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.
