Participants will be required to pre-register to all of our programs and events to ensure we are still under the total restriction number allowed. All participants must social distance at 6 feet apart , sanitize hands, and wear a mask in all common areas, but there is no need for masks in areas of exercise or outdoor events. For example: wear a mask while entering or leaving any indoor facility, signing in, waiting for any reason (parents or participants), or going to the washroom. Masks will be made available to participants who do not bring their own. Masks are not required at day camps where physical distancing can be maintained between participants but must be worn when social distancing cannot be maintained. Example children doing arts and crafts inside sitting next to each other.

It is with great sadness that Warden, Council and Staff of the Municipality of St. Mary’s extend sympathy to the family of the late Deputy Warden Jacqueline Dort. Deputy Warden Dort began representing her continuants in the riding of District 6, Goshen and Area in May 2001 as Councillor. In 2016 Councillor Dort was nominated for Deputy Warden and accepted the position which she held for the past four years. She had been a strong voice and mentor at the council table for the past 19 years and will be greatly missed by all. At the next regular meeting of Council on Monday, August 10th, 2020 Council will recognize Deputy Warden Dort and her years of service with a moment of silence in her memory.
