What Can We Do This Winter in the Kawarthas – Part 1!

 Mark your calendars for February 7th and 13th!

 You don’t have any reason to be bored this winter! Instead of staying indoors, get outside and enjoy the variety of winter sports and activities that the region has to offer.

Bel Rotary Polar Plunge – Sunday February 7th

You won’t want to miss the February dip into the Chemong Lake – all for charity! Of course you can simply be a warm spectator and watch dozens of people brave the icy water to raise money for the local Rotary Club.


Or you can put a team together and raise some money for the local community. Join the fun so you can be ‘Freezin for a Reason!’ Each person taking the plunge is asked to raise a minimum of $200.

In over 35 years the group has raised in excess of $600,000 for charities and local organizations. Go see all the fun in Ennismore on February 7th.


Get all of the details and even register a team at http://www.belrotaryplunge.com/

The fun will take place at the Ennismore Waterfront Park on Ennis Road.


The Ontario Family Fishing Event Saturday February 13th

Have fun with more than 1,000 people on Chemong Lake for the annual family ice fishing event.

You can fish during one of the two annual license-free fishing events in Ontario. Representatives from the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters will be on hand to help first time ice anglers catch a fish. The kids will love the excitement! And every child who participates gets a prize!


It can’t get any easier – the holes are drilled and the equipment is supplied – your family just has to dress warm and enjoy the fun!

And after the fishing derby there will be free family fun including an archery range, wildlife displays, a movie in the amphitheater, hot chocolate and popcorn – and a fish feeding frenzy in the giant fish aquarium.

Mark your calendar for February 13th from 10 am to 2 pm at the Bel Rotary Park, Chemong Lake, Ennismore Ontario, 1495 Yankee Line.
