My 2016 Wishlist for North Grenville

Snowflake 32Dear Santa – I’ve been a reasonably good boy and have tried to do my best this fall despite a broken leg, so please help me out with the following wishlist, if you can:

  1. A spirit of cooperation and collaboration between the Old Town Kemptville BIA and Chamber of Commerce that will effectively serve the interests of small business in the community
  2. The completion of the South Branch Waterfront Trail
  3. An outdoor rink in Riverside Park built with $250K worth of funding from the Sens Foundation
  4. A new gazebo with power for Maplewood Park in Oxford Mills
  5. Forgiveness of both the Municipal and County portions of the Kemptville Youth Centre’s property tax
  6. More donations to, and grants from, the North Grenville Community Foundation
  7. More public participation in, and scrutiny of, Municipal politics
  8. and, of course, a bottle of bourbon and a copy of the year-end edition of the New York Review of Books

Merry Christmas, Johnny Barclay
