Skate the Lake 2017 is finished and it was a big success!

Skate the Lake 2017

Portland, Ontario – The 13th annual speed skating event was held on the Big Rideau Lake January 28th & 29th and it was a weekend filled with fun! Waking up early was well worth it for the ice conditions on the lake were amazing on both days. Participants could take part in the 5K & 10K races on Saturday and 25K & 50K regular marathon skating events on Sunday. Kids had the chance to try out their skating skills in a Kids 5K event on Saturday.

There were plenty activities to keep visitors of all ages active and warm on both days.

After the speed skating races, the viewers could enjoy a warm meal, served in the Portland Community Hall. The Portland Hall Board took care of that by organizing a Ham & Bean Brunch.

For the first time since the race started in 2004, people were able to watch the race from above, as helicopter rides were available on Saturday. There were curling and sleigh rides organized for kids and everyone could take a spin on the ice to music after the final race was finished on Saturday. At dusk, there were even fireworks with an after fireworks sit down dinner at the Portland Hall.

If you were part of the event and captured any amazing photos, send them to registration@portlandoutdoors.com and your photo just might get featured on the Portland Outdoors website.

For anyone interested in next year’s event, it will be held January 27th & 28th 2018 and you can already let the organizers know if you have any great ideas or would like to volunteer.

Rabies Vaccination Clinic – Westport

4

Protect Your Family – Dogs & Cats Must Be Vaccinated

The goal of hosting these clinics is to help provide rabies vaccinations to as many cats and dogs as possible. Prompting this change in date is the celebration of World Rabies Day in September (September 28, 2016).

In addition, at this time of the year hunters are preparing for the hunting season and it is important that their dogs be vaccinated against rabies. While running in the bush, hunting dogs have the potential of interacting with wild life that may have rabies. It is important that pet cats or dogs remain up-to-date with their rabies vaccination as they too could be at risk of getting rabies. By increasing the vaccination coverage in pets we will help to minimize the potential transmission of rabies to humans.

Rabies is a deadly disease that can be prevented. Did you know that a person dies from Rabies every 10 minutes throughout the world? Help prevent the spread of rabies by vaccinating your pet dog or cat.

Dogs & Cats must be on a leash or in a carrier. For more information contact us at: 613-345-5685 or 1-800-660-5853

 

Date :

September 14, 2016 | 2 to 6 pm
