to relax and reconnect. We look forward to seeing Tracey and Olivia again when they come back for their shopping spree, and wish Tracey all the best.

 
5 Generations of Fenelon Falls

History provided by Ali Carter

My Father’s Grandfather bought a property on Sturgeon Lake in 1912. Our family has been summering here for over 100 years. In 1999, my parents retired here and lead active lives in the community playing golf, curling, and bridge.

When my brother and I had our children, we made it a priority to visit Fenelon Falls, not only during the summer months, to take part in the many unique and exciting events, and variety of activities, the various seasons bring.

My daughter Quinn (8) and her cousin, Cole (9) have been coming to the area year-round since they were born. They are the 5th generation on our property. They are the best of friends and always look forward to their time together at Grandma and Grandpa’s!

Some of their favourite Fenelon activities are:

  • Country Cupboard for frozen yogurt
  • Lunch at Murphy’s
  • Visiting the Fenelon Museum where my Great Aunt Elenor Mann’s figure skates are displayed
  • Skating at Fenelon arena
  • Fenelon Park
  • Harvest Festival
  • Santa Day
  • Candy bar at Grr8 Finds
  • Shopping at Butterfly Boutique and Red Apple
  • and probably their favourite...tube rides and kayaks on Sturgeon Lake!

I may have missed a few things! We adore Fenelon and are so impressed with the diversity and inclusive nature of this town. Every day we all feel blessed that 106 years ago our relatives decided that this was the place to lay roots.
