The Municipal Centre has a colourful new flag flying high alongside Canada's red & white. The Pride flag was raised by Rainbow Union, Dundas and Grenville to celebrate Pride month. The flag flies as a symbol of the municipality standing with the LGBTQ2 community. 🌈
The Active Transportation Advisory Committee had the pleasure to host their June meeting at École élémentaire et secondaire publique Rivière Rideau. The students shared their ideas about North Grenville Trails with the committee!
