What’s cooking in Westport!

 

Cook together in the community kitchen on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month! Learn new skills, take home food. Childcare is available.  The 1st Tuesday is at the Free Methodist Church in Westport and the 3rd Tuesday is at Country Roads in Portland. For more information check out Facebook!

Join us to try new foods and recipes, share a meal, bring extras home, have a good time, and meet new people in your community. We pick the recipes together, focusing on local, seasonal, budget-friendly ingredients. Some months we have a specific cultural theme, a guest speaker from the community, or a special event.

The group is facilitated by Registered Dietitian, Kate Earl, from Country Roads Community Health Centre. We discuss different nutrition and food safety topics each month and members share healthy eating tips with each other.

The program is FREE. There is no cost to participate. We also offer free childcare. Please ask us if you need help with travel costs. All we ask from you is that you participate in the cooking (and clean up!), come ready to have fun, and be open to trying new foods.

 

Date :
Tuesday, September 3, 2019 from 10am to 1pm

Explore Rideau lakes ONTARIO

Rideau Lakes is truly the hub of eastern Ontario, with Provincial Highway 15 and the scenic historic Rideau Waterway running through its Centre. The Township of Rideau Lakes is blessed with an abundance of lakes. Rideau Lakes has 500 km (310 miles) of shoreline, excluding the Rideau Waterway. The Waterway itself traverses the Township, from the towering granite cliffs at Chaffey's Locks to the more gentle and pastoral areas of the Lower Rideau Lake. The Waterway represents an important link with the past. With island-studded lakes, man-made channels, flowing rivers and pastoral sites along its length, the Waterway offers excellent water for canoeing, sailing, boating and fishing.

Along with all of the water and activities that go with it, the Rideau Lakes is surrounded by beautiful little towns and villages offering unique shopping and dining. Several festivals and fairs also provide entertainment while visiting the area. During the summer there is a Farmer's Market every Saturday morning. If you have never been to the Rideau Lakes area or you are a returning visitor and would like to find out about places to stay, stores to shop at and things to do, visit our Business Directory.
