Town Crier turns 100



4 years of community connection

The next edition of the Town Crier will be published on July 26th and believe it or not, it will be the hundredth one! What started as a city funded initiative has evolved into a Chamber run and sponsor supported project which continues to connect us with each other and what is happening in and around our village. In preparation for a look back over 4 years of the Town Crier being delivered via email to residents and lovers of Fenelon Falls, we are asking you, our dear subscribers, to let us know what you like and love about our little newsletter-that-could. If you can spare a moment, please email us at – we’d love to hear from you!

Thank you for reading. Happy July, Fenelon Falls!

The Travel Media Association of Canada brings together the country’s most highly respected professional travel writers, bloggers, photographers, videographers and tourism industry experts. The conference was based in Peterborough this year and workshops were held throughout Kawartha Lakes to showcase our local area.

“I was thrilled to take part in the workshops this year,” explains Corrie. “Spending time with these industry experts was fantastic as well as having the opportunity to learn and promote more about Kawartha Lakes… it was a win, win!”

Corrie is the publisher, writer and photographer for our local newsletter and town website/blog as a volunteer but she also does regular promotional pieces about Kawartha Lakes in travel and tourism publications and websites across Ontario and promotes our local ATV and motor-sport opportunities in national magazines. Her wildlife/outdoor photography has been published internationally.

South Pond Farm

One of the workshops, Sculpture in the Fields, was held at the amazing South Pond Farms located near PontyPool, Ontario.  This amazing place was a treat just to visit.  To have the opportunity to learn about local artists, explore local and sustainable food sources, enjoy the culinary expertise of local chefs, and participate with peers in tourism photography opportunities, the day was a engaging experience of discovery.

“I wanted to thank the City of Kawartha Lakes – Economic Development, for recognizing our contribution towards local tourism and investing in our development,” expressed Corrie. “They have always been a supporter of our local projects and they have shown a continued commitment to helping us grow.”
