Wiser Older Women meet the first Tuesday of each month for lunch at noon. They will be meeting at Rivendell Golf Course on Tuesday, July 5. The Purple Juliets, the local chapter of The Red Hat Society has morphed into this new creation WOW, (Wiser, Older, Women). Over the years friendships have developed that they wanted to continue, yet interest in traditional costumed Red Hat Outings had waned so they decided to go " low organization". If you are a wiser, older woman, you are welcome to join them at noon on Tuesday, July 5. For more info call 613-374-1425.
Harrowsmith celebrates Canada Day with a Friday, July 1 parade and a day of festivities in Centennial Park. The parade starts at 10 am.

(This car will be featured in the upcoming Verona Car Show in August. ) Then stay to enjoy the many events that will be in the park, topped off with a spectacular display of fireworks in the evening.
