When you change the time one hour ahead, you should also check your smoke alarm batteries and replace any not in good shape.

MacTier Figure Skating Club annual end of the season skating carnival was held on Sunday, March 3 at the MacTier Arena. The Skaters did their best and entertained all in attendance. Congratulations. While mentioning the MacTier Arena, the ice plant will be shut down on March 18 for another season.
Want to rent some ice before that date, better call 705-375-2140.
After the ice is out and the floor cleaned up, it is hoped that two or three floor shuffleboard courts will be installed on the floor. Hopefully this will be available to interested seniors and any taxpayers that may wish to run a league during the spring summer months. I will have more information on the shuffleboard within the next couple of weeks.
