Batawa Trails Project
The staff at the Ski Hill are very excited about our Canada 150 trails project. There are plans for both new trails and improvements to some existing trails in Batawa.† Construction will begin soon on approximately seven kilometres of trails that will be geared towards hikers and cyclists of all ages and abilities.†
We are looking for community volunteers to become part of the project.† We would like to get feedback from you, Batawa Residents, about the layout and features we have planned. We are also looking for volunteers to help with the construction and maintenance of the trail system.

Remembering Peter Suijker
It is with sadness that we inform you of the passing of Peter Suijker. Peter and his wife Henny have been very active members of the Church in Batawa and Frankford, and well known throughout the community. Peter presented the Father Dunphy award each year at the Sacred Heart Graduation Ceremony and was an avid chess player attending each week with Seniors Unlimited. Peter always had a smile and a kind word for everyone.
His funeral mass will be held on Thursday, August 17 at 11:00am in Batawa. http://bit.ly/2vy1JDS
