UPDATED story as of 3pm: The Char-Lan Skating Club's annual showcase originally scheduled for 6pm this evening (March 6) at the Char-Lan Rec. Centre in Williamstown, has been postponed to March 27 due to threatened freezing rain this evening. Organizers made the decision to reschedule the event this afternoon.

The theme for this year's show is Canada 150, and the event is the highlight of the season for the children of the club, who perform a variety of musical routines, much to the delight of parents and friends in the stands.

Here's a photo from the 2016 show. You can re-live all the action of last year's event in our online gallery here

Is the ice safe?

North Glengarry Recreation Director Terry Gilmer reminds us that ice conditions change daily, so it's important to check before venturing out onto "frozen" rivers and ponds. He adds that they are working on informational signs for Mill Pond at Alexandria's Island Park to help guide those who might like to take advantage of the skating service or do some ice fishing.
