Trees down, trees up

Several of our 'original trees' in the downtown have finally succumbed to Dutch Elm disease and were taken down (before falling down) this week.

I'm happy to say that that we thought ahead about the impending demise of these historic trees and started a tree planting program for the civic gardens around the Band Stand a few years ago. Ten families have donated pine or oak trees to the "Family Tree" program! These trees have settled in well and are a welcome addition to the green spaces of downtown.

Tennis anyone?

Those of you who are my age or older (I'll let you self-sort....) will likely remember when Parrsboro had a very active Tennis Club. The courts were pretty much fully booked - you even had to sign up - in the 70s & 80s.

Tennis is a fun sport for all ages and we are fortunate to have two nicely surfaced courts here in the centre of town.

Great news from Marc at Parrsboro Recreation that the courts have just been fitted with new nets! Actually lots of good info about new activities in Parrsboro on their new facebook page: check it this link. Way to go Marc....gettin us movin' again with all your fun rec ideas!
