Alexandria's junior 'B' Glens hockey club invites fans to join players and staff in Canada Day festivities.
Players will be walking the parade route collecting non-perishable food items for our local food bank at St. Vincent de Paul. Please be generous with donations. In return, when an item is donated, you will be offered a free ticket for one Glens home game.
At the conclusion of the parade, activities will move to Island Park, where the Glens will have a hardest shot competition and a dunk tank. As well, Glens ball caps and jerseys will be available for purchase.
A new basketball court is coming to Alexandria's Island Park, and the township is planning to christen it with a Canada Day 3-on-3 tournament.
The July 1 event will run from 4 to 8 p.m., with the following boys and girls divisions: U13, U16, and open (any age). Entry is $20 per team, and the deadline to sign up is June 29.

Watch for a return of the weed harvester to Mill Pond in Alexandria July 16 as North Glengarry continues its “aggressive strategy” against Canada Waterweeds (Elodea canadensis).
Regulations prevent the weed removal being carried out before July 15. “If we were to begin earlier, we would risk interrupting the spawning season of the large and small-mouth bass, and other fish that call Mill Pond their home,” the township says.
With Summer unofficially beginning this weekend, many will be considering taking a dip at the beach in Alexandria's Island Park.
