IROQUOIS — Iroquois’ waterfront committee celebrated the opening of a new sun deck and canteen at Dundas County’s most popular beach.
The ‘Friends of the Iroquois Beach’ and local dignitaries took part in the Aug. 3 occasion as children looked on from the sprawling new deck.
Members of the Friends of the Iroquois Waterfront include chair Jim Wilson, Keith Poore, Margaret Lee, Diane Macintyre, Jim Millard, Henry Swank and coordinator Allison Banford. In celebration of recent improvements at Iroquois Beach, they pose here with South Dundas Mayor Evonne Delegarde and Councillor Archie Mellan, along with beach supporter John Ross and one of the beach’s first swimming lesson teachers and lifeguards, Bonnie Adair. They are joined by local children at the beach. From left: Councillor Mellan, Ross, Wilson, Swank, Mayor Delegarde, Adair, Lee, Millard, Banford and Poore. Zandbergen photo, Nation Valley News
The new sun deck. Late last month, thieves stole $10,000 worth of tools overnight from the contractor assembling this deck and renovating the Iroquois Beach canteen — but that unfortunate incident didn’t hold up yesterday’s official unveiling of the improvements at the beach.
