WEEKEND EVENTS: JULY 28 – JULY 30, 2017

I am disproportionately upset at the fact that our beloved beach is closed due to high water levels. I don’t know about you, but I feel cheated out of my 2 or 3 months of beach season; to be able to pick up and head down for the day or for just an hour. Now a beach trip involves a whole other lake and much more travel and planning.

Even Burlington Beach rentals had to move their operation to Binbrook.

Well, officially closed or not, it is just not there anymore. We need some good juju here, Burlington!!…Let’s all hope and pray that we can have our expansive beach back by next summer!

And even though it’s not Burlington, we can’t ignore the fact that our neighbours to the east are hosting  a golf thing called the Canadian Open, and I am told that it’s a big deal. If you are so inclined, here’s where you can get your tickets. Go on and get your golfer’s tan!

(pssssst….I also have insider information that the PING G400s are now available at Burlington Golftown, so…maybe that’s helpful to someone who would know what that means).
