International Beer Day


Strange having a holiday during the COVID-19 Pandemic.  Although most of Ontario is now in stage 3 of restrictions, not much has changed.  People are permitted to dine in at restaurants, but we’re so used to take out we’re still choosing to stay home to eat.

The beaches are full as everyone is trying to enjoy some of what’s left of summer.  Unfortunately, too full and many have had to close due to capacity issues.
